Custom Pet Portrait Figment Familiar - Made to Order
Custom Pet Portrait Figment Familiar - Made to Order
This listing is for one made-to-order Figment Familiar in the image of your pet! These pieces make lovely pocket-sized celebrations or memorials, and are always made with respect and love.
Please provide details regarding the colors and design in your order notes, and you can use Etsy conversations to send photos if needed. I am happy to work from photos or descriptions, but please include all important details in your message if you choose not to provide images. By default Figments are in seated poses, but I can also do lying down poses at the buyer's request. Figments are between 2 and 4 inches tall or long, depending on the creature type chosen.
Please include all details that are important to you in your order notes! I'll happily accept very specific information, but if you only name a dog breed or cat color I'll have chose the design based on breed rather than individual features. Abstract designs such as hearts and swirls can be added on top of natural markings at your request. We can discuss details via email, and I will happily provide a sketch if you're unsure. There are no refunds on made-to-order pieces, so please be clear about what you want if you have a vision of exactly how it should look!
The examples shown in this listing are past projects which will not be duplicated exactly, but serve as inspiration for what your finished Figment might look like. If you're not sure how your idea would look as a Figment Familiar, please reach out to me and we can chat about what's possible! I also ask that you reach out before ordering if you want any kind of extras with your Figment so that I can let you know what’s possible.
Made-to-order Figments take 2-3 weeks to ship. Please contact me before placing your order if you need your item rushed.
These tiny companions are the perfect way to make sure you always have a friend close by! Figments become very attached to their owners and like to stay near you. Because they are constructed with no resin parts or armature they can be carried in a bag or pocket just as easily as they can stay on your desk, bedside table, or personal altar. I recommend that traveling Figments be given their own small pouch to protect them from rubbing or staining.
Figments come in many varieties, and each one has a unique Heart embedded inside its felted wool body. This Heart gives each Figment its own individual energy and personality. When you purchase a Figment, you have the option to choose the type of Heart you would like set inside it! You can even choose to send your own item to be used as the Heart if you like. A Figment’s Heart is fully embedded in the wool from the base, and is not visible from the exterior. Adding a Heart is optional, and you're welcome to choose "None" if nothing speaks to you.
In place of a symbolic Heart, I can also add a small rare earth magnet into the base of your Figment. This can be used to keep them secure on a metal shelf or desk, or to sit your Figment on your shoulder by placing a metal plate or corresponding magnet under the shoulder of a shirt or jacket! Magnets are especially useful for birds and bats, who have narrower bases or might like to hang upside-down.
Shipping will use USPS First Class Mail with delivery confirmation. Please read all shop policies before ordering.
My Arm Can Fly dolls are hand crafted, one of a kind art pieces meant for display. They are not intended as toys for children.

Personal Item - Select this option to mail me a small object of your own for use as the Heart. Please read the information below carefully before selecting this option.
If you would like to send a personal item to be used as the Heart in your Figment, please contact me through Etsy or via email ( myarmcanfly @ gmail . com ) for mailing instructions after you have purchased the listing in which you would like the item used. Please include your order number in the message, and choose “Personal Item” under the drop-down menu for the Heart.
Personal items must be no more than half an inch long in the largest dimension, and smaller items are better. Please be aware that the Heart is not visible in any way once it has been placed inside your Figment; Hearts are fully embedded in the wool, and cannot be seen. Sometimes you can feel the edges of the Heart through the wool at the base, but smaller items are harder to feel. A Heart is placed inside to lend energy and essence to the piece; it is not a decorative element and will not be visible.
Figments with personal items for their Hearts will be shipped within 2-3 business days from the time the personal item is received. I cannot ship your order until the item has arrived, so please do not choose this option if you are in a hurry!
