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 Guide2 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
Tutorial: How to machine stitch heads onto bodiesTutorial time! This is another basic tutorial that will show you how to machine stitch a plush's head onto its body. Please be aware that I can't teach anyone how to make patterns. I'm just putting together a few tips and tricks that will hopefully help someone.Tutorial: How to machine stitch heads onto bodies11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Sew your plush's body together, leaving the entire back open.
Sew your plush's head together, also leaving the back open.
Match the head to the body and pin. When making your pattern, make sure the circumference of the opening at the bottom of the head is equal to the circumference of the neck opening of the plush body.
Sew a straight line from one end to the other.
The plush's head is now attached!
You should now have a plush with the entire back open! All you have to do now is finish it!
Plush Commission InfoThings to know before commissioning me:Plush Commission Info2 years ago in Personal More Like This
READ THIS PLEASE
. I'm going to put this first, because this always seems to surprise people: Your plush will take 1-3 months to complete after paying for it! It takes time! I have 8 slots; all 7 of those plushies before yours have to be made. Understand that I am still in high school, and I'm very involved in the drama program. Not to mention I take acting, dancing, and singing lessons! I'm very busy, so sometimes I can't work on your plush as often as I would like to!
. If you live outside the US, tell me BEFORE you ask for a price quote. Otherwise I will assume you live inside the US, and will give you that shipping price. Sometimes I'll check your profile to see which country you live in, but sometimes I don't.
. My plushies are durable, but if you yank on them and play rough with them, then yes they will break. And if you break it, I will not refund it. However, if you receive it broken, or it breaks after limited usage, I will pa
Pony Price ListGeneral Commission Info Hat Pricing FAQPony Price List3 years ago in Personal More Like This
All plushes are minky with applique eyes and cutie marks, unless otherwise agreed upon.
"Starting prices" are listed for all types of plushes. "Starting prices" are defined as the price for the most basic pony of that kind. I start from my base pony price and add charges according to how difficult the character is to make. Design elements that add complexity such as difficult or multicolored manes, body markings, and modifications to the basic pattern will add cost. For a full and amus
I hope I never become like this. [rant]Seems like the more popular an artist gets, the more snobby and irritable they become. I've known more than a couple artist ever since they had almost no followers, and they used to seem so much nicer and you could actually have conversations with them. As soon as they get a few thousand followers they become bitter, jaded artists.I hope I never become like this. [rant]8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I understand if you want to be little miss serious business from now on, but don't go hiding comments and then claim I said something mean or rude or w/e. Use someone else as your "example."
I don't understand how someone can make such beautiful art, yet have such an ugly personality.
I'm not going to mention any names, I just needed to get that off my chest.

When you make your gusset pattern, leave a little hole where you want the horn to be.
Pin the horn to the gusset hole. They should be the same length.
Now match the back of the horn together and pin.
Sew from the end of the gusset to the tip of the horn.
Now you have a horn that's machine stitched to the gusset!

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 Resources2 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

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.

Tail is done! :iconraritylaplz: So, there’s been a few changes. I decided to go with AAAs, but I don’t think that’ll be a problem. The EL-wires, which suck the most power, ran for a good 3 hours in my first test using AAs, but they still had a very good charge. Also there’s slightly less EL-wire to be powered (though that’s probably a negligible difference). The LEDs alone will last a lot longer.
And in case anyone was wondering about the battery location... , the only logical and easily concealable location, after a lot of thought, was the rump. :iconshockedlunaplz::iconlunagaspplz::iconlunakiddingmeplz: Why?

Iron ons?:some FAQ about the iron ons as i get ALOT of questions about those
They are iron ons intended for cloth , high quiality ones and not the cheap type wich may fall off easily. (made to last long time on fabric).
people seem to have too much preconceptions about iron ons (wich is understandable).
They do not peel off unless they're heated too little with the iron.
The ones i use feels a bit like plastic (imagine your average T-shirt print) and not paper-like.
Some crafters put them on poorly and give them a bad name overall (ive seen some bad examples where
