Gauging interest in a public Pony Pattern!Hi everyone! I've whipped up a cute little prototype pony and if there's enough interest I'll be offering the pattern to the public!Gauging interest in a public Pony Pattern!7 months ago in Personal More Like This
As you can see, it's quite a tiny pony! It stands around 10 inches tall. I will be making a prototype of one of the show characters, complete with mane, tail, and embroidery to use as an example of what can be done with the pattern.
So if enough people are interested I'll offer the pattern. It will likely go for sale on my etsy shop for about $10 for the base pattern. I may include manes and tails, or possibly even embroidery files thought that would drive the price up a bit.
Please feel free to spread the word. I'll keep everyone updated on the progress of the pattern!
Edit 1: I've updated with a new prototype! I fixed a few problem areas in the pattern.

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
Getting started with needle feltingEDIT 7/4/12: Added a couple of additional sources for wool.Getting started with needle felting3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'll probably add more to this later. This is various bits of info about needle felting, and my favorite shops for supplies. They're all in the US though, I really don't know where to get supplies outside the US. Some will ship internationally, though.
Here's what I'd recommend to get started felting: The most important tool would be a good felting needle. I haven't seen the better needles or good wool in craft stores, so you'll have to go to a specialty store or order online. I got some needles from Michael's because they were cheap, but they don't have very many barbs so I don't generally use them now. "Star" needles are my favorite, because they have more sides and more barbs to catch the wool. You don't really need multiple sizes to get started, but you might get at least one spare needle. They do break sometimes. (I'm special, I hit my wire armatures all the time with no problem, but I've broken all sizes of needles on ey

Love is a Lie.I've learn that the hard way. When I learned my long distance girlfriend died, I thought I actually lost someone I loved, but the truth is, she never existed. She and her brother was all a ruse played by a someone I wish to not have contact with anymore. What's worse, in my state of depression, I tried to take my life multiple times. Today I was about to do again, this time, I left a note to my friend that I'm going to do it. I made them worried, and for that, I am sorry.Love is a Lie.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I failed to take my life again thanks to my mother, I received a call from my lawyer who told me the truth. There was no record of Angelica Gainnes in the United States. My depression turned to full rage and I texted "her brother" to know the truth. My mind was blinded that I forgot about that note I left for my friends, so they thought I was in danger. When I finally got the truth and explain them the situation, I said some stupid things. I told them that I never felt love for "Ange", that I was playing "her" game

So you want to digitizeIn this tutorial I'm going to attempt to explain how to autodigitize images into embroidery files. There are many different software programs out there. Here is a link to some free software called Stitch Era: http://www.imprimeo.net/howget.htmSo you want to digitize3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In this tutorial I'll be showing you how to digitize using PE Design Lite!
This software is best used in conjunction with an image editing program like Adobe Photoshop. I've found that PE Design Lite is quite finicky with colors so you need a high quality vector image of the design you want to digitize.
So the first thing you need to do is find or create your design. Once you have a good quality image open your software.
Note: PE Design Lite has only the most basic of functions. For more embroidery options you'll need to buy/download more advanced digitizing programs.
Step 1: Open software
Step 2: Import your image
This is the file I want to digitize:
Step 3: Click the autodigitize button and the color grid will pop up.

You want to make plushies? Tips and resources listEdit: added a part about fabric selection before 'where do I start'!You want to make plushies? Tips and resources list2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ever since I posted Wolf Link and Midna I've been getting an influx of messages asking me to teach, reveal my secrets, take people under my wing, and so on. The sad thing is I can't spend all that much time one on one with everybody asking me to teach them. So I've decided to put together this massive block of text, relating some of my personal experience in plush making and listing off all my resources at the bottom. This will cover the very basics of plush and pattern making so if you are completely new to plush making this is for you, if you're not and you're just looking for resources skip to the bottom. I hope this will be helpful to someone!
First off, the reality. The big secret. The key to becoming a good plush artist is...
I can already feel the glares and exasperation but hear me out first.
One thing I've noticed with a lot of the messages I got were that a lot of people were scared of screwing up.
MLP Resource: Minky Color Guide(Please keep an eye out for more helpful journals centered around plushie making! More will be made in the future!MLP Resource: Minky Color Guide3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, keep checking back, as more characters and their colors will be added soon!)
MLP: Minky Color Guide:
Which minky color works best for ______ (insert MLP character here)?
This journal is an attempt to answer that question. There are more than 50 shades of minky out there, and as a plushie maker, I realize that it can be difficult to know which color will work best for the particular pony you're working on. This is made even more frustrating by the fact that many of the images of the minky do not show the true color!
I recently ordered a ton of swatches from fabric.com, and I'm continuing to collect swatches from various websites, in an attempt to get most of the minky colors. Because I have the actual fabric with me, I can compare it to the characters' colors to see which fits best, to ensure that you can make a plushie that is as show-accurate as possib
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.

Beta Test of Princess Pony Pattern StartedReminder: You have until November 14th to enter to win one of my released patterns (including the Princess, since she'll be released then)! Details are here:Beta Test of Princess Pony Pattern Started1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've just sent out the files to the beta testers. I'm woefully late starting the beta test because the amount of stuff I had to make for this pattern kicked my flank. Right now it's weighing in at 16 pages of instructions, 90 diagrams, and 30 pages of pattern pieces (it's the mane and tail pieces that are killer there because they're so big).
I need to do a few more photo shoots of my prototype ponies during the lull of the beta period. For now these are the best photos of the princess ponies I've made from this pattern:
I also have some pictures of the various wing and crown styles:
