Fluttershy 2013

By thurinus
It's been more than half a year since the last pony, so I thought I'd try making one last plush before the year is over. I expanded the pattern to be as big as my embroidery machine would allow designs to be large, and tried some new sewing procedures that allowed me to machine-sew everything save for the tail onto the body, and the hole through which I turn the plush inside-out. I also used magnets to hold her mane in place, a clever technique I stole from *GreenTeaPlushies

The bottom picture compares my first full-coloured minky plush from September 2012 with the new one. Fluttershy was my first minky pony, so it's only fitting that she be the guinea pig for the new pattern :)

Fluttershy 2013 is 17" tall.

Edit: got a better mugshot

it looks really well made. I love how big it is.

Thanks! I'd love to eventually make much bigger ones, which would require me to either get a machine that can do larger embroidery designs, or start looking into applique. Baby steps :)
