Hello everyone!!   :frolic:
im please and super excited to show you this project i been working on for ages now!, i started it years ago, but due to health issues i had to put it aside for quite a while  :drunk: but now that im feeling much better i finally got at it!

as you may or may not know im a ton into plushies and have been a plushie artist for the couple last years, since i first started i really wished to make a super cute lovely G1, it will always be my most loved generation and i never got to have a pony plushie growing up so i really wanted to bring one to life.

also, it came to my attention that while there were lots of people requesting commissions for G4 no one was asking for G1 and most collectors here in the arena mentioned that they couldn't afford the high prices, so i thought on not only making a cute g1 pony that had all the pony feeling on it but also was more affordable to others and here is the result!! :happy:






after hours and hours of work....
 :art:








after days of going crazy fixing details....
 :nerdy:









after several prototypes!...
 :drunk:









and lots of money and time invested....
 :yikes:











hahaha sorry for all the suspense XD
im just so excited!!
 :silly:







these cuties would like to say hi!!......

 :accomplished:

do you like them? do you like them?
i hope i didn't disappoint!
they are my latest prototypes
they have a little couple flaws, i sew them so fast! i was to excited XD

so let get into details, these girls are 9" long laying down, slightly bigger than a regular pony

So here is the thing, i machine sew the girls on the pics, but if i were to sew every pony i made it not only will be tons of work but also prices couldn't be as low,
so... my plan is to sell sewing kits for you to make them!
you would be getting the fabric of the pony of your choice and enough stuffing for it (also eye jewels for twinkle eyes), the pattern will be already on the fabric, so it will be pretty much "cut, sew and stuff!"

they will come with instructions and illustrations to help you assemble them, and don't worry, i designed these their pattern to be the easiest, simplest, and easiest to put together as i could! and also did the best to keep a low piece count :o
you dont really need a sewing machine, they are good projects for intermediate beginners, but you can certainly give it a try if you have never sewn before (i specially had you guys in mind when designing them) would be a good start for those who want to try their hand at plushie making!

i still need to do a couple adjustments to the pattern, and finish the instructions, then ill be opening for preordes to know how man of each to print :D

next time ill show you how the boy pony!!! :D 
he is so handsome!
and a couple new girls!
 :lovey:

im also working on the final price, this is my first time selling sewing kits, and usually my plush work sells for a high price so im still figuring this out, dont be scared though, i dont plan asking as much as mi high end finished plushies XD



what are your thoughts??
do you like how that sounds?



well here is another little project....
pillows made with the G1 stickers!

here is a pony between them to give you an idea about size

is till a bit heastiant about these as they have the names and trademark on them and that could be bad? not sure, any thoughts on that?
im also machine sewing these myself, stuffed and sewn closed
these are up for sale, drop me a message if you are interested

what are your thoughts? should i make more with the other characters?

and what about the pony plushies?? did you like them? ;D
which characters would you like to see first?
i certaily have plans to make the mountain boys and twice as fancy as they are my favorites!! :D


i also have plans on making g4, but that be latter, i have a pattern on progress, but would prefer to focus on this girls and boys first



thanks so far if you have read all the way through!!!!
let me know your thoughts!!

These plushies are so darn cute, especially the way they can pose - Mimic sitting makes me awww!
Plus the idea to sell them as kits is an inspired one, I reckon it would be so much fun to make one of these girls... or boys, can't wait to see them.
I think I'll have to keep an eye on this thread, I might just need a little Posey. Commissioning ponysonas would be sweet too.
I love the sticker pillows too, every couch could use one. ^.^

Oh my goodness, you have done an amazing job on these!! I feel they are squeal worthy, and I don't do that very often!!!  :biggrin: *squeals*
That Mimic is absolutely to die for!!! I think you have a great idea, letting people build their own saves your time, and let's people feel accomplished to finish them!
Can't wait to see what other awesome ponies are next!

Thank you Shaiyeh and Squarepeg for my beautiful siggies!

Those ponies are absolutely precious omg! I'm garbage at sewing but I'd still be tempted to buy a kit and give them a try, they're too cute to pass up! I love the button pillows too! I feel like they might look nice on my couch lol!

These are super cute!!
a few questions.
kits-
-will you be open to having oc ponies too?
-can you order the body and not the hair? (if you want to sew a different hair style- custom work for that would be hard, so just doing it on my own would be the work around)
-if you order without the hair, would the price be a little cheaper?
-will there be a pegasus too?
- how much do the kits cost?
-if we want to bypass on the stuffing is that an option? cheaper?
-if others ask us to assemble the kits for them, are we allowed to ask for payment? (nothing crazy, just want to know if it would be swap box or personal only thing. some people can't sew, so not sure if its a service you'd allow others to do, or if you'd like to partner on that at all)

very excited hoping to get a few. depends on cost of course. i have 2 oc ponies that are pretty much boy versions of gen1 babies. so they are pretty simple, but i have two that are more complicated.
do you create the pattern in the computer? is there a template for creating ocs?

sorry if there are so many questions i just love this idea!! and the ability to sew them myself makes it even more special. I have 4 ponies i collect in every style plush i can afford. so i'm hoping these will join my family!!! love!! great job!!!

Holy plushie, Batman! These are amazing! I would love several plush ponies... first I suggest the TAFs, namely Sugarberry. She's super popular. Personally, I'd love to add Dancing Butterflies, Starshine, and Posey to my collection. And Rosedust flutter pony. Oh! Baby ponies!

Yeah, I'm going to need you to quit being so talented.  You're making the rest of us look bad.  ;)

They are AMAZING OMG!  How did you print the designs on the fabric??

Oh wow, these are SO cute!!  And what a fun idea to sell them as kits.

I love sewing, but I've never tried a plushie on my sewing machine before so this would be a great chance to do that!  I will definitely be keeping an eye on this thread.
