Delilah Sunstar by fireflytwinkletoes Delilah Sunstar by fireflytwinkletoes
Delilah Sunstar was a commission for Pawscratch, and HOO BOY was she a blast to work on. She's the most fun I've had in a while with a pony. I pretty much love everything about this girl: first and foremost her ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS colors, her body patterning, and her adorably curtain-tie-like tasselled accessories. She is made in two shades of Coral minky (the darker is Shannon, the lighter from Minky Baby Boutique) with my rearing pattern, stands at 16" tall to the top of the head, and has weighted pellets in her tail and feet to maintain a sturdy balance. I pieced her gorgeous sunset gelato mane and tail with Watermelon, Papaya (non-Shannon), Light Orange (non-Shannon, LandOfOh), Sunlight, Topaz, French Blue, Denim, and Slate Purple (non-Shannon) minky. Her accessories are made of Breeze, Papaya (non-Shannon) and Ivory minky. Her necklace is removable.

One, cancer is not something to joke about, neither is autism and also what rules are there that state that this is not allowed on this site?

I thought you'd used spoonflower when I saw the thumb and realised you sewed it all. Insane work!

Haha, thank you :D I have the patience to sew it all, but not to make the fabric design and send it off to Spoonflower :P

It does take a real long time to digitise those files 0_0. If I was only making it once I'd probably do the same. It looks much nicer too

I thought it probably would take a long time - I don't digitise anything, so it would take me even longer to learn it just for that purpose :P

Thanks! I definitely think there are things that airbrushing and fabric paint are appropriate for, but I like using a variety of techniques when possible :)

Yes I agree I just don’t like how fabric paint makes the plush less soft. I try to not use it if I can but will if needed.
