------------------------------------
:star:HOW TO REQUEST A COMMISSION (when open):star:
If you would like a spot, send me a note (when commissions are open) including the following:
- What plush you would like (including any pre discussed details
- Reference image/s if it is an OC (written description is not enough)
- What size you would like it to be (small, medium or large) (Ponies come at standard sizes of 17" for mares, 19" for stallions and 11" for fillies and co


Q. What kind of plushes can you make
A. I can make almost any kind of plush, though humans are not something I am making at this time. I prefer to work between 10-25" in size, and can make almost any fantasy, animal or other creature.

If you are not sure if I can or will make something feel free to send me a note. There's no harm in asking.

Q. Can I trade with you?
A. While I would love to trade as much as possible, I simply don't have the time (or finances) to trade with everyone.

I will typically only trade with people that I have admired for a long time. Please be understanding that I cannot trade with everyone. I am more likely to trade with those who I contact myself, rather than through requests.

When trading for digital art, I typically ask for equal dollar value, digital art to plush. So if the plush I made cost $300, I would expect $300 worth of digital art in return, plus the value of postage if the trader does not want to cover that themselves.

Q. Can I critique your work? or Why don't you like critique?
A.Please understand that while you may have good intentions, I really do not like receiving critique on my work unless requested. For personal and practical reasons. I prefer to seek critique either in private from experienced artists or when I am actively editing my pattern (in which case I will post a journal inviting open critique).

Q. Can I buy or have your plush pattern/s?
A. No, I will not be sharing my plush patterns.

Q. How did you learn to plush/make patterns
A. I started out by doing ALLOT of research. I then learnt to pattern basic shapes, such as spheres etc. Once you can plush basic shapes, most plushes are just variations and combinations of these shapes. Practising with premade patterns is also a great way to learn, but practising making your own patterns is highly valuable.

Q. Can you teach me?
A. I am more than happy to answer a few questions or give advice, but unfortunately I don't have time to sit down and spend hours teaching someone. I highly suggest watching sewing tutorials on youtube as they will teach you a great deal.

Pre-digitised MLP embroidery set (for purchase)
by :iconethepony:
Updated MLP Eye Embroidery SetI just completed an update to my MLP Eye embroidery set.  If you purchased the set though Ecrater you should have just received an email with updated files.  If purchased though Etsy you can log into Etsy and download the updated set at no charge.
Besides the usual addition of more characters and sizes, (More than 500 total now!) the files are now provided in 4 formats: DAT, DST, JEF and PES.  This covers nearly every embroidery machine on the planet.


Q. What do you make your plushes out of?
A. I primarily use minky fabric. I usually purchase it from plushaddict.co.uk

Q. How do you do your eyes on your plushes?
A. I use a brother Innovis 750D embroidery machine, Madiera Rayon embroidery thread, and Bernina V6 embroidery software. For resin eyes I create my own moulds and cast them myself.

Q. What sewing machine do you use?
A. I use a Pfaff Ambition 1.0 and a brother NS30.

Q. What airbrush and paints do you use?
A. I use a dual action airbrush www.hobbytools.com.au/airbrush…
Pretty much any airbrush can do plush airbrushing. I would suggest purchasing a dual action one as you can control the flow.

I do not share information on the fabric paints and methods I use to airbrush, so please do not ask. I would suggest watching airbrushing tutorials, researching paints and doing tests on scrap fabric to find what works best for you.

Q. When will plush commissions open?
A. Commissions will open typically once I finish the current batch

Q. Why do your plushes cost so much?
A. Plushes are a luxury item. They are custom made from high quality materials, using quality machinery and are extremely labour intensive. All of this equates to a higher cost to plushes that are mass produced. These are art pieces, not toys. A plush can take 40+ hrs to make.

Q. But that is out of my price range..
I try to hold giveaways so everyone has a chance at owning one of my plushes. However, sewing is my sole income so I'm afraid I cannot lower my prices.

Q. Can you advertise _______ for me? Or can I advertise _______ for you in return for _____?
A. Most often the answer is no.

Q. Can I draw your OC/s?
A. Of course! I love it when people draw my OCs. Please make sure to send me a link when you are done. References: nazegoreng.deviantart.com/favo…

Q. Can I make you a gift? (ie sculpture, custom, plush etc)
A. I'd love that! But please understand that making a gift (a physical item) and expecting me to then pay for it is not ok. Neither is making something then asking me to trade for it when no trade has been agreed upon.

