Update! Alfonso (Animal Crossing)

Its been a long time since I've updated, I've been pretty hard at work making cosplay and costumes rather then plushes. If you're interested in seeing any of my costume work, check out my cosplay blog here.

I am still taking commissions if people are interested. Information on my commissions are here.

Its been a while since I had done a major project. I had worked on a commission a little while ago, of an Animal Crossing character named Alfonso. He was a fairly easy project to work on, the Animal Crossing designs are simple but very cute. He had a few spots on him, which were all hand stitched on so it would look more seamless. That was probably the most time consuming part of this piece, because after everything was hand stitched on, the rest came together rather quickly. The shirt was made a separate piece and stitched on top, so it looked like he was actually wearing a shirt. One detail you can't see very well is the tail behind him, which also has a spot hand stitched onto it. It was a very cute and easy project, something that helped me get back into the swing of things.

Puppycat (Bee and Puppycat)

I got a commission for Puppycat from Bee and Puppycat. The cat is such a big, cute shape, even with its frowning face. I was pretty excited to work on it and make a round cute cat.

All of the shapes were really basic. A round head, round body and small legs. The legs really doesn't support it as much as the body itself holds it up. The legs really act more as decoration rather then actual support like most of the other limbs I make for my plushes.

His facial details are hand sewn on, the eyes just fleece, so I could replicate his expression. The mouth is embroidered on to create the angry pout it has.

The collar around it neck is just fleece. I made a round shape to replicate the bell that it has around its neck and attached it to the neck. The "collar" doesn't fully wrap around his head, but I wanted to replicate how it looked in the reference.

Hey there everyone! It's been a while since I've updated, but I wanted to share a few things I've worked on since my absence. I've made a few plushes here and there, so it's just easier to compile them all into one post.

Monomi (Dangan Ronpa 2)

Monomi was so cute, unlike her Monobear counterpart, I just had to make her! For the patterns I basically used the same base and setup as Monobear. The only real difference is the ears and the details on her face. The bunny ears stay up easily after being stuffed and stitched on. The bow on her head is made from fleece, making it nice and full looking. The details on her face are hand stitched on with an invisible stitch, so it looks like it just sits on her face. The detail on her stomach is stitched on with my machine. Overall I'm happy with how she turned out! I'm hoping in the future I can make one of her outfits, either her diaper or magical school uniform.

Scribbles (Conventional Wisdom Web Comic Mascot)

This is the first time I made an original character, and the design was well done and cute I just had to! This is the mascot character for the webcomic Conventional Wisdom. All of his facial details, including the small tuft of hair on his head. The tuft of hair was just invisible stitched on, so it could stand up easily. His belt and boots are done with fleece. The belt is stitched on from the back, so it can be shifted and moved around if the customer wanted.

Overall it was a really simple plush but I was excited to make it!

Monobear (Dangan Ronpa)

I had been following the Lets Play for Dangan Ronpa, which is a really amazing game, and I just had to make the evil little mascot Monobear.

His basic shape was rather easy, since his shape is a basic teddybear shape (my second teddybear actually). It was really a matter of piecing everything together and making sure the black and white parts of his body met up correctly.


The hardest part of him was really more tedious. The details on his body were all hand sewn on, the eyes, mouth, even the stomach. His body had this thick line looking effect that I wanted to recreate, so I layered fabric to create the line, as well as keep the same colored fabric from blending in with each other.

The little detail on the stomach is sew on, so he could look like he had the bellybutton. There isn't a whole lot to say about the shape and body, its very simple, allowing all the little details to stand out for him. I plan on doing a DR cosplay eventually, so now I have a little prop for myself!

Shmee (Sqee)

It's been a while since I posted! I figure I should probably pay more attention and update a bit more. I haven't been working on as many commissions as I used to, just not enough time now that I'm working full time. But I managed to squeeze in a rather easy one in-between everything.


With all the plushes that I've made, this is the first one that's like a teddy-bear, or the closest to it. The shape was very basic, just a round head and body. He's shaped similar to a bear but he's very stylized. I didn't really have to worry about making a muzzle or any sort of super detail on his face and body.

The most detail I had to worry about was the large white looking stitches. The lines in the drawing looked a little too thick to be something I could use just thread for, so I used fleece. I took a little bit of glue and stuck it on, so they fleece would stay attached. The glue worked well on the fabric, though I probably wouldn't recommend machine washing him.

Over all he was very simple and a nice and easy project to work on!

Tran (IIDX)

For Otakon we have a IIDX panel and we wanted to make the panel a bit more interactive. We want to give something out as a prize, so I made a little Tran to give away.


Her shape was really basic so it really wasn't difficult to pattern. This is actually my first humanoid type plush, so I was happy it was something rather simple to make. She didn't really have any facial features, other then her eyes which were appliqued on.

The hair detail sticks out a bit so it could fit with the drawing so it would wrap around her face. The dress was actually sewn separately and then added onto her, so it could fit a bit better with what the reference was. The bottom of her feet have the little black to match with the platform detail.

There's not much else to say about her, since she's a really simple plush. We don't know the panel schedule yet but once we do I'll make sure to post it here so everyone can check it out!

Lil Seb (Homestuck)


I got into Homestuck fairly late in the game. The story had really come along and I had a lot to catch up on. So in my free time after work I would read and catch up, and it was really awesome. I'm really into the comic and plan to cosplay Jane for Otakon. Since I went with her default outfit, I wanted a little prop to carry around. Ever since I saw Lil' Seb I feel in love and thought he be perfect to carry around with me while I explore Baltimore.


His design was really rather basic so I didn't have a hard time creating the shape. The real time consuming part was doing the little stitching detail along his arms, legs and ears. The little hat on him was hand stitch and then stitched onto his chest with a small invisible stitch. Everything is made out of fleece. I tend to prefer fleece for robots since they don't have the fuzzy look most animal type creatures would have and its still super soft.

The glasses are made from a small sheet of plastic and orange velum paper. The velum sits behind the plastic so the glasses could still have the sort of shine to it that his glasses have in the comic. Its attached to the face with a single stitch on the center of his face.

I decided against going with the little grommets on his face and body because I thought it might take away from the plush and hide it, and on the sprite you don't see them. Either way I'm pleased with how he turned out. I hope to see other Homestuck fans at Otakon!
