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.

If I was at Bronycon this year, who'd say hi if they saw me? 

39 deviants said Me!
34 deviants said I mean if I recognized you maybe?
4 deviants said What's that over there!!! *runs away*
3 deviants said Nah, probably not.
Woo, I'm finally setup in a place I can work again! Clean, private, and roomy enough to work from. I've been busy the past week working out the kinks in my mare pattern while working on my second Derpy ever (among other plush too that are on my backlog) and the results speak for themselves: 
Untitled by DoubleBackstitchArtsUntitled by DoubleBackstitchArtsUntitled by DoubleBackstitchArts
Just a few tweaks here and there left before I think I'll be super satisfied with it, but I'm pretty darn proud as is ^ ,^ And really it's just so good to be back to sewing again. I've got a lot of work to do, yes indeed. Plenty to still catch up on, and... hey this month's commish slot was snagged! I can pay off my taxes now ^ ,^ If you're still looking to get a plush now, check this out:
Princess Luna Plush For SaleI'm trying to downsize my plush collection and I will be posting some more ponies for sale over the next week or so. I'm trying to raise a few extra bucks to help my friend out who is having some financial difficulties.
Luna was made by White-dove Creations and has been displayed only in a pet and smoke free home.
I originally paid $900+shipping but I'm asking $750+shipping for her. This is a 1st come 1st serve basis. I will ship internationally but be aware that shipping could be somewhere from $50-$70 depending on your location
Any questions or comments feel free to ask and please only serious offers. Thanks for looking!

A good friend and long-time customer is looking to sell a fine Luna plush made by White-dove Creations. She's only ever been on display in a super tidy environment. She's been barely handled and Wilshire takes such good care of his girls that she's practically new. So check that out if you're looking for a Luna at a discount.

But yeah. I'm still alive, and still fighting to keep at this. Thank you everyone for the support you've given me over the years since I started this as a hobby and the business you've given me as it became something more. What's next will be a lot of work, hopefully a lot of wip pics and updates as I perform feats of sewing might, I'm going to be adjusting my Patreon page again because in the meantime I won't be able to fulfill rewards like those monthly drawings that I'm still way behind on, and in general getting ready to open for business again hopefully by this summer. Keep an eye out for open plush slots as I clear current work, and thanks again ^ ,^

Questions and discussion of a general nature can be had here in the comments or by PM~

From the looks of your plushies, it is a watch well deserved. You are very welcome ^ ,^
nekokevin Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2016  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'll try to make them better. ^-^
mirathomson Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2016  Hobbyist Writer
what else do you do besides ponies?
DoubleBackstitchArts Featured By Owner Apr 19, 2016  Professional Artisan Crafter
Well, I can do almost anything you could ask for or cry trying. Ponies happened to be what I fell into, but I'm always open for other projects if they're fun :3
