How exactly do you stitch the satin on the eye? I mean, what technique do you have to use in order for the stitches to look nice and not saggy?

Nothing more than simple satin stitch:

I have to ask, does embroidery floss (stranded cotton, floss or whatever it is named in english, it is twisted, slightly glossy 6-strand thread for embroidery), Can be also used for sewing pony eyes? like stitch? Or embroidery floss is just too fat to make plushie pony eye?

Why not? Simply divide full 6-strand thread  to six separate strands and do with them. Satin threads I used have the same structure. They are just more shiny than cotton embroidery threads.

Hi,

I'm thinking of using this.

How long does it take to stitch the eye, like shown in panel 3?

:iconessorille:
Essorille Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2017  Professional Artisan Crafter
something like 2 hours for one eye.

Thank you so so much, I've looked up different tutorials before and they weren't as helpful (idk how I've never seen yours!) and were also directly on the plushy's fabric and not felt, I might give this a go even if it seems very time consuming ;w;

Hi! I gave your tutorial a shot but I  could  be able to transfer the eye pattern to the fabric(felt and fleece, tried on both) with carbon paper. Am I doing something wrong?
And you can see my first attempt here: ytolun.deviantart.com/art/Gigi…

:iconessorille:
Essorille Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2015  Professional Artisan Crafter
All kinds of fleece are too soft for this, and may be you used soft type of felt too. Or may be you did small pressing while pass round the eye.

As for your first attempt...
I think you should'n change iris line direction do rapidly. 
And color areas should overlay a bit.
And may be you should make outer sewing more firm

Thank you for your reply. I will follow your advice on my next attempt. But I also want to ask you, could I use this method to sew directly on the face of my pattern? Would it cause any sort of trouble?
Reply
:iconessorille:
Essorille Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2015  Professional Artisan Crafter
if you can transfer the eye pattern directly to the fabric - yep, why not? but if you use soft or piled fabric -  transferring is rather difficult.

:iconytolun:
YTolun Featured By Owner Sep 16, 2015  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I have looked up for ways to transfer, there is a product called water-solvable paper. You simply draw on the transparent water-solvable paper and stabilize the paper onto your fabric with hoop. When you're done stitching, wash the fabric and paper disappears! 

Sounds perfect for people like me who can't draw with hand :) (Smile) I just hope hoop doesn't leave a mark on my plushie.
