Newprices by PinkuArt

I am going to let you have a glimpse of the plushmaking- and small business owner-life! I hope that I have explained everything well enough. :)

Sewing plushies is something I have been doing for a long time, and also as a full-time job for about a year now. Even after all this time, I  still have to improve and learn new things in all areas! Today’s journal is about my experiences with prices for custom plush orders.

There are new prices for plush commissions from now on!

I had used the previous prices for many plushies, and noticed time and time again that they did not match up with the time and effort I put into most of them.

The main reason for this is the time it takes to complete a plush pattern. No matter whether the final plush is going to be 20cm or 50cm tall, the pattern still takes the same amount of effort.

Especially after I had finished the Marshadow plush, it was clear that something needed to be changed. Marshadows’ pattern alone took around 36 hours to make! And at that point, the actual plush was not even started yet.

Now if you look at it from a financial perspective, which I have to do in order to make a living and to be able to continue making plushies full-time:


If I was paid in US minimum wage (7.25 USD per hour according to google), 36 hours would already amount to 261 dollars. And this is not where it ends, the plush took a total of 68.32 hours to complete!

The artworks I create are unique and nobody else can make them exactly like I do, since every artist has their own style. Work like this is definitely not worth minimum wage or less. On top of that: I do not live in the US! The average living cost in Sweden and also buying materials for plushmaking are much higher. And on top of the top: This specific plush took about half a month to make, meaning I can make a maximum of two plushies like this each month. With the old prices, that would not even cover rent and food expenses.


Taking all of this into account, I arrived at the conclusion that I have to raise the prices in order to be able to make ends meet.

The prices for plushies I already have a pattern for remain the same. I am going to work on adding more “Your character here” commission options after the april orders are complete!

Also, I have added the new price category “advanced” to differentiate better between complexity levels. Any price quotes for new plushies you have received before this update are not valid for the next round of commissions.  You can find the new prices and everything worth knowing about how custom plush orders work here: www.pinkuart.com/plush-commiss… :heart:

In all honesty, the new prices are still not completely adequate. I will keep them for now as a test to see how close they can be to compensating for the effort that is in each plush, and might make changes again once I know better.


No matter which plush I am making, I always aim to put the maximum effort into making it turn out exactly the way the new owner imagined it to be - and that has to be reflected in the prices to make it possible. Thank you for understanding!  :heart:

So many commissions, over 20 of them! Wow, that is overwhelmingly amazing. And especially amazing since I've had to stay away from taking plush commissions for the past two years! I'm so looking forward to sewing each one of them. <3 Thank you so much!

That being said, I am temporarily closing commissions! 

I have to figure out how taxes will change the prices in the future, and will be back as soon as that is solved.

Old price quotes are now not valid anymore. 

I'll be able to give price quotes again as soon as commissions reopen! They will approximately stay closed until all current orders are completed. :)

Upcoming plush giveaway, commissions and more!

Journal Entry: Sat Jun 25, 2016, 5:11 AM

Guess what: I finished school! I AM FREE! WOHOOOOOOO!! :love: :eager:

And that means: I can start sewing plushies full-time! And also finally get to move in with my beloved Alex. <3 (www.twitch.tv/xanttustream , :iconflutteralex:)

Freedom! by PinkuArt

Yes, I am going to move from Austria to Sweden! I am so incredibly happy and lucky to have such a loving and supportive partner, family and friends, and now that school is out of the way I will finally get to live my life the way I want to. We have so many plans for the future! Hnnn <3

First off, I will set up a new website where you'll be able to find all information about plushie commissions, us and more :) And that means... we are preparing for plushie commissions to open! After being officially closed for two years, I will finally be able to accept commissions again. Haha, it was so hard for me to constantly have to say no to requests due to lack of free time. x3 To everyone who patiently waited with me, thank you so much :) It's almost time! Hype! I am so looking forward to making peoples' creative designs come to life again <3

Commissions will be OPEN around late july, even earlier than expected! We'll post an exact date soon. :)

I am going to teach Alex how to make plushies, and he will help me out with sewing a bit in the future~ We will get to work on a big project that I've been wanting to do for years: A book about the basics of plushmaking! We get so many questions from people who want to get started with making their own plushies, and the book will be the perfect tool for beginners looking for help – including basic patterns and tutorials. Yay!

Alex will be streaming Overwatch on Twitch when he has time :) Due to work, stream time is very limited for now, but that will change in the future. We will stream together too! Once we have a stream schedule there will be a partner stream day every week. <3

To celebrate that we finally get to fulfill so many dreams, we will have a plush giveaway :D More details are to come, you will be able to participate through many pages like Facebook, Twitch, Instagram and more.

So, the plans for Pinku Art in the near future are:

  • Creating a new website

  • Moving to Sweden <3

  • Plushie giveaway

  • Opening commissions

  • Book about the basics of plushing

  • Streaming on Twitch 


In the picture you can see the current project I'm working on: a new and improved filly pattern. It will look even cuter than the last, and is optimized to take way less handsewing time. <3 The bottom picture is a preview of the website, it will be stylish and adorable~


But wait...there's more!
We want to create a Youtube-channel for stream highlights, daily adventures, tutorials and sharing our happiness with you :)

If you want to see updates about the move and other non-plush related news about us, feel free to follow our FB accounts Pinku Midori (www.facebook.com/pinkewe.cotto…) and Alexander Saarenpää (www.facebook.com/alexander.saa…) <3

Another big plan for the future: Having our own plush designs mass produced! But yeah, that will still take some time and saving up. I already prepared design ideas, hype x3

And for even further in the future (do you say that that way? xD): Mass produced clothing collections! I drew designs for that already too, haha <3 They will be very colorful and stylish <3


So yeah, so many plans! And so much happiness that comes with them. I am looking forward to every second of the days to come, and I could never find the words to describe how much I cherish that I get to spend them with the one I love.

Now our life can start. <3

We have many plans and will create art together in the future. We look forward to every minute of that! :love:

And we'll also stream together on Twitch --> www.twitch.tv/xanttustream , www.facebook.com/Xanttustream?…    and we are going to create a Youtube channel.

Large Vinyl Scratch auction and other plans

Journal Entry: Fri May 2, 2014, 1:20 AM
Hey :)
First off, there's less than a day left on lovely Vinyl's auction: www.ebay.com/itm/Vinyl-Scratch…
Laying Vinyl Scratch / DJ Pony plush by PinkuArt
She features a uique pattern and is quite tall :)  

During the easter holiday, I was able to work on more fillies for Galacon:
Only finished one so far is Applejack, the others are mostly headless horses :giggle: I won't be able to work on them further soon, there's lots of studying ahead. D: But that makes me look even more forward to the summer holidays. ;)
I'd also love to make an equestria girls Vinyl Scratch cosplay, but I cannot seem to find anybody who can make that kind of wig for me. In case you know anybody who could craft something like this and takes commissions, please tell me :) 

Another outfit I want to make is armor out of worbla, I already started cutting out pieces :) That one will get finished on time for the conventions in August. So many outfits, so few time to work on them whyyyy  I think I've fainted. 
The summer holidays are going to be full of hardcore sewing again La la la la
