Akemi Plush by Lithe-Fider Akemi Plush by Lithe-Fider
:heart: DOWNLOAD FOR MASSIVE BIG SIZE OF BIGNESS. :heart:

A plush commission a long time in coming for :iconflarveon: ! It is of her character Akemi (This is one of her drawings of her for ref: [link] )

The plush is 18 inches from nose to butt. Made using cuddle fleece (the purple/pink) which is VERY soft and one of my new favorite fabrics! X3 The red is a standard low pile, nice quality fur fabric. The purple fluff around her hair poof is wefted merino wool - I learned recently how to weft it on my sewing machine! It's awesome! :heart:

The red fluffy bits are the same fabric I am using for my Okami costume (which I WILL finish sometime before I die XD ). It has been spray dyed with "Simply Spray" fabric dye. She has some beans in her paws for floppyness, and has been loosely stuffed for hug ability.

This was my first time making a true plush pattern, and it was COMPLICATED omg. It may be hard to believe but before this I mostly just kinda winged it and would sew parts together; it would never be exact enough to have a reproducible paper pattern.

But after devising a way I can understand and make a complicated uni-body construction pattern I think I will be making more in the future, so I can make plush faster and better. Also I plan to make myself a plush with the pattern, probably one of my dog-dragon's :D !!

:dance: Commissions - I put a lot of work into my plush and do exactly what you specify and some people don't seem to realize what a skilled artist's time or quality materials is worth. :/ Or that I have a life in between.

Expect to pay at LEAST $90 for most average character designs in average plush sizes (6-9"). One like this would be around $175. Complexity matter more to cost than size, but obviously a 18" plush is more than a 7" . c:

Hi :3 I'm impressed with your plushie-making skills <3 I'm making one at the moment and I have little problems with the head. So I have question, how do you make it looks so... Canine? Because in every try mine looks flat and not nice D: Could you tell me some tips? Or how the pattern should look like? Thank you :3

I would have airbrushed it, but the purple was so dark/fuzzy (the thinner airbrushing would not have shown up very bright) I simply hand painted it on with a medium stiff flat brush and some acrylic paint. :) It made a nice blend effect.

I've been looking around for people that make commissioned canine plushes and you seem to fit that category.

I have this one character I would love to see as a doll: [link]

I just want to know how much it would cost to make him, so it could give me a chance to save up.

Lithe-Fider Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2008  Professional Artisan Crafter
I am flattered you feel I meet your high standards! Many hours go into my work, I take great care for detail, top quality materials, and durability. ^_^

Oh wow he's a really fun character, X3 complicated too. I love the big ears and colors! :heart: . For your guy he looks like he'd use a soft minky short fur (like the purple on this Akemi plush) with airbrushed long fur for the hair/tail with some wool roving too. :aww: Beaded necklace and collar?

Size based on height (not including ears :-P) in a sitting pose like in your pic. Prices do not include shipping. I'd quote you at:

:bug: (about 7-8") Simplified chibi style with beans in the feets: $95 (I had a minute so I drew a quick sketch for what I mean by 'chibi' [link] )

:bug: (about 12-14") More proportioned detailed style: $175

Yeah holy crap that totally wins, man. XDDD I SO love the pattern, especially in the feet there. Top notch job! Super professional work and everything. Great fabric too! Thanks for including all the info on the fabrics and everything. I know so many ppl are so stingy with their info XD they work great together, and kudos on wefting and everything! It's hard to get consistant, but this looks like it was bought off the bolt like that! Man I'd love to save up to commission you XD
