Pony ResourcesI'm routinely updating this post with new resources that people send me. So feel free to send me links to tutorials or other informational posts/deviations/links that you think might be helpful to plushy makers!Pony Resources3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been putting together a new list of pony resources over the last few weeks. It's been a while since I did the first journal post on the topic and unfortunately a lot of the original links went dead when BabyLondonStar deactivated her account. I also wanted to include some links for other non-eye and mark related things that I've found over the time I've been on deviantART.
There's a really cool tutorial by BeeZee-Art for making spiral plushie horns that I thought folks might like to see for their unicorns. I think you could also apply it to plushies where the horn is sewn in already, getting your needle in there might be a little harder though.
Once you've finished sewing your pony you may want to take
Plushie Making GoodnessI have been making plushes for about 2-3 months now, and have found the community amazing in providing guides, tutorials and advice on all aspects of plushie making.Plushie Making Goodness3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For that reason I thought it would be a great idea to gather all of the information that I have used into one place so that other plushie makers can get great help and guidance as well.
Here you can find a collection of free and paid patterns, tutorials and guides on pattern making.

My Plushie Making ProcessEDIT - This journal post began as something negative but I have decided to make it into something more positive.My Plushie Making Process3 years ago in Personal More Like This
My Plushie Making Process
1. Create a pattern using photoshop. I often use reference images of ponies from the show to try and get each plushie as show accurate as possible. Each pattern can take anything from 3-10 hours of tweaking in photoshop alone. TIME : 3-10 hours
2. Once I have a pattern I want to test, I convert it to PDF, print it and cut it out. There are normally about 6 pages of patterns not including manes, tails or accessories.
3. Once I have my pattern I now move onto embroidery files. I first take a reference image of the character and create a vector of the eye and cutie marks in photoshop. Once I have a crisp vector, I import it into my digitizing program (Brother's PE Design) and digitize each file. Each plushie has different eyes and cutie mark so this has to be done fo

My Little Pony - Lyra Plushie KitI have gotten a ton of requests to embroider eyes and cutie marks for folks who want a MLP plushie. Sadly, a lot of the detail on embroidering eyes and cutie marks is lost when I try to make a patch out of them. The only option while keeping quality is to embroider directly on the fabric. If you didn't have an embroidery machine, that meant sending me the fabric, I would embroider it, and then mail it back. That back and forth took about a month, and shipping cost was very high. I have been working on different solutions with a few goals in mind. The goals I had in mind were:My Little Pony - Lyra Plushie Kit3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Realistic - The solution had to look like a MLP pony and be 'On Model'. They definitely had to be better than the new TRU plushes that frighten small children.
High quality - The solution had to be high quality. Quality is in the details, so the details have to be wonderfully made.
Huggable - The solution had to be cuddly and soft.
Durable - The sol

How do you embroider? (Updated with findings)Update:How do you embroider? (Updated with findings)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've done several experiments since asking this question, and have come to settle on the following settings to produce the best embroidery:
Stabilizer: Heavyweight cut-away for the very best result (I used Pellon), or 2 layers of medium-weight tear-away (I've tried this for both Pellon and Sulky). Use a water-soluble stabilizer on top of Minky to keep the nap down so the pile will not show through.
Needle: Standard sharp needle, even on Minky. Some recommended ballpoint needles, but the result turned out a bit more sketchy than I'd like.
Embroidery File: 7stitches/mm density, 5 units of fixed pull compensation for pattern fills, and 12 units of variable pull compensation for satin (zig-zag) stitches.
Hooping: Hoop backing stabilizer, and adhere fabric on top. I tried hooping Minky, but the middle kept shifting due to the stretchy nature of the fabric.
Thanks to all (2 of you ) who replied to this entry with suggestions, and to all
Plush Charity Auction!SOLD! Thanks to everyone who participated!!Plush Charity Auction!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This beautiful lady will soon be in the arms of a child at Brenner's Children's Hospital who will treasure her, as per the request of the wonderfully generous buyer!
Click the image above to see the specifics about the plush itself!
This beautiful mare's name is Hopeful Heart, or simply "Hope" for short. She was auctioned on ebay, and all the proceeds donated to the Breast Cancer Research Fund.
Last Christmas, I did an adopt auction and raised a little over $200 for The Salvation Army. I've been doing a bit of cancer research in a lab this past year (mostly bone and colon cancer), and I've realized how much work and money goes into it. As such, I want to try to give to another charity for cancer research.

1. I'm going to be taking 5 Fluffle Puff orders a month for now, I may take more in the future, but I'm going to see how well I do with 5 first since I have other commissions lined up too.
2. I'll be posting in my journal when I'm open and closed for Fluffle Puff commissions.
3. Fluffle Puffs will cost $70 USD and $12 USD for US shipping, so $82 in total. $18 for international, so $88 in total.
4. All payments will be received via Paypal.
5. To get a Fluffle Puff Plushie order in when I'm open, please note me ONLY when I have orders open. I will not take back orders.
6. When you note me to order, please tell me what kind of eyes (looking forward or slightly derpy looking), and mouth (closed or pbbt*) you want on your plush. The different looks will cause no difference in price. (See below for examples.)

Still feeling pretty out of it, but I'm better. Also my dad is still at the hospital which wasn't helping my recent stress overload. Though he's much better now and he SHOULD get out within the next few days, finally.
Needless to say I'm really behind on comments and notes now *looks at front page in shame, I'm so sorry I'm not ignoring you guys*, I'll do my best to catch up with everything eventually but I'm gonna be slow at it, sorry in advance!
But now for something more cheery, meme time!

Before anything, just allow me to tell just how much I have adored and cherished the love, kindness, support and friendship I have gained from all of you who cared to view what I'd drawn.
Doing these silly (And usually illogical/disturbing) comic-strips and images has literally been one of the highlights in my life, as cheesy and cliché as that may sound, I swear, it's absolutely true.
