Just a Dash (of Awesome) by fireflytwinkletoes Just a Dash (of Awesome) by fireflytwinkletoes
A quick RD while I wasn't doing other things. I tried to make her hair spikier, like it is when she's a filly. I don't really like Rainbow Dash, but I love this plush! The colors are so vibrant, and she's so soft. And her face just makes me want to squish the pudding out of her. The colors in the top right picture are most accurate - I tried some different settings on my camera to try and make the best of the little lighting I had :P

I love your plushies soooo much! They're so adorable. :')

I know you don't give out your pattern and I'm not asking for it because I am using "ValleyViolet's" pattern, but what is the best way to attach the head without having the stitched become noticeable. I just made my first one this week and I'm still trying to get the hang of making plushies, so they can start becoming to look higher quality/professional. My first plushie is hand-sewn/hand-embroidered.

She looks like she could be stuffed a little more firmly, particularly in the head region. Overstuffing the head a little will plump it out more. I just use very fine hand stitches to attach the head - stitches tend to be less noticeable on minky than fleece, so it might be a fabric issue you're having.

Yea, I didn't want to overstuff her and make her look so big, but she is a bit floppy so that's why she's so narrow.

I'll try to use very fine hand stitches next time I make another plushie. And I was also thinking of using minky next time, but is it harder to sew with minky than fleece?

Sorry with the questions, but do you think they sell minky at normal stores like Walmart or Michael's or do I need to buy it online?

Thanks for the advice! :)

Minky actually doesn't stretch as much as fleece, so it can be easier. It's also kind of slippery, though, so you have to be sure to pin things before sewing.

You can buy minky at regular fabric stores, but I've never bought fabric at Walmart or Michael's - I usually go to small local stores, or chains like Fabricland or Fabricana. If you live in the States or elsewhere, there'll be different stores that carry fabric. You can also buy it online (more selection, but that can also be expensive).

Yea, the fleece I was using was really stretchy. And I bought my fabric at Walmart just to see how it would turn out on my first pony, but I'm thinking of buying Minky at a small store near me called, Joans fabrics. I'll see if they carry it.

Thanks for your help! :)

I kind of like her her more tough looking mane when she was a kid. Kind of made her look like she was tough stuff in a sense.

I might consider about it in summer vacation... that should be the period I'm gonna do some vacation jobs in order to get money... However, if the price is acceptable to buy earlier (I'm talking about around 60 dollars) I might still consider to commission you now, unless you really can't sell it for that price... Your decision

Well... This might be good to know... I see you take OC commissions too,
So I might consider about that instead. I'll see...
Anyway, that seems a more affordable price than I've heard anywhere before.
Maybe I'll request a commission in the summer
