Commission – Sesshomaru (Inuyasha)

This is a plush commission for *FidgeyTova* on DA, it was a very detailed character to plushify.

Painting all the details is what took many hours to do especially because I don’t have a steady hand.  After struggling so much to make fine lines I didn’t have a choice than to buy some detail paint brush set which it helped a lot to make those fine lines on the flowers. As requested by the commissioner this plushie has only one arm.  I don’t usually make weapons because I still need a lot to learn but without his swords the character wouldn’t be complete, right?

This is sesshomaru from “Inuyasha” and this is a plush that some people were eager to see it finished.  No pressure at all, huh?

As a side note  . . . I love brushing his gorgeous long hair!

Commission – Tsunayoshi Sawada (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!)

This is the second commission for *maricelaR* on DA, who has been very patient with all the delays.  She is the third person who got really involved in making this plush by helping us looking for materials that she would like for her plushie.

This is Tsunayoshi Sawada from “Katekyo Hitman Reborn!” His outfit was simple but that hair and the shoes took me awhile to finish.  Although this is a commission and we do our best to follow the commissioner’s specification, we cannot help ourselves to get involve and add some of our own ideas… I had a last-minute decision to make his cloak/cape brooch of metal because the one I made of cardboard didn’t suit me.  So, it took me a lot of time to find something I could use to make it. I knew what I was looking for but I didn’t know the name to look for it. After looking literally at every single seller listed on the page I found these metal stamping blanks that look perfect for making the brooch and that came in the sizes I needed.

I always learned something new with each commission and this time I learned about these “metal stamping blanks” which by the way are becoming a new hobby.  There are so many cute designs to stamp on those blanks.

Commission – Hermann Saltza (Blassreiter)

We’ve been away for so long due to some personal problems and internet problems which made us fall behind on the pending commissions. Slowly but steady we are catching up and we hope to complete the commissions before X-mas.

Anyway, this is our first soft plushie made almost entirely of fleece.  Also it is the first plushie made with felt hair which by the way was a pain to make since we didn’t know how to do it.

This was a commission for a DA member and it is Hermann Saltza from “Blassreiter.”

Busy as a bee!!

This little bee was a gift for a special commissioner on DeviantArt.  She has requested 4 of her original characters Jane, Anthony, Pauline, and Val from her story Dangerous Game.  We are so honored she decided to trust us to bring her babies to life.

He is now at his new home, I’m sure he will get tons of love from her and her family.  His official name is Rhyno, I think she chose a great name for him.


The pattern was so easy to follow.  She has some adorable patterns, you can be found her here:

At some point in our lives we all make mistakes, right?  Some of us wishes never to make one because it shakes our self-esteem and it can leave us with a broken spirit. But sooner or later we all make THEM.  This time it happened to me  . . . And as I’m writing this journal I’m trying to figure out how should I handle it.

I always fear this moment—the day I would make a mistake on one of the commissions and fail to meet the commissioner’s expectations. Recently, I made a stupid-stupid mistake and I’m feeling crappy about it.  It sucks to fail and make a mistake that could have been avoid if I only would have taken  the  time to pause and review all the information carefully. It is not as if don’t do it, to be honest, I’m a freak and I double-check everything most of the time to avoid this situation.  What happened this time?  The reference pictures submitted by the commissioner seem consistent in color, so, to me the colors  for the character was plain clear that I didn’t think it was necessary to check with the commissioner on that.

I’ve always hated to change my routine because I have this feeling that every time I change it something bad happens . . . Well, I think I’ve been proven right.  Usually I don’t work on projects with  a deadline because I know  making a plush can take longer that the time I set for each commission but this time I accepted because I thought the design wasn’t too complex to finish within the time frame. Next thing that I changed or better say I didn’t do was to send WIP pictures, the reason for that is that I didn’t have the time to spare for taking pictures [Believe it or not taking pictures and replying to emails takes a lot of time]. What else . . .I always try to ask as many questions as possible to make sure I got everything right; this time I foolishly thought I got everything right since there wasn’t many details to consider.  The only thing I did as before is to gather some more info on the internet for the character but apparently the information I got was the wrong one.  At the end I got the wrong color for the hair . . . One of the most important parts of the character!

I’ve been feeling crappy for this mistake . . . I wish I could bury myself and forget about it  but that would be the easy way out.  I have high expectations for myself and pride hurt when I make a mistake.  However, I would like to take a different approach and instead of beating myself up, drowning into a pool of self-pity or looking for excuses I just would like to acknowledge my mistake, learn from it and look for a solution.

My biggest challenge is to acknowledge the mistake and accept the fact that I fail to meet the expectations.  It sucks big time but it is what it is.  I don’t know how this is going to affect me and how it is going to affect the way other commissioners see us but whatever comes out of this  I’ll try to take it the best way I can.

I decided to write down all these feelings, so, I can release them and move on.  I know this might not be the only time I’ll make a mistake; in fact,  this might be one of many since I’m not perfect but I’m hoping that the next time I make a mistake to have a different attitude toward the situation and deal with it in a better way than today.-


Here is the little fellow:

Commission – Pauline and Val (Dangerous Game)

This is the second part of an ongoing commission for “Bleuberry109” on DA, they are her original characters Pauline and Val from her story “Dangerous Game.”

This was the first time making sneakers and it wasn’t as easy as I thought.  The pattern still needs some adjustments and I need to find better material for next time. [It is so hard to find small eyelets and shoelaces . . . so, I’ll have to keep looking…]


And this is Val
