|First off , Im swedish and dont use english as my main language, so im sorry if some part of the text sounds weird .|
The plushies i make are always made of minky fabric , wich is a super soft high quality fabric with a fur pile. Often used for baby blankets and similar items. The fabric "melts" in your hands.
For mane and tail i work both with minky and with faux fur. I love the challenge faux fur gives (even if its frustrating, lol).
When i make faux fur manes i sew them in actual molds/shape of the in-show look, and fill them with polyester fiber fill so that they maintain their shape even when the hair isnt perfectly styled with a comb (even if combing it will greatly improve the look). This makes the fur hair easy to maintain in a show specific look.
Eyes & cutiemark:
At the moment i use high quality iron ons. These are durable and stay on well. I know some dont like them though. as they are ofcourse more fragile than embroidery. The ones i use though is intended for clothes. ive used the same type on some of my T-shirts and they keep their color well even after several machine washes, and they havnt loosened.
Im getting an embroidery machine this christmas! (will get it slightly after that though) so it wont be long until i can offer this aswell.
Im practicing on satin stitching aswell, lets say i need more training still
When you want a comission its your choice if you want minky or fur hair.
The comission list is only an advice on plushies, if you have your own idea or dream about a specific type of plushie (like OC, specific sizes or accesories) just let me know and we'll see what we can work out! Afterall, its custom made and basically anything can be made (i currently only craft ponies though.)

*Please note that these are rough prices. Things like type of pony (alicorn etc), accesories and amount of colors or complextity may increase the price.
