So cute! I want to try to make a pony plushie for a friend of mine,but Ive never made a plush like this before.Im really afraid its not going to turn out well ^^' Would you have any advice..?

Thank you! And my advice would be if you are new to plushie making then use someones pattern/tutorial. I had to do the same when I 1st started because I had never made a plush of any kind and had no clue where to even begin lol! I have been finding lots of really nice patterns for small and big ponies on DA as well as some really lovely patterns with tutorials on Etsy.com.

If you decide to try it out the best advice I can give is, since it's a new thing take it slow! Don't worry about going slow with your stitches to make sure everything is even and nice. Don't hesitate to redo something if you think it's too messed up to try to cover up :P Also the bigger the plush is then the easier it is to sew. Sewing small plushies is generally harder to sew on a machine and turn. Feel free to send me a note if you run into complications and need help!

Good luck and thanks :)

This looks great! but...how do you do the eyes? tutorial?

SailorMiniMuffin Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
I actually use my embroidery machine for the eyes. I do know of a couple of people who have put up really nice hand embroidery tutorials before. I don't remember the names off the top of my head but I bet if you search for it in DA you would find them!

I still have not recieved her. o.o I am hoping Spitfire comes in tomorrow. It bothers me so much as the USPS here is so messed up I only receive about half the packages that get sent to me through them. I generally tell peeps to fedex or ups stuff to me. USPS just keeps telling me they will investigate it and I never hear anything back about it. I have had random people come up to me while I am at work and ask me if torn up packages they had found on their doorsteps belonged to me. u.u, It got to the point that sprint specials packages and return kits through DHL to me. O.o I kinda had a hand there, but its kinda awesome that DHL actually waits for me to repack something ( sometimes helps me if I am short on supplies ) before leaving so I don't have to file a pickup request.

I am hoping she makes it to you safely too! Thats extremely frustrating to have shipping issues, a few months back UPS wouldn't bring me my boxes with my fabric in it and later I found out it was because of some issue with the previous resident in our house. Please keep me updated though. I would like to know if you get her tomorrow or if there's any issue.
