So I get a lot of questions about my sewing so I thought I would throw together some of the most frequently asked questions about how I make my products look so clean. We’ll take it like a Q&A that way it’s not too complex.
Q: I can’t make mine look like yours! What do you do to make them like that?
A: Planning and time spent making them.
Before you start any project it’s really important to take some time to plan ahead. Make sure you have your pattern and materials ready before you start. This just makes everything much easier. Keeping focus really helps in the long run even if, at the time, it doesn’t seem important.
Also, taking your time really helps. If you are doing them for fun just do exactly that. Relax and have fun making them. If you want to give them as a gift, make sure you have plenty of time to complete them as needed. Just like any other art form the time you spend on the item will show in your wo

Roleplayers make up a large part of the community here on deviantArt. It's an ever-growing community, and new members join it every day. Thirsty for adventure, these new members leap into the large world of roleplay, blissfully simplistic, filled with hopes and anticipations. They expect a rich roleplay experience full of excitement, and they want it to be delivered!
New members, however, also means less experience, and less experience means less knowledge. That knowledge which new roleplayers need to acquire may be earned in the long run, by partaking in several satisfying and unsatisfying roleplays and learning through trial and error what is right and what is wrong to include in one. I have taken that path, and I can say that it's a hard place. Some people, even after several years, haven't even made as much progress as would have been expected; they just can't get the hang of it. I have decided to let anyone who so desires take an alternate path, a sh

As promised I’m continuing to give some tips as to how I do my plush works. This time we are covering the basic process I use for 2-D plush making. It’s a quick guide to my process from beginning to end. Let’s jump into it.
Q: I want to make a plush from a drawing but where do I start with the pattern?
A: Simplify, stylize, and sketch.
I always start with a completed drawing of what I want the item to look like. I’ll break it into pattern pieces from that but let’s focus first on the drawing.
I like to minimize my work but still keep the piece looking just how I want it to. Take a moment to consider how many different colors you would need then the order of the layers. Most of my plush work has anywhere from just one to four layers per side. The more layers and colors the longer the piece will take. Play with the image a little and stylize it so there are still enough details without overwhelming yourself. It’s also a g

For your information....
I realised that some people don’t know enough about blood and bone marrowdonations, so I’m going to write everything I know to dispel any myths.
Firstly, blood donation. And I don’t care if you’re gay. Do you think you have some STI or STD just because you’re gay? Do you think there’s a massive difference between anal sex with a woman and anal sex with a man? People can lie. I would. They check all blood anyway, and if you’re clean you shouldn’t have a problem. You make a choice between helping someone and not helping someone. I’m sure they’d take your blood whether you’re gay or straight…. Or does a gay man have some kind of toxic, disease infested blood? Is it green? Is it yellow? No, it’s not, so stop being a massive a

Shaving Faux fur:
For Faux fur plushie makers, You should invest in a WAHl Kennel Pro, I bought two Andis clippers, both gave out after trimming faux fur for a few min. Also Make sure to keep your Clippers oiled and cleaned after using.
I recommend trim the Faux fur first before cutting out the pattern, so if you do cut too deep you can always make a new piece to replace it before sewing your plush together. Make sure to trim with the fur pile not against it, or you will just cut all the fur off, you want to trim it not make it bald.
Keep in mind being a plush artist gets very pricey, with Faux fur some fur colors are rare and you will some
