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!…

Also now on tumbly!…

And Furaffinity, the site slightly less for the faint of heart than deviantART o ,o…

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

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 Also if you got a quote from me in 2013 or before, then you've likely got outdated rates so re-ask if you wish.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 show? Favorite movie? Favorite game? Favorite pony?
A: Dr. Pepper, Queen but really anything especially 80's, 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.

Plush Artists That Rock!

A section otherwise known as, "If I'm not open, check out these artists!" I've had the pleasure of meeting a lot of great plush people during my time doing what I do. They're really nice, they're fantastic at what they do, and I've been helped out by most of these fine folk in one way or another over the years. I've been asked about what other plush making people are out there more than a few times while I've had commissions closed, and I'd like this list to stand as an answer to that question. This is by no means a complete list, and I'll be adding to it as time goes on.

My fav: The Great and Laying Trixie! by adamlhumphreys
He's got a lot of plushing talent, and has on more than one occasion blinded me with science! Really, check out more of his work. It's fantastic.

My fav: Nightmare Rarity by agatrix
Agatrix is one I know only by reputation, but what a reputation it is. Her work is always outstandingly great and so varied! Give her gallery a look, I'm pretty sure your jaw will drop.

My fav: Vinyl Scratch Plushie by ButtercupBabyPPG
She' makes 'em big and not too big, but she always makes them very fine. As one of my favorite plush artists, I can't say enough nice things about her work so go check it out for yourself! You won't be disappointed.

My fav: Trixie and Trick Shot by fireflytwinkletoes
Just wow. Firefly is amazing, with great variety and unbridled talent. I almost don't feel worthy of mentioning her here, because you probably already know of her. If not, please go check her out!

My fav: Princess Luna s1 plush by hystree
Hystree is a legend in my eyes. Her ponies were some of the work that most inspired me when I was starting, an example of the best of the best there was. I don't think she's open for commissions, but just go and look at her work. It's beautiful.

My fav: Princess Luna Custom Plush by Nazegoreng
This list wouldn't be complete without Nazegoreng. She's one of the plushers I've been closest to, and she's an undeniable talent with motivation and passion for her work that I always say I greatly admire. Give her very fine work a look, and be amazed!

My fav: Lyra Reshoot by Sophillia
She makes adorable ponies, she's multitalented, and you should go check out her work. I adore all of it, and her X3

My fav: Magic Duel Trixie Plushie by WhiteHeather
WhiteHeather is wonderful at what she does, and is one of those plush people who's been all nice to me from the start ^ ,^ Give her stuff a look, because it's as awesome as she is.

If I were to start making sewing vlogs where I just talk about things and explain a bit about what I'm doing while sewing, would that be something you would be interested in watching? 

58 deviants said Yeah, sure. I could watch a once in a while vid from you :)
5 deviants said No thanks. That doesn't quite interest me.
3 deviants said Haha, Promisepony still thinks he's people...
Y'all said you wanted it, well here it is. Let me know whatcha think ^ ,^'

Commissioning D. Backstitch and You!

Plush commissions are currently CLOSED!
Art commissions temporarily closed!

Note me if you have a price inquiry. I won't answer if you comment, shout, post a dirty fanfic using "What are your prices?" in more than just the obvious ways, or tap it in Morse code. Only through notes.

I spent yesterday from 4AM to 4AM working on manes and tails, and I just woke up so I can get back at 'em XD I'm doing everything in my power to get these ponies done before the end of the week.

Bah, sorry I didn't notice that.
I bet they've be adorable... and a bit front heavy because of the head size.
Jfluffy Featured By Owner Sep 28, 2014
Just dropping by to wish you a good day!
DoubleBackstitchArts Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2014  Professional Artisan Crafter
G'day to you as well, mate ^ ,^ I'm in the middle of cutiemarking and eye-affixing some AJ and Twi right now XD What've you been up to?
Jfluffy Featured By Owner Sep 29, 2014
Excellent, I look forward to cuddling her. I was wondering if you had a rough estimate to when she would be complete?(I'm in no rush, I'm just curious.)

I've been putting together a minecraft modpack the past few weeks, tweaking with the numbers and trying to find a good balance with the gear and blocks; I might even consult you and tap in on your nursely knowledge when trying to balance the hunger system!
