Commission hiatus! Will reopen in January after the holidays!
I will have approximately 4-6 slots available every 2-3 weeks depending on the complexity of commissions. If your request was not accepted right away, wait until I reopen. Updated order statuses will be listed on my page in the section below. Please allow 3-4 weeks for shipment (account for fabric ordering, sewing, and shipping time). Delays will be rare (most for emergencies or vacations), but if there will be delays with work or shipment for any reason, I will alert you promptly. I cannot promise to meet deadlines, but I will take a little time as possible to complete an order.
I work Monday-Friday on commission work. I take weekends off as well as holidays and special events (anniversaries, birthday, etc).
Full payment is required before I start on your commission. Paypal only!If payment is not received promptly, your slot will be dropped.
All prices are USD and do not include shipping (see shipping prices below).

Shipping: I ship through USPS priority. If you want faster shipping, it will cost extra. Small plushies are $7, medium plushies are $10, and large depends on the size (ranges from $15-$20). Note me for shipping outside of the US.
Disclaimer: Once a plush has been shipped, it is no longer my responsibility and I will not be held accountable for lost or damaged items. Insurance can be purchased with additional costs. No refunds, no points instead of payment, and no trading at this time.
NOTE ME FOR ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE
This is a list of commissions and/or personal projects I am currently working on! I do not always go by order of this list; I will typically complete the easier projects first and then continue on to finish the larger, more complicated projects afterwards.
This is Gilda’s voice actress, so Gilda herself approves of the new plush! Big thanks to my friend who tweeted her my photo!
Hello there! My name is Megg and I work at home full time as a seamstress and cartoonist. My passion for creating and growing as an artist has allowed me to work for myself. I've been obsessed with plushies since I was young and over the last few years, I've taught myself how to create my own! I generally make plushies and draw fanart as my main source of commission work, occasionally I'll make sculptures and even cosplay accessories.
Please refer to the FAQ for any questions you may have. I am frequently open for commission work, so if at any time my commissions are on hold, check back frequently for an opening. Thank you!
Q: Do you take commissions? What are your prices?
A: Yes, I try to take commissions as often as possible. Prices and further details are listed on the left of my page in the "Commissions" box.
Q: What machine do you use? What fabric?
A: I currently use a Brother SE400 for embroidery and a Brother XL-2600 for sewing. Previously, I used primarily fleece, but I am now strictly using minky fabric on my commission work. I still have plenty of scrap fleece that I may use for personal projects.
Q: Do you make your own patterns? How do you do it?
A: Yes, I make all of my own patterns unless stated otherwise. Making patterns can be difficult, but it's all a matter of trial and error. I learned through practicing with free patterns online, studying how other plushies are made, and understanding what techniques can be used for different shapes.
Q: Will you share or sell your patterns?
A: No I will not. I work on my own patterns for my personal use.
Q: Why are your plushies so expensive?
A: When you commission an artist to make a plush, you have to understand all the materials that go into making it; fabric, thread, embroidery supplies, stuffing, etc. Also take into account that each plush takes nearly a full work day (9am-5pm) to complete. You also have to keep in mind that in my case, this is my primary source of income! I work full time as a seamstress and artist, so any commission money I make is the only money I have! I have spent countless hours developing my skills as an artist; if you want quality, you have to be able to pay for it! As far as cost estimates are concerned, I'd like to quote Makeshiftwings:
"Here's a controversial topic. Material cost is a big factor. I use minky fabric which runs $14 a yard. Embroidery supplies are VERY expensive (one spool of thread is $5.50!). If you take out material costs, and Ebay/Paypal fees which are 14% of the total, what's left is labor fee. If I sell a plush for $60, take $20 out for material/fees, and if a plush takes me 10 hours to make, that's $4 an hour. That's less than minimum wage. No one would work for that.
A huge thing to keep in mind is that this is custom made by one person. Mass produced toys are so cheap because they are mass produced. One person doesn't work on them and actually take the time to make sure they look good/accurate. I mean, have you SEEN the official Twilight plush? Can you see why it's only $20 something dollars? It's not show accurate, they use cheap materials, it's poorly designed, and it's poorly sewn. On top of that, skilled labor is not equal to minimum wage labor.
There are cheaper pony plush options out there. Trust me. If you search, you will find them. But keep in mind, unless you get lucky, you will get what you pay for."
If you have any further questions, feel free to note me!
