Commissioned plushies status

Journal Entry: Wed Apr 1, 2015, 4:15 PM

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

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.

I'm very excited to post the three commissioned plushies that will be finished this weekend! Maybe four if I can push myself to sew an extra hour and if I don't receive too many Etsy orders before then. C:

I'll be honest, I haven't had much time to sew or do any crafting for that matter lately. Working full time (8 hours a day minimal, 5 days a week) can be tough even though I'm very grateful to be there and for the responsiblity placed onto me. The work I do needs absolute concentration (I work with medicine for patients all day) and because of this I often don't have the will-power to put my mind to more work at home afterwards. ('cause yes, working on commissions and sewing takes a lot of concentration as well and is considered work in my book).
In short, commissions are coming along. I just need to find the time to work on them. It's currently a little too late to post and update a complete commission status list but I will do that this (Easter) weekend as well.

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. I've been doing commissions for people many years now 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

What color eyes would you choose? (VOTING CLOSED Thanks everyone!)

I would like (if you are taking) to go into commissions with you for a plush. The character would be Toboe from Wolf's Rain. I am still only considering this, and you don't even have to accept if you don't want to.

PS: Your work is AMAZING! :D ;D

Just wanted to let you know that my lovely blossom kitsune arrived safe and sound!

UFHG I LOVE HER. She's hereby assimilated into my family of foxes :D

I'm gonna make her a tiny cherry blossom bandana, kinda like what the Inari fox statues in Japan wear. UGH SO CUTE I CAN'T STAND IT

So I'm wondering, with your new policy on existing characters, what's your policy on customs (characters with accessories, or alternate designs/parts, etc.), since they're essentially "half-OC"? Y'know, like how some people want Pokemon with scarves and hats and things.

(Totally not trying to find a loophole or anything. ;) )

The main reason I go by this policy as of now is to try and reduce the quantity of repetitive orders. This also includes  slight alterations of an existing character. For instance, someone asked me if I could make an Amaterasu plush with blue markings instead of red. This is pretty much the same thing so I can't accept it.

Making a Pokemon plush with a cloth piece of other accessory would still require me to make that same pokemon plush so unfortunately this also falls under this policy.

Eh, that's understandable. It's just that I came up with a lot of ideas and reference material that I'd rather not go to waste. I could send it to you if you don't mind having a look.
