PLEASE READ! Note system being wacky...

Journal Entry: Thu Oct 23, 2014, 1:54 AM


For commission inquiries and price quotes, pleased contact me at:

cyanfoxdesigns@gmail.com

As mentioned before I WON'T be accepting new plush commission until I've completed the whole current list. It would put too much pressure on me as my work load is already huge.

It seems that not all private notes that are sent to me are received, which is weird, but not unusual, as i've had that problem of dissapearing messages before.

Just to warn you guys; if you haven't received a response from me or it's still shown as unread within a week PLEASE send it again, because it's possible I didn't get it. I usually respond to private messages in 3-5 days at it's latest. It's NOT supposed to take longer than that.

First of all, thank you so much everyone for your purchases! :heart: Heart: I will ship out all Etsy orders soon! 6 sales in one evening!

Not only that but everything that got listed in my shop yesterday was gone the next day. (Don't worry guys, there will be more tealight foxes in 2015). I don't think that has happened to me before. Now I can buy some lovely Christmas presents for some special people. <3

So I was thinking, this calls for a little celebration c: Although I won't be making another Halloween plush this year, I'm thinking of making a special winter theme plushie. This will be another OOAK and will be presented a few weeks before Christmas so it can arrive in time to whoever purchases it. I will do my very best to finish a few more -premades that I still have to complete as well.


20% OFF HALLOWEEN SALE
On the 29th until 31th of October I will be holding a 20% OFF SALE in my shop. That means EVERYTHING, from patches to plushies that still roam around in my shop, can be purchased for a reduced price! Keep an eye out for it if you're interested! c:

This Give-away will be held on the same day sas the sale mentioned above. Anyone can enter and the winner will be chosen randomly! :D More to come about this soon...

Halloween Special 2014: Acid fox by goiku
Halloween Special 2014: Acid fox
Sorry, this plush is sold.

This plush was also created as an entry for the 
Trick or Treat Contest 2014 contest: 


This little fox was held captive as an experiment in a secret lab and tested on. One day disaster struck killing everything living thing inside, except for a little black fox that was able to survive and escape after being exposed to a heavy dosis of radioactive waste/acid that was released during the incident.


Radioactive or not, this fox is looking for a warm home. c: She’s made with various soft faux furs and minky. The neon yellow and green is even brighter in person! It creates a REALLY strong contrast against the black. 
The cracks, gashes and other details are all machine-embroidered with high quality embroidery thread. The neon fur and thread DOESN'T glow in the dark but will react heavily to UV/blacklight because of the brightness (as shown in the last image) kind of creating the same effect. Her right eye DOES glow in the dark though! 

Measuring out all the embroidered parts was a true pain, but I'm glad it worked out :D


The plush is floppy, meaning it is softly stuffed and you can pose it any way you like. She m
easures 14,5 inches long including tail.

Nah, you didn't think I'd leave you guys in the dark completely? ;) I'm not that mean. But this really is the only WIP i'll be showing of this plush.  If it can be called that,seeing as this is just a bunch of embroidered parts I did some days ago haha. Tonight i'll find out if I got the measurements right.

It's almost that time of the year again! c: And although we personally don't officially celebrate Halloween n Holland I will contribute to the Holiday just like each previous year.  *Free Icon/Emote* Halloween Pusheen 


Halloween plush special 2014
Each year I offer a new Halloween-themed plush. And as usual it'll be a complex one that will take many hours to make. I'm not gonna spoil the surprise but this year's special will have some very bright color accents :D And it'll be a small floppy.


Etsy orders
As expected, the first Etsy orders for my Glow-in-the-dark skull and X-ray patches (which sell exceptionally well during this period for obvious reasons) are already flooding in. The problem is that I always run out thread for these fast because spools of 200 metres (especially the white one) don't last long and as a result I might not be able to ship out the patches in time for them to arrive on or before Halloween.

To prevent any of these delays and ship out orders fast, i've taken some preparations this year and looked around for a different brand of luminescent thread that's available in larger spools. And lo behold! 1000 metres of luminescent thread is on the way :D To save extra time I've already started to pre-make a variety of these patches, so these will already be ready to ship immediately. I wil also post a bunch of them here on DeviantArt.


20% off Sale
On the 29th until 31th of October I will be holding a 20% OFF SALE in my shop. That means EVERYTHING, from patches to plushies that might still roam around in my shop, can be purchased for a reduced price! Keep an eye out for it if you're interested! c:

Hi all!
My name is Moniek Zeilstra, a 25 year old hobbyist. I graduated for my paraveterinary education because I absolutely LOVE animals! I live in a small village in the Netherlands (Holland), located in Europe.

My passion is making stuffed animals, realistic or cartoony. I mostly create fursonas, realistic animals and mythical creatures but will try to do anything that fits my style though. Since 3 years ago I've been doing commissions for people and don't plan on quitting with that anytime soon.
My goal is to make detailed, high quality crafts for an affordable fee!

Beside sewing I also draw and sculpt at times. Basically I'm one for trying out things so more activities will probably added in the near future c:

Next to creativity I also enjoy anime/manga and japanese culture a lot and go to conventions in cosplay occasionally.

Thank you for taking a look at my gallery! And always feel free to follow my work :D
Interests

Which of these mythical animals as my next OOAK embroidery project?

I honestly can't say. I won't be opening commissions until all orders on my commission list are done. And there's quite a lot left to do.

The mask of the forest spirit intrigues me, could a removable one be made? Also, the Kuugen plush and the others like it have really big tails, is that the stuffing or the design, because I'm thinking that if you tried to make a 9-tailed version (or even just Hinode) you'd run out of space pretty fast? Thanks~
