Hello, my name is Tuesday.
I write and sew and play video games.
Palm Plush: 40 to 45 shipped
6-8 inch: 80 to 100 +shipping
10-12 inch: 100 to 120 +shipping
Bigger than 12: price to be discussed
Due to needing a car (the bus stop is about an hour walk from my house) I’m selling some plush that are looking for new homes! Send me a note if interested. I’ll be posting new plush when I get home :)
I am open to haggling.
First up is this awesome, good sized Volcarona (looking for around 80 plus shipping):
Next is this big size, two feet tall Raichu plush (won’t take offers under 100):
Palm Shiny Gyrados (looking for 30 plus shipping):
Palm Deoxys (looking for 30 plus shipping):
(sorry for FA links, I’m reposting from a journal there as I have an account on there to get some more original character commissions ^-^)
I’ve been dealing with car issues and today I finally got the news that my car can’t be fixed. It would cost more than the car is worth to fix it. Which means I have to used car shop and I really don’t have much money on me. I need a car to ship things and to get to my job. Now everyone that has a commission with me currently, I am blazing through them and you of course get yours first, no question there, but if anyone would like to commission me, please let me know. Everything I have will be finished before Christmas.
My commission prices are at the top of my tumblr and if you’d like to donate anything, even a dollar, my paypal email address is email@example.com and I never ask for handouts, but this would just help me be able to get any sort of new car. Please note me. If you donate anything, I’d be happy to do some doodles for you or something.
I’m sorry to make a post like this, but I’m just overwhelmed with this whole ordeal. Thank you and bless <3

the-riddler-babe said: Oh wow haha cant believe I didnt see that. I was on mobile. Thank you, but on the help I was wondering how you get started and what fabric do you recommend for beginners I've always started them but the never end up to my satisfaction and dont last long?
For beginners, fleece is a good way to start. It’s cheap, but still a quality material that can easily be found at your local craft shop or Walmart. Minky is more expensive and good quality minky usually has to be ordered online, so I’d hold off on that until you’re more comfortable with plush making.
I made horrible 2D plush when I first started because I had no idea what I was doing and no real internet access to view pre-existing patterns. I didn’t even know that was a thing back then. I used felt when I first started, just buying the quarter sheets with my allowance. All I knew was that I wanted plushies from windwaker and I wasn’t stopping until I had them!
That was my first plush. Look how horrid that is (though I love him). I used marker to draw on the felt, which showed through on the tan parts and I used a horible in and out stitch with bad spacing. I’m not sure how he isn’t falling apart like a good deal of my other firsts. But it was a first. It led to more awesome things!
I definitely recommend making sure your stitches are close together and not on the very edge of the fabric. Always cut out any patterns you make with seam allowance. And don’t be afraid to experiment. Fleece is sturdy and won’t fall apart in your hands like certain types of felt or other fabrics, so it’s a good hands on learning fabric for stitching, plush, all your needs. Plus people still use fleece for hats, details, dice bag lining, and other things, so even if you still have stores of it after you decide to move on to minky or velboa or what have you, it won’t be a waste.
Now one of the easiest shapes to make is the ball. All you need are four petals and boom. Ball. You can use your ball for heads, bodies, what have you. It’s a great beginning pattern to get the hang of how 2D shapes can be put together to make a 3D shape!
You can see it at use on this pokeball: http://i00.i.aliimg.com/wsphoto/v0/1752058032_1/Popularity-Anime-Pokemon-Pocket-font-b-Monsters-b-font-Red-with-font-b-Pattern-b-font.jpg
I also always suggest buying some goodwill plush (they’re extremely cheap) and cutting them up, seeing how they go together, experimenting, learning shapes, things like that.
Usually to get started on a plush myself, I draw out a vague shape on paper and then add more shapes to it to get a pattern together. If I have issues figuring out how to make a plush, I’ll do doodles of what I’m making in different poses to see what works. I normally start with the body first. I’m very horrible at explaining my process because my own process for making things is weird and disjointed. I normally have three or more plush I work on at a time so I can bounce from one to the other. My mind works in a weird way like that.
I am admittedly not the best teacher, but if you have any further questions, just let me know!
