Hello everybody! I'm sorry I haven't been very active since the start of the year, but this semester was very
hard on me emotionally and stress-wise too, but I've been doing a bit better now that exams are over.
This is just an update with my plan for the next little while, and a list for my commissioners just to keep them up to date
First off! Go check out my new craft blog on tumblr
! I'd appreciate any new followers, so thanks in advance!Schedule for the next few weeks:
-Finish knitting my sweater for my John Watson cosplay. Comiccon is in 2 weekends, so I'm focused on that for the next few weeks.
-Set up my new sewing machine and learn how to use it. If there's anything I can do with it to save time with my plushies, I might use it to do a few of the seams on the flat parts. Hopefully it will help cut down on the 10+ hours I spend on every single plush.
-Finish any outstanding commissions. I'll get through all I already have, and I don't think I'll take any new ones for a while, to give myself a break so I can work on personal projects and my Akihito cosplay for Otakuthon.
-Create a plush-making tutorial (probably while I work on commissions, to get some pics), which will have buttloads of info and any tips and tricks I can think of. I'll be selling it on etsy and it will include a version of my base template, so I think Izadork
that should answer your question!
-Create tutorials and patterns for some of the dolls I've already made (probably also done during commissions) to be sold on etsy, to go with my base tutorial, in case people don't feel like creating the patterns themselves
-Make general stock so I actually have stuff to sell in my etsy shop (pokeballs, 3DS cases, bracelets, etc.) I will probably only ever sell completed plush dolls on a commission basis.
-Work on personal projects (probably some dolls from Free! and attack on titan) as well as my Akihito cosplay (I'm knitting his green vest).Commission List:
-Sherlock and John for defokoFunfan01
: the dolls themselves are finished, and I managed to find the fabric I wanted to make the patches on John's coat, which is the only thing that's left! I'm sorry this has taken so long, thanks for being super patient with me!
-OC for xAlyaHx
: please message me if you are still interested! I might need just a quick sketch from you to make sure I get the design right, especially for his clothes and his hair.
-Loki for AnotherStolenRelic
: please message me if you are still interested! I'll also need a screenshot of which outfit you want him in!
-Sollux for my friend Neko, and potentially some others from Facebook (Dirk for Becky, Dualscar for Danny
-if FionnatheHuman8 is still interested (can't find your account, did you delete it or change names?) please let me know
-9th, 10th, 11th and 12th Doctors for Claudia (over Facebook) if she's still interestedoh boy what have I gotten myself into...Please message me back ASAP!
I'll be contacting you when it's your turn, and if I don't get a reply soon enough I'll move on to the next on my list!Crafts feature:
