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!

they are made out of cotton and are rather small
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 are ADORABLE! I'm thinking of making some plushies my self. If you don't mind me asking, what type of fabric are they made of?

thank you everyone!!! im so happy to hear you like them and some are willing to give sewing a try :D that is so encouraging!! thank you so so much!

now to answer some of your questions :D

- the fabric used is Minky, which is super soft and cuddly and what is usually used with high end plushies

- ofcourse! if others ask you to assemble the kits for them you can ask for payment!  you can sell the plushie you make out of the kits! :D  you can ask what you think would be fair pay for your sewing work :)
that would be grate as then people who dont have the time to sew themselves can have the chance to get one, i can let people know that there will be kind pony fellows selling assambled plushies :)

- i do been considernig making oc ponys, i think it would be so fun! but that may be in the future as my work load goes down a little, right now i have my hands full and making a new pony each time is lots of work :p

- about ordering the body and not the hair, i imagine you may want to give them yarn or pony hair?, so if they were not to come with neither mane nor tail i think i could take special orders for those :) and cost may my decrease a little

btw, different ponies will have different hair styles, there are going to be 3 : curly, straight and wavy, ill show you how the other look in my next photos, sorry for the delay with those, ive been quite busy!


- yes! there will be pegasus!, actually i ended making fizzy a pegacorn/alicorn just to try the wings, haha should have just made a pegasus XD
im also working now on developing a baby and have plans for sea ponies and perhaps flutters with shimmery wings *_*

also! i plan on making non relesaed boy ponies, like boy applejack, minty, firefly and what not, if you have any suggestions which ones i should make first let me know!

- im still checking the costs, after looking around ive seen that most sewing kits are in the $24 range price, so it may be something around that

- yes, im thinking on offering an option with no stuffing although not sure how much that will reduce the price in general, but i think shiping costs would go much lower

regarding the cushions!

they are made out of cotton fabric, teh bigger ones are $18.50 and the smaller ones $16.80
but i got the idea of making them pillow covers, and without all the stuffing they use that would decrease the cost :)
if you like any of the ones i have for sale let me know!


thanks again for all your positive feedback! it means the world to me!! :D

These are absolutely amazing! I love everything happening on your thread!

I'm a little short on funds right now, but sometime soon I would love to get a pillow of Glory's sticker.

And I actually love to sew myself, would you be willing to sell the pattern? Regardless of whether I could sell what I make- I don't think we would be competing, because yours are so pretty, and everything I sew looks shabby. (I like it that way, this isn't meant to be a slam at myself!)  The old G1 patterns are cute, but the faces are all wrong- you got the faces right! Honestly, if those G1 patterns had a dog body but got the face right, I wouldn't be as annoyed. I have so much respect for anyone who can make a pattern- I've tried a few times to make my own patterns for things or to alter a pattern I have, and there is just something about it that doesn't click in my brain.

I will be watching this thread. When my paypal builds itself back up, I'll be messaging you. Thank you for all the trouble you've gone through to make a lovely pony!
Thanks so much to Calico_Star for her beautiful work on my Avatar!

The prices you've mentioned are super affordable, imo. I can't wait to see the others you've made :)

I vote for a boy Bowtie or Bubbles!

thank you for your interest! if all goes well ill be having these ready for purchase on a couple of weeks, i should have several characters ready by then :)
ill make a post here about it when they are ready including a link to the store

here are some photos of the new ponies, the color is off due to bad lighting, my apologies for the bad quality, all the rain hasnt helped taking good photos :P

the boy pony is bigger than the girls, i already plan on making all the mountain boys :D

as you can see there will be 3 different hairstyles,  curly like fizzy has, wavy (although ill give buttons curly hair too) and stright like gusty has.
i gave fizzy wings to show you how pegasus ponies would look like :D

hope you like them!

These are amazing!  Eyes are spot on!   You're taf ponies are to die for!  The sticker pillows are a great idea too, though I agree with you that there might be some copyright issues.
