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 list1 year 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: Tips + Tricks for Working with MinkyMy Little Pony Plushie StyleMLP Resource: Tips + Tricks for Working with Minky2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
What: Minky is a polyester, microfiber fabric that is extremely soft. It is often used in baby blankets and quilts, but also seems to be the fabric of choice for many plushie makers.
(Please keep an eye out for more helpful journals centered around plushie making! More will be made in the future!)
These tools can help make your experience working with minky much easier...
Rotary Cutter: http://www.beverlys.com/olfa-rotary-cutter-28mm.html You can use this to cut the minky directly around your pattern pieces on a flat surface, instead of trying to pin the pattern and hold up the fabric while cutting with scissors. The smaller the blade size, the better, because they go around tight curves easier.
Walking Foot: These sewing machine accessories are very useful. When sewing, because minky is slippery, the fabric may slide around a bit and get off track, making your plushie (or whatever you're making) not as accu
Giveaway!I was going to hold this off for a little longer, but seeing as I have so much spare time at the moment while I wait around for replies to job applications I figured I'd get it started.Giveaway!1 year ago in Personal More Like This

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

What is Amendment One, and what will it do?
On May 8th, 2012, North Carolina is opening a ballot to propose banning domestic partnerships between same-sex couples. The ballot will read, "Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state.". It will change the state's Constitution with the addition of this:
Sec. 6. Marriage.
[Marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State. This section does not prohibit a private party from entering into contracts with another private party; nor does this section prohibit courts from adjudicating the rights of private parties pursuant to such contracts.]
Not only that,
it will prohibit same-sex marriage, but it will also:

All notes/comments have been sent out regarding your giftees.
I'm not sure if they send in note form or as replies to your original messages but you should have all received info about them. Please let me know if you haven't!
Due to an overwhelming number of people participating this year, the matching is taking a bit longer than expected. Please be patient, I will post a journal entry as soon as all of the giftee information is sent out.
I've thought about this and I'm changing the rules a bit due to shipping times being drastically longer around the holidays. Basically, you should plan to have it finished by the 25th, and if you're shipping within the US then you should ship it by the end of December. If you're shipping overseas, then you can ship by the end of January. That way it's after the rush and there's less of
