Pony Mare Stallion Plushie Sewing Pattern 27

:iconetsyplz: You can purchase this pattern on Etsy: Pony Plushie Sewing Pattern 27 #0

It's the newer version of my Pony Mare Plushie Pattern 21 And it's the same one I used for Derpy 1 & 2, Twilight 2, and minutely newer than what I used for Bernie.

──◊──┤ Description: ├──◊──

Some people have told me I’m good at teaching and helping others learn. While that may be true, I personally enjoy trying and teaching myself new things as well. So, to enable me push pattern development further with ponies and otherwise, I present Pattern 27, my most used and tried pattern to date! This is a newer pattern than my Pattern 21 and also includes a stallion among other additions.

This pattern, (two PDF documents), includes a basic set of instructions on 6 pages and 12 pages of pattern pieces which include:
►Body pieces (regular and raided hoof variant)
►Head pieces (two variants for the stallion)
►Unicorn horn (newer than my previous Pattern 21)
►2 options for open pegasi wings
►Closed pegasi wings
►Bow Tie with Collar accessory
(Manes, tails, and/or embroidery designs not included.)

This pattern is designed to work with minky fabric or any fabric with a similar stretch. Using different fabrics will likely yield different results. The instructions assume some basic knowledge of sewing, but the pattern itself isn’t particularly a beginner pattern. Nevertheless, I’ve made tutorials available to help with that! :D

The resulting mare plush size should be approximately 13.5" (34.3 cm) when the pattern is printed at 100% actual size. Stallion plush size should be approximately 14" (36.6 cm) at 100%.

H25, B27, UB23, E03 explained: ‘H’ = my head pattern, ‘B’ = body side, “UB” = underbelly and under-legs, and ‘E’ = ear. Numbers represent the respective version of each part.

──◊──┤ Materials and Tools: ├──◊──

►A working sewing machine
►Hemostats (for stuffing)
►Quilt batting
►Poly pellets or some small gravel
►Insulated copper wire or hobby wire to support wings if necessary

►1/2 a yard of minky fabric (or similar preferred fabric)
►Polyester fiber fill stuffing (or preferred stuffing)
►Needle, thread, and pins. (Of course! ^_^)
►Fabric marker/pen

──◊──┤ Usage Policy: ├──◊──

You can make alterations, modifications, and changes to this pattern for personal use. Credit given to me, Adam L. Humphreys, for use of this pattern, in part or whole, would be very much appreciated! :)

so i assume hand stitching is possible with this? o3o
aaah sorry i'm new to plushies so right now a sewing machine is too expensive for me and i'm afraid of asking stupid questions qvq
another one- would fleece work? minky seems to be quite hard to find for me for some reason
adamlhumphreys's avatar
Nothing wrong with asking questions! ^^ But yes, and I believe just about anything is possible with hand stitching, but the trade-off is always that it will take longer of course depending on your pacing and desired durability.
And yes, fleece should also work. Minky is generally hard to find locally, (at least the smooth stuff, the dimple stuff is more available), but… ,… , and… have it. :)

aaah thank you for answering my questions! hand stitching is currently my only option until i can get more money so i'm really excited to get started on this, just gotta order my materials now
i've some sewing experience before so i hope i'll be alright-
i'll make sure to bookmark those for the future, thank you so much!

do you have any tips for making mane patterns?
adamlhumphreys's avatar
Not a problem, and thank you! :D

...I guess not anything in particular? I do have various sewing tutorials though:… ^^
Just found your DA account while looking for a pattern for a gift...I have 1 problem with your offered patterns: I don't know which one my niece would like more! Great and professional! Keep it up!
adamlhumphreys's avatar
Haha! Much appreciated man, and thank you much for the watch! :D I’ll try not to disappoint. :iconfluttershysaluteplz:

Let me confirm that this is an excellent pattern.

In November, I purchased this pattern having never used a sewing machine before. By January, I had a successful prototype.…

This pattern also scales very well. Normally the pattern printed on 8.5" x 11" paper. I decided that I wanted a bigger plushie and used E sized paper (34" x 44"), and it is coming out very well.

