Kitties! It was so funny that I got three independent commissioners asking me to make a cat plushie for them one right after the other, I could not pass up that opportunity to photograph them all together with my pre-made black kitty Sebastian, who is still for sale. From left to right, there's calistamonkey's Holly, a pet-portrait, Panda-kiddie's Oliver (who did not have his name ribbon yet), my Sebastian (showing off the handmade, tea-dyed and written name card every plushie gets), and Zengel's Kurt! I used the same pattern for each of them, and yet they all look like individuals with their own personalities :D I did some thread-sculpting on Holly's front and back legs as they splayed a bit too much for my liking. Oliver's stripes are painted on. All of the commissioned plushies will get their individual photo sets, I just wanted to post this picture first, as a 'preview' :D

Art/photo is mine
Kitties belong to their respective owners.

Sebastian, the black-and-white cat, is still up for adoption! You can get him here: www.etsy.com/listing/174620651… :D

My Holly arrived today, and I must say - NFNGFHFNGFHNGHNGHGGFFFF~  The quality, love and care that's gone into making this plushie is just...amazing!  I hadn't quite anticipated just quite how small they are - you really must see them in real life to fully appreciate the amount of work that's gone into them!  Though it's evident from the pictures too of course! :D  So incredibly pleased with my purchase, as I'm sure all the other commissioners are.  Top quality stuff right here ^___^  <3  I would commission again some time, and would definitely recommend <3

Thanks again for all your hard work, time and care in making this plush for me.  Worth every penny ^___^ <3

Thank you so much :D Yes they are not that large, I like working on this scale or a bit larger! I'm so glad you like him so much, you were a wonderful customer too and I'd happily make more for you, should you decide to get something else :D

Aww! I love the itty-bitty name-tag. they look so professional when lined up like this :D They really do have personality, they also wary a bit in size and expression, it's so cute. I think Oliver's my favourite, I adore the stripes.

Thank you very much :) All my plushies receive a name-tag if they are commissioned or up for sale. It's the 'final touch'! I like the stripes too, they are subtle but came out nicely :)

Aww, that's really cute. Also give sit a personal touch, reminds one that this is an one of a kind work that someone crafted with time, energy and love. The stripes are definitely neat ^^ Sometimes the subtle things can add that final touch needed :3

They all look so cute and huggable. ^^ It really is amazing how you can use the same pattern and get a different result each time you use it. I bet their owners were really happy when they received them!

Thank you :D Yes, some of the differences were intentional but some are unexpected-it's always exciting to see how they come out! The grey and white Holly arrived today and I got a very happy message from the commissioner, I'd say mission accomplished :D

Heheeheeee!  They all look so CUTE together :D  I love all your attention to detail, especially the stripes and the patterns on the fur, and waaaah, they are all so well made ^____^  As you and Sparrowcrazy said, they really do all have their own personalities and you just want to cuddle them all!  OF COURSE, I especially want to cuddle Holly, and I can't wait to receive him in the post!  I'll let you know as soon as he arrives :3  Brilliant work all round!  CAT ARMY!  Thank you for all your hard work on this and for making a very fitting tribute to my awesome late cat, whom I misssomuch aaaghhh ^_______^

Sebastian is super cute - I hope someone adopts him soon <3

They look great! They really do have their own personalities and they look really cuddly! :D

Do you use fabric markers for the stripes or some other coloring method?=)

Avanii Featured By Owner May 14, 2014   General Artist
Thank you very much :D I use Copic markers (Sketch and Ciao types as they have a brush tip). Sometimes I use the blender if a marking is too harsh (that one's basically just alcohol) but I hardly ever have to! Just need to comb it gently a few times and wait one, preferably two days until it's really dry and settled. You can't wash it off with water but you can with detergent, which is why I always advise people to clean them with a damp towel of water only.

Ah, ok... I was just wondering about the washing... I might try fabric markers myself.. just to be on  the safe side when it comes to washing.:D Thanks!

Yes, those should be good in any case. I'm not sure if the Copic ink can withstand machine washing but I'm sure the internet will be able to tell you :) My plushies cannot be washed in a machine anyway!
