Autumn Orchid plushie!  (featured in DD!) by moggymawee Autumn Orchid plushie!  (featured in DD!) by moggymawee
Autumn Orchid is an OC pony I'd adopted from the lovely :iconxwhitedreamsx:.  I fell in love with her the moment I saw her (all that gorgeous pink!!!  ^o^) and knew I just had to plush her!  :3

Honestly though... I'm not sure where to start.  This plushie took sooooo long to make >.< like, her hair took waaaaay longer than Mardelia's.  Now I'm in serious need of a "complex-mane-break".

Her airbrushing took a lot longer than expected (probably because I'm still really new at it), and those little flowers... omg... those flowers.  They might look small and "insignificant" but they took me a whole day to sew (and were beyond frustrating to work on).

However, despite all the time, effort and frustration involved, I really enjoyed making Autumn.  I got to experiment with a lot of new things including:

1) new alicorn/princess body pattern ^o^ (I chose to plush Autumn's head using my mare head pattern since that's what she had in her original reference pic)
2) airbrushing to create gradients!
3) flowers!!

I also managed to use 2 new shannon minky colours - scarlet and banana in her flowers and scarf!  ^o^

And the best part is, I get to keep her!  ;) And she's so beautiful and special to look at!  ^-^  I'm a very proud owner!!

Finally, I have to give credit to my hubbie, who helped me with the airbrushing process/cleaning etc.  Without his support, I probably would not have started airbrushing... so THANK YOU SO MUCH!  :3

Hope you guys like her!!!  ^o^

Details:

*Materials: cuddle 3 minky by Shannon Fabrics, minky baby fabric
*Minky colours: tan, blush, coral (shannon), coral (MBF), banana, scarlet, gradients in hair/legs/scarf by airbrushing
*Stuffing: premium polyester fiberfill, quilt batting, craft foam and poly pellets in hooves
*Thread: gutermann polyester sew-all thread, madeira polyneon embroidery thread
*Eyes/Cutie marks: machine embroidered
*Size: Approx 19" tall, 18" long
*She has my signature embroidered into the bottom of her front right hoof

For my next project, I plan to sew Princess Cadence (for myself), Princess Luna (for sale) (will need to design my alicorn/princess head pattern first) and  Ocean Lotus (Autumn's little sis who also has gradients!).  I'll also be casually working on a foalsitter Cadence as a trade with a special DA friend :P

Just a reminder that my free plushie contest is still ongoing but will be closing in less than 2 weeks' time:

Autumn Orchid plushie! (my OC) by moggymawee

The suggester said: "I was really impressed by the smooth color gradient and the shaping. The curls are beautifully executed as well! The rest of her gallery shows the same level of craftsmanship." ( Suggested by aphid777 and Featured by cakecrumbs )

My last month paycheck was for 11000 dollars… All i did was simple online work from comfort at home for 3-4 hours/day that I got from this agency I discovered over the internet and they paid me for it 95 bucks every hour…

How do you do the curls?
Reply
:iconmoggymawee:
moggymawee Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2016  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
To be honest, it's kinda hard to explain - essentially I just imagine the curl in 2D, pattern them, and sew them one by one.

This looks wonderful D: !!! Why am I just seeing this? You did a wonderful job on this pony, and all of those details are love!! :heart::heart:

May I ask what kind of paint you used to airbrush her with? Will that fall off if you clean her? She's so pretty!

The paint doesn't shift since I heatset it after letting it airdry.  I used Golden Artist Colors & Createx for this pony ^^

Saw this while browsing plushies for expression ideas.

I like the mane and leg gradients. The mane is complex for sure, but mine is probably more complex. She said herself "the mane and tail, I'll be sewing little bolts for days" and I have to go apologize to her now for that.
