Top Twenty Contest EntriesSo, after a lot of thinking, judging and freaking out, here are the top twenty entries! I'll be narrowing it down to top ten after this, then the winners. If you didn't make it into the top twenty, please don't be offended or think that your design is bad! It might just not be my personal taste.

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 Guide1 year 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

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 Resources1 year 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

How to determine what you should charge for your work
In light of the absolutely horrendous commission page DA started up which encourages artists to sell their work for literally pennies, let me talk about pricing artwork. Or more specifically, how I price my work.
This...guide? Advice? Thing? Highlights what I've learned about pricing throughout the last few years. I do not touch on the subject of beginner pricing, simply because there are no set guidelines for that and beginner pricing usually ends up being extremely subjective. This guide assumes that the reader is somewhat experienced in their craft and is looking for pointers on pricing. However I still highly encourage beginners to read! This is what pricing should be like, not mere pennies for hours upon hours of work. This also focuses on crafts and sewing but a lot of it is s
Pony Quilt Project Everfree 2014!Update #3: I have enough people for the project, but I am still taking requests to join until the end of the night. If you want to participate and haven't sent me a note yet, make sure you do it soon!Pony Quilt Project Everfree 2014!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Update #2: I'm still taking requests until tomorrow night before I decide who is doing what, but we definitely won't need anyone to make two squares now! In fact I am going to need to put a few people on the back-up list. Remember that being on the back-up list absolutely does not mean I don't think you are awesome enough to participate, it just means that we have a ton of people! Maybe if the people on the backup list want to we can make some extra squares and make matching pillow cases, or a second smaller wall-hanging quilt! Though I lean towards pillow cases because they wouldn't need batting and quilting. Let me know what you all think of that idea!
Update: I know I gave people until Friday night so there is still time for responses, but I

Art Contest!Good day everyone!Art Contest!3 months ago in Personal More Like This
A handful of weddings have already been announced throughout the fandom and both my future wife and me wish all these people the very best! We'll be newlyweds soon enough ourselves.
But different from this, we would like to run an art contest in celebration of our first child being born, to share joy and excitement during the last months before the birth!
There will be prizes, but they will not be very valuable, I admit.
Here's the rules:
- Design a filly!
- It's supposed to represent a theoretical Ponysona for our daughter.
- Gear your design to our Ponysonas (roughly, so a connection can be distinguished, keep yourselves some freedom).
- No Cutie Mark and name required (but feel free to add, if you feel like it, not necessarily on the Pony).
- Simple image will suffice (no matter scan, photo, digital art, vector or anything else, but make sure we can make out details to appreciate your work fully!).
- Uploading and releasing the image to a blog, artpage, etc

Fluttershy And Nightmare Moon Plush Hair Guide1- Choose your fabric. For Fluttershy, I would use a pink satin, or fleece if you don't trust yourself with expensive material. For Nightmare Moon, I would get some of that special occasion satin from Jo Ann or Hancock that has the little sparkles glued to the fabric, or you could look for fleece with a nebula/space pattern on it (you might have to look online.) Something else that would be interesting is using a translucent satin; it'd look cool over the white batting and edged with blue blanket stitches (use a black or very dark navy blue fabric.)Fluttershy And Nightmare Moon Plush Hair Guide3 months ago in Art Features More Like This
2- Create a pattern by drawing the hair on a sheet of card stock. For Fluttershy, draw her bangs, long mane, and tail separately; the bangs and long mane will be on opposite sides of her face.
3- Cut out the pattern pieces and trace onto the fabric. For satin, use washable tailor's chalk. For fleece, use washable markers. You may or may not want to use markers with translucent satin; they may harm nice fabric, but chalk is really hard
My Little Pony Beanie Plush Commission Info!Hey everyone,My Little Pony Beanie Plush Commission Info!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sorry for the delay in putting this up. A number of things have happened to my family and myself during the past weeks. A couple of things that happened were pretty bad I may get into a more detail later on. These events have delayed me in making my final prototype for the full sized MLP pony plushie, but I'm really hoping I can finally finish it by the end of the week.
In the mean time I wanted to announce that I'm opening 3 slots for my MLP beanie style squeaking plushies. This will be for beanie plushies ONLY. I will make another list for chibi filly plushies (if you really want a chibi filly plush, please note me and I'll see what I can do) and full sized ponies later on. Please read through all the information before asking any questions.

Princess UpdateThings are moving along. I have a test version of the next body prototype that I'm hoping to get done by the end of the week. Unless it comes out absolutely terrible this is going to be the final revision of the body, I'll announce a date for the pattern release and get to work on the instructions and diagrams. So cross your fingers that I haven't messed anything up too badly!Princess Update3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've tested the two crown patterns and the two closed wing patterns that I designed when I did the last set of body revisions. Those all look good to go. Once the body prototype is done I'll take some pictures of them to show everyone. I'm also going to redo the pink mane to go with this prototype. I'll probably do pictures of the four wing styles using the existing open wing prototypes I have. You've seen the basic shapes of the two open wing styles (on my two princess prototypes) but the one on the plaid princess got an upgrade with more details.
I've also designed more mane and tail pieces I'll be using
