Carrot Top/Golden Harvest Plushie

I felt super motivated after finishing all my commissions, so I decided to work on my own poor neglected Carrot Top/Golden Harvest plushie which I started working on several months back ^^".  She stood bald on my sewing desk for what seemed like forever!

Anyway, I'm super super happy she's finally finished!  And that I can add another pony to my collection!  ;)

I'm not sure why, but I'm just completely and utterly obsessed with this background pony!  Honestly!  And I don't even like orange/yellow x3 I just feel so blissful looking at her :) with her luscious golden locks and all (she kinda reminds me of Braeburn, who's my favourite stallion from the show).

All her curls are 3D (so they are not just topstitched in).  Carrot Top's forelock was a  lot trickier to get right than I'd anticipated, but I'm extremely pleased with the end result!  She just looks sooooo adorable!!!  >.< I love her so much!  *hugs Carrot Top plushie a million times*.

I decided to go with shannon mango minky for her mane/tail (rather than the usual orange).  I just feel shannon orange is a bit "too" orange for her... her mane/tail is more like a golden/sunshine orange in my opinion :S

Anyway, I hope you guys like her as much as me!  She was so much fun to make!!!!!  ^_____^ it's nice to be able to sew something for myself again :)

*Materials: cuddle 3 minky by Shannon Fabrics
*Minky colours: vanilla, mango
*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 16" tall, 16" long
*She has my signature embroidered into the bottom of her front left hoof

Now for some quick announcements!  ^^  I've decided to delay opening my commissions until December.  I really enjoy having time to sew for myself again, so I want to make use of that a little longer :P I still have to finish my poor bald and neglected Fantastia/Lucid Tone OC.

I have tried to reply to most messages/notes/comments, but there are still a handful left so I'll be replying to them later this afternoon!!!  :3

Anyway!  Hope you all have a great weekend!  ^______^

So glad to see her finally finished!  Oooh, she's adorable!  The work you put into those curls really shows, but would you just look at that tail?!  I love how it curves around so much.  It reminds me of your earlier work with Pinkie Pie's forelock and Fluttershy's tail; they had long, almost exaggerated, curves to them as well.  It's part of your style I've always liked.  I think I even called it "woosh" with your recent Beauty Brass plush.  Your plushies got "woosh," girl! ;D

Really fantastic job!  :D

Lol!  :) that's a very interesting way to put it!  :P "woooooosh"!  Thank you so very much for liking her!  Especially her curls!  They're my absolute favourite things about her!  And it was definitely a lot of fun sewing them & seeing them take form!!!!  Hurray!  My plushies have the "woooooosh!!!!!!!"  haha xD

I'm soooo sorry I didn't comment on this earlier, or on the last one, or even the one before that! I'm not dead! I'll make this one extra good!

those colours!! Every time I see mango minky, I love it even more! And boy am I glad you didn't use orange, that would have been overpowering her gorgeous yellow! I don't even like yellow or orange! And I love the change from a yellow minky to a kind of subtle cream, it looks great on her, and lets that gorgeous orange stand out!

Those eyes still look sooo big Moggy! They're gorgeous! Are you sure your eyes haven't gotten bigger? Or maybe the heads smaller? They're massively gorgeous!

Those curls look like they were impossible! There are so many, and they're soooo cute! They're teeny! And that tail is sooo elegant! It's like a nice flowy cascade of curls!

I'm out, or else I might catch the diabeetus!

Thank you so much!  :) and don't worry!  I've been pretty MIA on DA myself :P  I'm happy you agree with my minky colour choices!  ^__^

And yea, the eyes are not bigger than usual, and the head size is the same, I haven't changed my pattern at all since I started plushing.  Every plush is handcrafted so inevitably slightly different, eg eye placement/how the hair/mane covers the face so maybe that's why you feel that way?  They all look the same to me :shrug: rvmp

I love her curls too!  they're my absolute favourite part about her!  ^^

I'm super duper happy to have her in my collection!  :)

I'll try to save up my pennies for December!
She's gorgeous! It's good to have a favorite background pony. Mine is "Doc Brown", though I don't know if they've given him an official name yet or not. He looks like the doc from Back to the Future. I adore him.
