About My Plushies





Allergies: I have a dog. Although she doesn't come in contact with the fabric or plushies, I would suggest not buying from me if you are allergic to dogs/pet dander.

Prices: Plenty of artists have addressed this before so I'll keep it simple; It takes a lot of time, effort, and materials to make my plushies. The prices I charge are a combination of supply cost + an hourly rate for my time.

Commission: Information about commissions will be released in my journals, so if you are interested in a slot, keep an eye out.

Embroidery: I use a brother PE500 machine. I started out using designs from E The Pony. I now make designs myself using Embird. I use Hemmingworth Embroidery Thread.

Fabric: My minky comes from a variety of online stores, including Fabric Depot, The Minky Boutique, and Plush Addict.

Rats!

Hi there! I'm Melissa Arnold, aka RetroRuby. I'm an aspiring professional plush maker. I live with my husband and our dog, Ruby (Wonder where my username came from!). I am, for all intents and purposes, a housewife posing as an artist.

I enjoy video games, good movies, anime and cartoons, and doing various arts and crafts. I love animals, and would probably have way more pets than my apartment could handle if my husband didn't have a say.
