Octavia Custom Plush

:bulletyellow: Tavi is made from silver and ash minky.  

Her eyes and cutiemark were embroidered with a Brother Innovis 750D embroidery machine, Madiera Rayon embroidery thread, and Bernina V6 embroidery software. The eyes were designed and digitised by me. Her pattern was also designed by me. Her hooves contain poly pellets so she can stand well on her own. She is 17 inches to the top of her head. She has flat hooves and 3d sculpted ears. Her bowtie is not removable. 

Please do not ask for the pattern, under no circumstance will I be giving it out. 

I had time to pass waiting for commission fabric to arrive, so I sieved through all my excess fabric and decided to use some of it. Man I wish I could keep this girl.. I just love how she looks in my new pattern, and her design is just beautiful. I think she's a stunning plush :). I loved working on her. (that satin stitching tho 0_0) 

She IS for sale, so check out her ebay link above and please share with all your tavi loving friends XD

PLEASE zoom in to check out her details! 

Please comment/fav. It means allot to me. I read every comment and do my best to reply. 
I have not asked for critique. Any critique is not appreciated. 

:star: Watch me or check out my journal (and tumblr) to see WIPs of this and other current projects. 


I am currently working on other plushes. Keep an eye out on my page if you are interested in owning any of my future plushes.

Did you make a vinyl scratch plush? It would be REALLY awesome if you did

What a gorgeous girl! Her mane looks lovely. And her expression is adorable.

About how much fabric does it take to make a pony this size?
NazFX's avatar
Thankyou! About half a yard for the body and another half for the mane/tail
DisneyKitten96's avatar
Thanks for the answer! I'm planning to make a pony about this size, and I would've ordered WAY too much fabric.
NazFX's avatar
It's always best to order too much though, because if you stuff up on something you would have no fabric to compensate otherwise :)
DisneyKitten96's avatar
That's true. Thanks for your help!

She's pretty amazing, it's too bad your commissions are closed. Will definitely keep my eye out.
NazFX's avatar
Thankyou! I'll be opening hopefully in a month or so

May I ask how you got the satin stitching to be so tight and actually work with your fabric? *A* I tried it out on a scrap piece of Minky with just a loose zig-zag, all the way up to a super tight stitch to create a solid line, but the tighter the zig-zag, the less the machine pulls the fabric, so it causes the thread to keep going over itself in the same spot, create a ball of stitches. TTvTT

I've read a few things on it, but I'm still a little confused I think! .u.;;
NazFX's avatar
It took me awhile to get it, trust me. 

First do a straight stitch where you want the line to go, this will hold the fabric flat to the cutaway stabiliser you will put on the back of the fabric.
Next, do a loose to medium zigzag over that. And finally do your very tight zigzag (use a walking foot to help pull through). It takes a long time but it's worth it to get good satin stitching

Oh wow, I never would have thought of all that! Thank you so much for the info, I'll have to try it out. :D I was actually planning on going out tomorrow to look at stabilizers, since that's one of the things I read about. You use stabilizers on every single piece that requires that stitch I assume, and across the entire piece? c: I'm still so new at using my machine, there's so much to learn and so little time!
NazFX's avatar
Stabilisers are used if you are doing embroidery or satin stitching. For general sewing you don't need it but all the heavy stitches of the satin stitching need something to hang on to :)
AlicornParty's avatar
That's what I've read, and am personally realizing! XD Thanks again, love~! :hug: :heart:
NazFX's avatar
Feel free to ask about anything anytime ^_^. I know how frustrating all this can be :)
AlicornParty's avatar
I'll definitely take you up on that next time I get super stuck! :blowkiss: <3
