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.

I will crochet:
- Anime/game characters
- 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.
