Emergency Commissions!

I need help to pay for my turtle’s recent surgery and follow up work!

I am opening up slots for crochet doll commissions to pay for my turtle’s emergency surgery from earlier this week. He has a lot of difficulties, including a calcium metabolism disorder and scoliosis, and he prolapsed on Tuesday. The surgery to correct his prolapse went well, but because of his shell and hip deformations, he’s going to need a lot of aftercare. His scoliosis also means he may need additional surgeries in the next few weeks because his shell is putting extra pressure on his cloaca and organs.

To help pay for his recent (and possible future) surgeries, I’m opening commissions for small crochet dolls. These dolls are hand-made, usually taking about 2-6 weeks to complete and ship. Here is my most recent example for @thetartestglitter of their OC Lemmy, including the reference picture I used.

For more examples, click HERE!

I will crochet:

  • OCs
  • Anime/game characters
  • Fursonas
  • Humans (You, even!)
  • Lots of other things

I won’t/can’t crochet:

  • Other artist’s characters (without express permission)
  • NSFW dolls (tiny yarn = very difficult)

These dolls are usually 5-7 inches tall, made of a combination of natural and synthetic yarn, filled with synthetic stuffing, and with plastic ‘safety’ eyes. The base price for these dolls is $70. [I am willing to discuss larger commissions.]

I’m also accepting paypal donations at fadedsepiastitches[at]outlook[dot]com. Even if you don’t want/need a doll, please consider bumping this post.

anonymous asked:

Could you please point me to some Autistic owned stim stores? Thanks!

Sure! Please note, though, that unless otherwise specified, these stores are based in the US. For those willing to shop from neurodivergent-owned businesses (as distinct from specifically autistic) there’s a little more choice. If you’re not in the US, you’re very likely going to have to pay extra in conversion and shipping costs (which is why I don’t use ND-owned as a basis for what content goes on this blog, as cool as it is to support fellow autistic and ND creators).

If you’re an autistic crafter and you’re not on this list, it’s either because I haven’t yet heard of you, I’ve committed the terrible crime of forgetting you or I’m unsure if you’re autistic (as per the brief). Please comment; I will add your name and details!

I’m pretty sure most folks have heard of Stimtastic by now (@stimtastic), but on the off chance someone hasn’t, I’ll mention it! I don’t believe anyone has had any negative experiences with their order; the linked Tumblr is packed full of happy customers saying great things. There’s everything from fidget toys to chewables! I love my braid pendant, scented vial necklace and - while I didn’t buy it from Stimtastic because I found it here in Australia - crocheted stress balls. @werevampiwolf makes their bead rings!

If you know more autistic-owned places to buy great toys, please let us know by commenting on this post or sending in an ask. Tumblr has stopped showing the notes in all reblogs, and we now get traffic enough that I (mod K.A.) don’t have the spoons to click on every reblog to see if there’s been an addition. We can’t miss comments, so you’ll help us a lot by commenting. Thank you!

#557 Dwebble

Day 36 was actually Dwebble! I really like it in Magikarp Jump because it looks cute sleeping and I think it’s silly that Magikarp tries to push it and can’t really

I’ve gotten over my cold, but one illness replaced another so I’m not 100% yet. Even so, I don’t want to lose my week ahead of schedule, so I’m slowly working today.

Good news, with what I had started Tuesday night, plus today, I was able to finish that custom pet look a like amigurumi! His tail is wired so it can be posed as desired, and he was made in my basic flopped size and pose. I’m very pleased with how he turned out.

I’ll be starting the next amigurumi soon, and hopefully posting as normal again over the next day or so.

You can commission your own plushies and more at TheTallGrass.etsy.com!

Woo! The beautiful Archdruid is all done! I spent all of today making the leaves and sewing them all on, and just recently finished felting on his eyes and details, and well, here he is! 🌳 What do you all think? I’m so glad to have crocheted my favorite WoW class, and I really hope to make more of the Feral #Legion skins one day, maybe even an Owlcat for myself. I don’t think I’ll be listing this guy as a made-ro-order, but commissioning one for yourself is always an option! Find more world of warcraft inspired plushies at TheTallGrass.etsy.com!

The adorably undead Frosty whelpling is all done! 😄

Wow, I really love him. He turned out so much better than I could have hoped for, and I’m just so proud of him! And there is a definite chance that I’ll be offering him as a made to order Amigurumi later in, as I would love to make him again 💕

This is just my 2nd time crocheting an undead themed beasty from World Of Warcraft and I do hope I get more chances in the future.

Its too sunny to take his photos today, but hopefully they’ll be done soon.

I’ll be starting the next amigurumi soon, and until then you can find lots more Warcraft inspired plushies and models at TheTallGrass.etsy.com!

Before I dive into the vortex of despair, let me show you something cute!

Look!  My custom order Reyes & Sara Amigurumi Dolls have arrived!

The power couple of Andromeda!  6.5 inches in height!!  (Sara is slightly taller than Reyes!  She has a bigger head!  LOL)

You can order your own Sara and Reyes dolls from @53stitches !  Thank you Clare! :D

And here are those pictures of Fenryr I promised! Had to wait for the sun to start setting, but I got them done and that’s the important part 😅 Also got all of detail and size photos inside.

I’m really pleased with his result, especially the fur patches on his front paws, around his neck and down his back, as those were done using a new method I thought of - and one I hope to get the chance to utilize more in the future.

I can’t wait to see Fenryr, Invincible and the Lucid Nightmare all together! Hopefully by the end of Friday 😊
