Fanart is not just limited to drawing, you also have those that have skills with needle and thread to bring creations to life. Once such artist is xSystem on deviantART. Her main focus is Pokedoll style plushies but she is adventurous enough to try new things her commissioners ask.
Featured here is a chibi Loftwing that I commissioned her to make for me. She used the highest quality plushie fabric (minky) and spent a lot of time putting this little guy together. For a size comparison, he is about the size of a standard soda can.
So if you are looking to spend a bit of money for a one of a kind plush, look into xSystem before her commission list fills up!
