Please send all business-related notes (commissions, shop, trades, ect) to daydreamsordaymares!!! There's a good chance I won't respond to notes like that on here! Thank you!

Can I have your patterns?
Nope! Not for free, not for money, just no in general. Sorry!

Can you help me with a project?
I CAN do that! Feel free to message me with any sewing-related questions, I'm happy to help. Just please be specific in what you need help with!

When will [x] be restocked in your store?
We open the shop most Mondays for preorders; if the item you want isn't available then, that means we're out of fabric for it and should have more by the next preorder period.

Can you let me know when [x] is available for sale?
Nope, sorry! But since we've switched to preorders, it's super easy to just check the store Monday evenings! You can also follow ourfacebook or tumblr for stock announcements.

Will you reserve a plushie for me until I can pay?
I will do week-long holds, but after that it'll go back up for sale again- I can't afford to hold onto a plushie indefinitely! Alternatively layaways are available, so you can pay in smaller installments over a period of time rather than all at once.

Do you take trades?
No, I don't, sorry! I may consider partial trades, if you have things to offer, but I can be fairly picky.

You haven't replied to my note?!
If it was business-related (i.e., commissions and the like) please contact daydreamsordaymares instead! I'm not very good about replying to stuff like that as I spend most of my time sewing ;;;
Otherwise, you can send me another note and I'll probably respond this time! Chances are I just forgot to reply ;;

What materials do you use for your plushies?
Minky, mostly. Eyes are either embroidery, felt, or safety eyes.

Can I resell the plushie I bought from you?
Heck yeah!
However, if it comes to my attention that you're reselling my plushies with the intent to make a profit without talking to me about it first, I'll probably make an effort to ban you from future sales. It's a really disrespectful thing to do!

Preorders time!

Hi! I got a beanie Charmander from you at Pensacon and it's absolutely ADORABLE! I'll probably have to buy more of these from you in the future, they're just too cute! I did have a question though...the only starter I've seen that you've made has been Charmander. Do you have any intentions of doing any of the other starters at any point? I can understand if they're just too difficult - I can't imagine doing a Snivy like this. But I've got to say, I'd have a hard time passing up a chance to get the rest of the original Kanto trio. Just curious, I'm sure you're pretty busy as it is with all the cuties you already make.

Aw gosh thank you!!!  I've been planning on making Bulbasaur and Squirtle for a little while but haven't really had time to figure out patterns U__U so HOPEFULLY I'll at least make those, but I'm working on some higher priority projects right now so I can't say when ;;;

Hi, your plushies are amazing!!

I have a 3 questions tho:

- Are they sewn by hand? Or machine?
- Are you self taught?
- and is embroidery easy? ;3;

-I use a machine for most of my work, but I do finer stuff by hand- i.e. the body, head and ribbons on a Sylveon plush are sewn separately by machine and then those pieces I'll sew together by hand :>
-Kind of!  I learned most of the basics from my mom, but more complex stuff I learned myself.  I definitely haven't had any professional training though :P
-That depends on the person and whether you're doing it by hand or machine!!  Hand embroidery I found super easy to get the hang of, but it's VERY time consuming and it's easy to ruin the whole project with one mistake.  Machine embroidery is definitely simpler since the machine takes care of the actual embroidery for you and it goes WAY faster, but getting used to the software involved is tricky.  And like with hand embroidery if something goes wrong you pretty much have to start over ;; overall I wouldn't say embroidery is HARD but it's definitely an acquired skill.

Thank you so much for replying :D

I started my own plushies (with patterns found on DA) so was interested in how you started as yours look so good! :)

These are mine:

It looks hard, but I've been thinking of looking into embroidery :3 I thought it would be impossible without being taught, but if it's not that hard when is worth a shot!

Those are real cute!! <3
Yeah, my plush work is pretty much 100% self taught- most of what I knew beforehand was more applicable with clothes.  I never really got the hang of making apparel like I did with plushies for some reason though ;;
If you're interested in hand embroidery, I found this website really helpful when I started learning! www.needlenthread.com/
They have a really comprehensive list of stitches with video instructions, along with patterns if you want to practice on something simple :D
