Hey! You can support my arts on Patreon! Help keep Double Backstitch Arts alive at…

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: BAM That do anything for ya? ;D

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?" "Are you single? ;)"
A: Nope.

Q: So... Favorite soda? Favorite music? Favorite show? Favorite movie? Favorite game? Favorite pony?
A: Dr. Pepper, most anything 80's and classic rock, either G1 Transformers or G4 MLP, Star Wars: A New Hope, either Duke Dukem 3D or FallFancy Sev'n, 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.

So who out there is going to see that newfangled Star Wars film? Better yet, who out there is cosplaying when you go? :) 

20 deviants said I'm going to see it!
12 deviants said I'm not particularly interested in Star Wars, but I understand why people are excited for it.
6 deviants said I'm going to see it opening day!
3 deviants said Waiting for it to come out on video cassette and DVD so I can watch without that kid in the Yoda shirt kicking the back of my chair over. And over. And over.
2 deviants said Please don't talk about Star Wars in my home.
1 deviant said I'm going to see it in costume! (tell me all about it in a comment! Share pics pls!!)
1 deviant said Dude, I'm a member of the 501st. Do you have to ask?
1 deviant said Looking forward to your answers, and feel free to hit me up for last minute cosplay advice and resources if you need them ^ ,^
No deviants said I'm a Trekkie dressing up with friends as Kirk, Spock, and McCoy just to mess with people.
Hello there. It's been a while, yeah? I'm still... "de-homed" so to speak. I still can't work. I'm still sticking with my family. I'm working on building something though. Someplace that'll get be back to work and my family comfortably housed. It's... life. I'm managing. I'm not doing too hot. I'm alive. I'll get by. I hate what my life's become. It'll get better.

So anyway, Patreon. If anyone's noticed, I've removed all but a single goal more fitting of my situation. And I've cut all drawing rewards except sketches. I recently had a hard drive failure on my most frequently used computer (my laptop) and that's put a dent in my drawing ability. I'll try to get something set up to work digitally. I really need to catch up on patron art owed. Sorry it's taking me so long. I might drop sketch rewards too if I can't get things working, just to give me more time to catch up. I might even close my Patreon page.

If I can get stuff working though, I'm planning to stream drawing things because I've got to do something creative to keep my mind calm. But yah if you're pledging towards me on Patreon for any other reason than helping me out with food, clothing, and necessities (like that new hard drive) then I'm sorry. I really wanted to do some awesome things with this. Everything just fell apart, like it has been for years now. All of my dreams just keep getting further from my reach by the day, it feels.

I just wanted to update y'all on some changes and stuff, if anyone really cares much anymore. Except of course people I owe work to. I know y'all care, and I'm still going to get your stuff to ya as soon as I can. But I'm starting to wonder if I should just... not take any more commission work after I'm caught up. I don't want to do this to people any more. I started this to make people happy, not make them wait a year or more for my life to be stable long enough to sew something for them. I don't know if I'll even have a customer base to work for by the time I'm able to come back to this. Maybe I'll put it to a poll or something. I'm out of touch with what's hip these days anyway. Are ponies still cool?

Type me up your thoughts and responses in the comments and whatnot. Sorry again about all this. I'm as much a mess as my life is these days XD

i hope you dont mind me asking but how much would it take to get you back on your feet atleast
DoubleBackstitchArts Featured By Owner Dec 27, 2015  Professional Artisan Crafter
It'd take one calm, clean, safe room to work from and a few months' time to sew. I have neither of those on my hands right now, regretfully. But I'm still working on that.