I have a few comments.
The body pieces are normally printed on two pieces of 8.5" x 11" paper and then combined. I merged them in Adobe Photoshop so that they print on one 11" x 17" sheet which I find easier.

There is one step, 3.D. which is moderately difficult. The Youtube tutorials are great, but it would be fantastic if this could be eliminated.

For the head, I would prefer a more pronounced muzzle. Many of the commercial plushies add a piece to the front of the head to get this effect. I have not yet figured out how to replicate them.

There are wonderful, and I look forward to your next pattern release.

Sorry for the delay, and thank you so much for your comments! :iconrarityjoyplz:

It's definitely easier to print on larger paper. I just used 8.5" x 11" given the most common scenario. However, your bring up a good point that perhaps I should include larger sizes for those who have access to printers with larger feeds. :nod: The biggest thing I have immediate access to is 8.5" x 14" or legal paper. ^^

Now that you mention it, I definitely think you're right about that. However, I don't think text would suffice, but certainly pictures in conjunction with text. And I see your point, this would save time. :)

While I may be releasing my latest pattern in due time, it still has a fairly short muzzle. I know some have just taken apart inexpensive commercial plushies to help with patterning.

Thank you very much! :iconapplejackhappyplz: My next release should be within the next month if not sooner. I'll finally get to the manes and tails and then a filly/colt pattern after that. Then I hope to return focus back on my biped plushies which still lack the shape I'm after.

I intend on buying this pattern as soon as I have the money. I can't afford to buy custom plushies so I'm gonna try to make one myself! It doesn't look TOO difficult if you already have a pattern, just very time consuming and expensive depending on size and materials. Would that be a correct assumption?
adamlhumphreys's avatar
Yes sir, it would! :nod: Now, it might be more difficult and take longer the first time around, leaving improvement for craftsmanship perhaps, but it certainly beats making 30 or so to finally get the pattern right. :iconrarityknowsplz:
Hope it works out, and thank you! :thanks:

I just finished my first plush the other day and I think it came out pretty well. I used the wrong stitch for attaching the neck, but since this is for personal use it doesn't bug me that much.
adamlhumphreys's avatar
Heh, sorry for the delay. ^^
Yay! :D And hoofsies too. :iconapplejackplz:

Kinda hard to see details, but stuffing in the neck before final attatchment should help. :) Maybe a little more stuffing for the head. But I'm not that experienced with larger scales just yet.
GlacierFrostclaw's avatar
yeah I understuffed the neck on my first attempt. I'm going to upload a picture of my second attempt tomorrow when I'm not half asleep. I feel I did much better on the mare pattern using the experience from the stallion.
adamlhumphreys's avatar
Ah, I hear you. Every bit helps. :nod:
GlacierFrostclaw's avatar my second attempt next to my first.
adamlhumphreys's avatar
Definitely looking better! Maybe a little more stuffing to straighten the neck? I'm not sure how different the fleece is making it look compared to minky though. :iconflutterthinkplz:

whydo i have to be broke..? :c im 15 trying to make plushies why does everyone charge ;-;
adamlhumphreys's avatar
Try making one, then you'll honestly know why the paid patterns are paid and why the free patterns are free. :nod:

Just discovered your work thanks to a folder I have bookmarked for pony patterns. I bought this immediately, I have never made a pony plushie before, I am trying to make a beanie one, but I am kind of falling short. Your tutorials are super helpful! I do have a question though, I noticed you do machine embroidery, can hand embroidering work on this pattern?
adamlhumphreys's avatar
Thank you so much! :iconrarityjoyplz: And I'm glad to hear they've been helpful!
I certainly don't see why not. :) I'd venture to guess that it would cause less distortion than machine embroidery.

OH, and thank you much for the watch! :iconfluttergaspplz: I’ll try not to disappoint. :iconfluttershysaluteplz:

You are amazingly talented in many ways. I will be purchasing them this week. It'll be a long wait but worth it! :D 
adamlhumphreys's avatar
