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 Also if you got a quote from me in 2013 or before, then you've likely got outdated rates so re-ask if you wish.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.

Oh my gosh! A thousand! That's like. Ten hundreds. Or a hundred tens. Or one thousand ones. And I passed thirty thousand pageviews ._. I'm just a little in shock. Two'n a half years I've been plushing, and I finally hit this super huge milestone X3 Had it not been for all you who've watched me, I wouldn't be plushing today.

And so now, I give back to you, the watchers. In this, the Double Backstitch Arts 1k watcher plush contest!

What's the prize before I start spouting rules? Why it's a pony of your choosing. Anypony (within plushable reason) besides the princesses (Twi is still fine though, wings or wingless). And not just any anypony, but my first ever 1/4 scale pony (if it's a mare that'll be 11 inches tall). I'll plush mane six, background characters, OCs, stallions or mares- will I plush them? Feel free to ask! There will be only one plush winner... but three runner-up prizes.

The runner up prizes will be drawings draw'd by me. Yes, I can draw. After the grand prize winner is picked, I'll pick three runner-ups who I'll draw whatever they want (within reason).


How do you enter?

Well first you have to be watching me. This is a watcher contest, after all.
After you've made sure you've pushed the watch button, post a journal on your own page explaining briefly that I'm having a contest and provide a link back to this journal.
Now you can create your submission! And your submission can be anything. Art, craft, music, video, a game, sketches, baking (pics of baked goods only; I'll take your word on the taste ;p), interpretive dance, papercrafts, anything. Just so long as you've put your best into it. It has to have heart, and it has to fit the theme. What theme?

Your submission has to have something to do with one of my ponies. You've got two to pick from, either Double Backstitch:

Or Latent Promise:

You can do whatever you want with them, but I should hope it stays roughly "in character". If you've got a submission idea and want to run it by me, feel free to. One condition, no nsfw of Backstitch. But you can do something with your pony or ponies and mine, or just something involving one of mine, or really anything. Use your beautiful imaginations! If you're really short for ideas, Promise has a special somepony named Trick Shot(belonging to wilshirewolf) ~ ,^

With your submissions, it'd be wonderful if you would give a rationale on why you did what you did. Conveying the reasoning behind what you made will really help my understanding the soul of it. If you don't want to explain yourself, and prefer to have your submission stand on its own, that's fine too.

So! That's that. The start for the contest is now, and the deadline for submissions is my birthday, August 6th, so I won't be taking submissions from the 7th onward. Submissions can be sent in by note, link me to whatever it might be you've done and I'll save it in my newly made submissions folder! (for physical craft things, you don't have to mail it to me XD) I'll take a few days to a week to judge the submissions (depending on how many I get) and then I'll decide who gets the plush and who gets the pics.

If you've any questions that this doesn't answer, ask in the comments or by note. Questions on my ponies can be asked too, and about the prizes if I wasn't clear enough on them.

Thank you all for all these watches, and views, and everything! Good luck, and I can hardly wait to see what you wonderful folks can come up with ^ ,^

How often are you asked about putting "special features" as it were, on the back of your plushies?

Oh goodness, at least every few weeks. A little more frequently than others, I believe, as my rumps have kind of been a selling point on my girls and I work on such large scales comparatively cheaply. And yet there's still funding out there going towards making Chinese knockoffs of my 45 inch lifesizers because clearly my prices are too high. So let's make the Chinese make 'em for exactly material costs, less the stuffing. Because that seems reasonable. > ,<

(Just to make sure we're on the same page,"Special features" meant genitalia.)

P.S. I'm at Bronycon, want me to pick something up and mail to you while I'm here?

Smells like capitalism to me. But I would imagine someone who likes and enjoys making the lifesizers would take care in making sure that the final product is of quality and as long lasting as possible, over producing the product and getting it out as fast as possible. Not to mention you seem to care about the condition of your work seeing as you have that half-size Luna being shipped for restoration.

It's the best musical decade X3 Don't Stop Me Now is one of my all time favs, but my actual favorite song is a little one by Stan Bush for the '86 Transformers movie, "Dare".
