Get to Know Your Plushsmith!






Hi! Welcome to Double Backstitch Arts! You can just call me Backstitch if you like.

I make... things. Lots of things. Plushies, cosplays, props, swords, art, many sorts of things. Most of you are probably here about the plushies though. I do what I love, and I really love to create stuff.

And it turns out, people dig getting stuff made for them. So here we are! More info can be found in my FAQ below. Any unanswered questions? Note me! I really do love to hear from you, and can always take a moment for a friendly chat.

Have a gander at the things in my gallery and whatnot, and thanks for dropping by!



Follow me up on the facebook thing! www.facebook.com/DoubleBacksti…

Also now on tumbly! doublebackstitcharts.tumblr.co…

And Furaffinity, the site slightly less for the faint of heart than deviantART o ,o www.furaffinity.net/user/doubl…

Questions that have been Asked Frequently, and answers to them.






Q: HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE FOR YOUR PONES?
A: Note me. I prefer to discuss prices privately. Also if you got a quote from me in 2013 or before, then you've likely got outdated rates so re-ask if you wish. Thank you.

Q: I noted you, but forgot to ask, are your prices negotiable?
A: Unfortunately, no. I used to be more flexible, but I just can't afford to do that anymore u ,u

Q: Frickin' commissions, how do they work?
A: I say I'm open when I'm taking new plushies on, I pick between four and six at a time, and then I close until I'm done with those. Pretty groovy, eh? :3

Q: "So does "COMMISSIONS CLOSED" mean I have to ask extra nicely...?" "I want a lifesize pony. Here's $15. Or better yet, it's my friend's birthday, can you make one for free?" "How do you do that thing you do that makes you different from everyone else, i.e. your rumpybutts or 3D lashes? I want to do it too." "Can I have your patterns pretty please?" "Do you take dA points?
A: No.

Q: So... Favorite soda? Favorite music? Favorite artist? Favorite show? Favorite movie? Favorite game? Favorite pony?
A: Dr. Pepper, Queen but really anything especially 80's, Nazegoreng, either G1 Transformers or G4 MLP, Star Wars: A New Hope, Duke Nukem 3D (was Final Fantasy VII), and the Great and Powerful Trixie.

Q: Can I draw your OCs or draw my pony with him/her?
A: Yes please! Use them how you like, but give credit where credit is due and let me know, k? I love seeing art of my ponies :3

Q: Ok... So do you do more than plushies?
A: Yup! I draw, I sculpt a little, I make cosplay parts (think wings, goggles, armor bits), I do a little of a lot. Curious if I'm the person to do what need be done? Don't be afraid to ask ^ ,^


Your question not here? It could be, if you ask enough! Note me anything you've got that's not covered here and I'll be glad to answer it.

I've got a few side-projects I'd like to work on if I ever get the time to. Which sounds most exciting?

Well I've talked with my judges, and I've thought hard on the submissions myself, and the winner is...
Orion487 with his story "Day Off"! fav.me/d7w0mvp
Reason for selection: The author dedicated himself to writing the characters as true to their proper selves as their owners (myself and Wilshirewolf) could have. Over a month and a half he talked with me on several occasions, asking many questions and really digging into what makes the relationship between Promise and Trick work. I could feel he was passionate about making a story that would be something Trick and I would enjoy, and in doing so he made the most perfect story of the two ponies I've ever read. It made both me and Trick smile and marvel at how in-character our ponies were, as if we'd been the ones writing them. For a short story, it was beautiful and a product of proper passion. Orion, you win the 1:4 scale plushie of your choosing. Thank you so much for entering my contest.

Now that the grand prize has been given out, I've got three first-place prizes to award: Pictures draw'd by me! ...Yes I know most the art entries in the contest were of a higher caliber than what I'm capable of. But I'm still gonna show my appreciation to the passionate, dang it! So for our drawring winners we have...

"Precious Memories" by TakShadoWing fav.me/d7ttqr0
This piece is brilliantly done traditionally, and demonstrates an excellent understanding of the relationship between Double Backstitch and Latent Promise. The image doesn't stand alone, as it is accompanied by a story that acts as an excerpt from Backstitch's early life. It's one thing to see a reference and draw a pony, but it's another entirely to care enough to understand that pony, to ask questions, and to put time and effort into applying that understanding and information. This work is beautiful, truly the work of not only talent but passion. Thank you.

"Double Backstitch" by Mellifluence24 soundcloud.com/sikm824/double-…
Yes, that's a soundcloud link. This is a rap song. Its title is simple, but the lyrics cover much. The artist asked a lot of questions, and put a lot of work into creating a set of flowing words that describe my pony in the most charming way possible. The subject matter moves from carefree to serious and back again fluidly, not simply focusing on one aspect of my pony, but her as a whole. All I can say is thanks, and Mellifluence, you can call her Dubby anytime ^ ,^

"Nice to Meet You" by mr-tiaa fav.me/d7vc8c7
This piece was another that really amazed me. It wasn't that it's very finely drawn, so much as the moment in time it's showing. Something that represents a lot of things to me personally, but also something in the characters' lives that means a lot. The image is a still from a memory with a great mix of emotions. The characters are portrayed excellently, and also the thing that amazed me the most is how perfectly my Double Backstitch was drawn. It's very much the her that I had in my mind, I just wasn't able to draw her like I saw her. It's the undersanding of the characters and their dynamics that really make this picture more than excellently drawn. Thank you very, very much.

So those are the winning entries! It was so hard picking who won and why, and I just wish I could have made plushies for everyone who entered. But there will be more contests. And the point is to say thank you for a thousand watches, and I hope to be around for another thousand. And thank you to everyone who entered! I truly loved every single entry, and I'll be contacting each of you to ask permission to make a collage of submissions to show everyone how wonderful you and your entries all are!

Hahaha, I was so nervous! I'm glad I had Naz there with me, because I would have been all Fluttershy otherwise. Happy you enjoyed it ^ ,^

Trust me, you didn't sound nervous! <3 I think you two did a great job~ I hope you get to visit one the Aus cons one day, that'd be very cool~ 
I was very confused when they called you Latent- I only knew you as your current username- so I really wasn't sure who you were until I double checked Latent was your oc/ponysona(?)

I'd love to make a trip like that XD I haven't even been to Bronycon yet, or any brony convention though. I think it'll be a while before I start making international visits like that ;p
Latent Promise was my old 'sona, but he wasn't received all too well. I really filled in his character back when I was shipping him with Naz's Cobalt XD After that ended I felt his loneliness, and thought I needed a bit of a change. So I made Double Backstitch. Promise hasn't really been focused on since, though he's a bit truer to "me" and I still go by that username on skype or elsewhere. Mostly because people haven't caught on to calling me Backstitch yet I assume, heheh...