If you are going to want me to pay postage to send said gift please ask first as my finances can change.

Q. Can I reserve a commission place
A. Note me and we can discuss the possibility.

Q. Do you take payment plans?
A. Yes, but under certain conditions. Note me to discuss.

Q. Can we be friends?
A. Becoming friends is a natural process, so asking to be my friend won't make it so. Friendship happens over time, and cannot be requested or forced. Please understand that I'm a very busy person and noting me over and over again trying to force conversation can be uncomfortable.

Q. Do you come from a smoke/pet free home?
A. Neither I or anyone I live with smokes. I do however have pet cats and dogs. They are never allowed in my plush room but if you are severely allergic to an animal/animals I would suggest looking elsewhere just to be safe.

Q. I'm too nervous to note/talk to you
A. Please don't feel that way. I'm always happy to answer questions, so don't ever feel like you can't ask.

Q. Why does Cobalt (my ponysona) have mud on her hooves and leaves in her mane/tail?
A. Cobalt has always had anxiety about her white coat and gold mane that blend into the sun and clouds. She uses leaves and mud to cover up her coat so she wont feel invisible and/or exposed.



Q. Why did you start making plushes and how did you improve your skills?

A. I started out admiring other plushmakers (and not being able to afford them) and figured I could make my own if I applied myself. I had some experience in sculpting, painting and general craft so I already had a heads start.

I bought my equipment, researched like crazy and drafted my own patterns. Plushing for 2 years has given me allot of experience and practise. I always try to keep updating my patterns and incorporating new ideas and techniques into my work. Learning to make a tonne of my own patterns from scratch has also taught me a great deal.

In short:
- Research like mad (even once you are experienced)
- Practise
- Be passionate about improving
- Don't be satisfied with sub-par work
- If you are serious, invest in your machinery and tools

Cobalt Tangle Bio
Cobalt Tangle Ultimate Reference Guide by Centchi

SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE INFO


Mare, Pegasus, Creature wrangler.
Location: Horsetrailia
Coltfriend: Mean Streak

Backstory:
As a timid filly Cobalt took the brunt of several bullies in her cloud hometown. Over time the fillies made jokes that Cobalt was invisible to them, in order to totally ignore her. Making her believe her white coat, sky blue eyes and sunny gold mane blended her into the clouds and sky, Cobalt became an extremely anxious filly and believed that she was indeed at times invisible to others.

A particularly nasty storm cloud brewed over her schoolyard one day, and, in order to be seen against the dark clouds, Cobalt flew into the storm. Struck by lightning, Cobalt hurtled to the ground below, unconscious, crashing through trees into the sodden ground. Awakening, she saw herself covered in leaves and mud. Holding her hooves up to the now white clouds above, she saw that her white coat and golden mane no longer blended in, but stood out. She was no longer invisible.

Cobalt keeps herself covered with these leaves and mud to this day as a form of safety blanket, so she will never again feel invisible to others.

She now works as a creature wrangler, well suited to camouflage and with a vast knowledge of animal behaviour. Her no-nonsense nature allows her to deal with creature problems swiftly and efficiently. She works to protect ponies from wild creatures and creatures from ill natured ponies.

Personality traits:

Anxious, intelligent, obsessive, intellectually competitive, rarely silly, realist, to the point, arrogant, studious, stubborn, reactive, frequently takes on too much responsibility to prove herself.

Cutiemark:
Coiled serpent, gained from saving her first creature. Also represents the anxious and defensive part of her nature.

It's become something of both a desire yet a bucket list for me to commission you for a Celestia (whenever I have the finance cushion to that is). She's absolutely gorgeous (and my favorite of the princesses :)). I hope to commission you one of these days in the future. :D

I use to have a few custom plushies from other makers myself (Rainbow Dash, Cadance, Fluttershy, Trixie), but I needed some space back and get at least a little money back from being spent on them, so I had to sell them. When I made that decision, I also decided that I'd only seek an actual custom plush of high quality for a Princess Celestia and Discord, cuz I'm a nerd for those two (and for the sake of financial stability). :B

While it's on my mind I've always meant to ask, plush-wise - have you ever considered doing a Discord?
