Commissions are currently closed

Trades are closed for the time being, but hopefully I'll have time for more in a few months.

If you are considering commissioning an OC from me in the future, please keep in mind the points from Nazegoreng's guide to making an OC plush friendly: fav.me/d7awhun

My patterns are not available for sale or for free, though I'm happy to give sewing advice where I can. If you are looking for a pony pattern to make your own plush there are a couple great ones available from other artists!

:iconvalleyviolet: has some patterns for sale here: www.etsy.com/shop/valleyviolet… including a standard mare, stallion, and filly!

:iconmunchforlunch: sells a cute pattern too along with a selection of different mane and tail patterns! www.etsy.com/listing/156057001…

:icondolphinwing: has several patterns here: www.etsy.com/shop/dolphinwing?… including a standard mare pattern, mane patterns for the mane six, and her own sitting pony pattern.

:iconvoodoo-tiki: has a cute free pattern available with a tutorial.

New Machine, Future Commissions

Journal Entry: Sat Aug 16, 2014, 4:18 PM


I think my sewing machine is on its last legs. It can definitely be repaired, but I've been thinking about getting a new sewing machine for ages anyway so I think the time has come. My faithful 60 year old mint green machine will go into retirement and just be used as a backup and I will buy a new machine! I have my eye on a few refurbished Berninas on ebay. I'm crossing my fingers that the prices stay low.

Even if the price stays relatively low, it will still be a large purchase and I haven't been making a lot of money this Summer. As such, I will probably open two commissions slots to help pay off the machine once I have it in my possession. The auctions will end mid week next week, so if I do win one we're looking at maybe a week and a half from now for commission openings. If I don't win one of these auctions then it might be longer, but I am still hoping to find a new machine within the next month.

Please see my previous journal for commission information:

Commissions Info!Here is my commission information and base price list:
Standard Stallion or Mare Ponies:
With one mane color: $325
With 2-3 mane colors: $350
With more than 3 mane colors: $375
Fillies with cutie marks:
With one mane color: $300
With 2-3 mane colors: $325
With more than 3 mane colors: $350
Fillies with blank flanks:
With one mane color: $250
With 2-3 mane colors: $275
With 3 or more mane colors: $300

Shipping prices for ponies will vary by location but will probably be between $10 and $20 for US residents and between  $40 and $50 for international buyers.  Please feel free to contact me for a shipping quote.
Commissions will not be limited to mane six ponies, but they will be limited to standard mare, stallion, and filly ponies.  Mares are about 13 inches tall, stallions are about 15 inches, and fillies are about 9 inches.   Standard pegasus, unicorn, and earth pony mares will be available in a normal standing position or in a sitting Lyra position.  If


I'll post more information once I am sure that I'll have a new machine. I just wanted to give people a heads up!

I will also try to open commissions more regularly this year. I'll have a new machine and I have a new craft room since we just finished moving to a larger apartment, which will definitely help with my sewing efficiency! I do also want to try pre-making some things to sell and making some non-pony things. Right now I'm lacking in motivation to sew because my sewing machine is being finicky and annoying, but a new machine will help immensely!

If you have any questions about commissions that aren't answered in that journal feel free to comment! If you would like a price quote for something before deciding if you want to request a commission when they open, please send me a note!

Hey! I remember you saying you were looking for a color that would work for Apple Rose - that kind of peachy skin tone? I just ordered some Coral from Minky Baby Fabric and it looks pretty much exactly that color to me.
