My name is Jaelithe, but most people call me Jae or Sugar and I love to sew~!

I've loved soft and cuddly plush friends ever since I was a child, and would love to share my fondness for them with all of you~!

I'm a self-taught freelance plush artist, and am currently working my way towards plushing full time, in the hopes that I can support myself doing something I love. One day I hope to be able to design official prototypes for companies.

I adore Pokemon (my top favourite is Feraligatr :aww:), writing, video games, pastel/vintage clothing and hair, sewing, Disney, alligators and various other things.

Feel free to say hi if you want a chat and I hope you all like my work!

Hello there~! Oh my gosh, that's lovely of you to say~! I'm honestly so happy to hear that, if you ever need any help with sewing feel free to ask~♥ We've all got to start somewhere aha, my first few plush were pretty awful too >~< If you stick to it I have no doubt you'll make some super adorable plush~! I do use a sewing machine, mine is a combined sewing and embroidery model. I used to hand sew when I first started but my gosh it's slow haha.
(oh gosh that'd be so sweet of you, though you don't have to haha. I don't really use my pony OC much anymore, and I haven't publicly posted any of the ones I've been working on yet, but I do love Feraligatr and lots of other Pokemon~)

that's so sweet of you! i think im pretty quick at handsewing actually! but it's difficult to make shapes properly? do you have any tips on how to handsew in a way that won't make the shape come out lopsided?

this was the final outcome of my first plush btw! as you can see, it looks a lil lumpy, but im still pretty proud for a first try at sewing in general! :'D 
do you happen to know what your sewing/embroidery machine is called? or where i can get one and if you recommend the model? i've always wanted to learn how to use a machine! i figured i'd ask someone with more experience on that, cause i don't really know where to begin when it comes to the machines!
(one mega cute feraligatr coming up!)

Aww what a cutie~! Hm, beyond making sure your stitches are straight I'm not really sure. The way you stuff could be a factor, I stuff quite firmly with small bits of stuffing at a time, since while under stuffing makes your plush more squishy/cuddly, doing it firmly usually gives you the best shape in the end. It looks like you've used those fluffy socks? They have a lot of stretch to them which can make stuffing difficult.
I have a Brother Innov-is 1250D, but if you're just starting out I'd recommend just a basic sewing machine. Embroidery machines are pretty pricey and are a whole different learning experience to regular sewing aha. You don't really need anything too fancy for a machine, I only really use the straight and zigzag stitches, which all basic machines should have. Brother, Singer and Janome are all reliable brands, though there's others too.
(oh gosh that's so kind of you~:heart:

I was wondering if you have any tips for sewing stuffed animals? I want to make a stuffed animal of my cat (not really going to say why since it is a bit sad, if you want to know I could tell you) and I’m not sure where to start. I’d prefer rather simple methods since I’ve never sewn an actual stuffed animal before

Hm, my patterning method is mostly intuitive so it's not really something I can teach. If you're an absolute beginner I'd recommend either buying a pattern or using a free one to start with, so you get a basic idea of how pieces fit together to make 3D shapes. There's a lot of free patterns on here, and I'd recommend TeacupLion's Etsy store for lots of super cute patterns~

I knew about using a pattern (I was going to find one actually) but do you know how to keep the shapes in shape if that makes sense? Like, keep the circle 3D and circle shaped? Also, what fabric do you recommend that isn’t too expensive?

That'll mostly be a combination of the pattern, fabric and how you stuff it. A lot of patterns these days are likely made with minky in mind, which had a bit of stretch. The more a fabric stretches, the more likely it'll be warped after stuffing. How firmly you stuff it will contribute, though if you're using a fabric with a lot of stretch like fleece, it can be difficult due to how stretchy it is, if that makes sense. Fleece is probably the next popular fabric after minky, and is pretty affordable, though you might need to adjust patterns due to the stretch.
