Yes, but I think the real issue in making one is that the plug is a
right-angle one, and right-angled plugs are usually pigs to fit. But
they are certainly 1/4" in the picture, the proportions are different
for the miniature versions.

No problem getting 2.5mm and 3.5mm mono or stereo rewireable plugs:

though as another poster said, they need fairly lightweight cable.
