My Bio

Are you searching for truth?

My about page:




I no longer take commissions, generally speaking.

Notes about my plushies:

-Mares are ~13.5" (~34.3 cm) tall from hoof bottom to top of head (excluding mane, etc).

-Fillies are ~11" (~28 cm) tall from hoof bottom to top of head (excluding mane, etc).

-I draft all my own patterns with Photoshop/paper towels and make embroidery files with SophieSew.

-I don’t share my patterns or embroidery files with anyone, but I do have tutorials for SophieSew and offer advice when I can, but try to figure things out on your own if you’re really interested. Bear in mind that no one told me how to do this, but the information was available. I have made some patterns available via Etsy.

-My plushies are made with minky fabric. Accessories may be either minky or ultra cuddle.

-Stuffed medium-firm

-I typically make two passes of hand sewing for manes and tails and three for non-swiveling heads for better durability. I have had experience with things coming undone on some pony plushies I’ve bought. It also happened to my earlier Bon Bon right before I shipped her, at which point I declared “that is unacceptable!” So I try to prevent that.

-Smoke free home!

And here’s some old-school DA information that I just left here:

Happy Birthday!


I started experimenting with vacuum fluorescent displays after a while... and also built my very first H-bridge to run the filament. Still need to get a few more parts in the mail before it is finished...

Looking forward to seeing it!

I admit, having never used them, didn't realize the filament had to alternate current.

Still need a higher voltage boost converter to chain with the other, as the display is quite dim for now.

So, I found a video highlighting a DUMMY FAST vane display counter...

Makes me wonder... what is the speed limit on these?

Well, one thing for sure, the smaller they are, the faster they'll move. :nod: But then, a segment constantly changing direction in the midst of moving in the opposite direction doesn't really make it any more legible then an LED display segment flickering on and off. ^_^
