Commission progress! 14-09

Journal Entry: Sun Sep 14, 2014, 2:14 AM

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.

With very little distractions happening, I've been able to make a lot of progress on all plush commissions still standing! yay. I know it's been a really long time for some of you but as i've said many times before; with only two hands and very little spare time, I can only do so much. But I promise that some finished plushies will pop up coming week and the ones following! :la:

One reason for this delay is because I found it is ridiculously difficult to find some quality long pile black faux fur! Really, no kidding! A lot of plushies that are on the list require quality black faux fur and i've looked EVERYWHERE (keeping reasonable import conditions in mind) to find a fur that doesn't feel or look like the cheap coarse shaggy stuff you'll get most of the time. The kind of fur that becomes a complete mess of fibers once you run a comb through it. I refuse to use such for commissions or any plush I made for that matter.

But thankfully, now that I finally have some decent long black fur (after waiting for it for over three months to arrive *sigh*) I can FINALLY finish the plushies that require that exact material. I just wanted to clear that up. 

I usually save my weekends for plushing but since my boss decided to push SIX days of work on me this week, I only have the remainder of Sunday to get something done, which isn't much. Fortunately I have a day off next week to compensate and I plan on making really good use of that free time! 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

What application method do you prefer for patches/badges?

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~

A removable mask would be possible if I made it with something hard and cover it wth fabric afterwards to regain the softness for a plush. As for tails. That's probably the hardest part with tailed fox plushies. Cramming so many tails in a tiny space without making it look weird.

Hello there dear! I was just wondering, as I was looking around deviantart for a bit, if you've ever thought about making a Toothless plush? Because if I ever got the money for it, I would love to commission him from you, seeing as I absolutely adore the plushies you make :) Though it'd be quite a complex pattern and everything right? I might have to save up for quite a bit ;) Thanks in advance~ ^^

Hi ^^
I've been getting a lot toothless request lately. I haven considered making him or at least the regular night fury. Now that i'll propbably be a dealer at a convention next year I want to make a toothless version of my mini magnet plush pattern.
