This was not supposed to be a show accurate plushie.
Now, starting from the start. I've had a while, more than a couple
months, trying to get down the pattern right for an MLP plush. I tried every single pattern, combination, everything and was unhappy with the results. After sitting down and thinking about it for a while, I decided that what was wrong was that, stressing about the accuracy to the show art had made sewing not fun for me anymore.
So after thinking about it some more, I realized that plushie making is just as much fanart as drawing is, and when I draw fanart, I don't try to nail down exactly the way they are, I just try to add my own twist to it, to make it fun and different and exciting for me. That being said, this was so much fun to do and I'm really pleased with the outcome.
Although I do admire the people who make plushies as accurate as possible, I also wish there were more people who'd add their own twist to things, it'd be exciting to see.
As for the technical aspect of it, I decided to construct a pattern that would focus more on the front view of the face rather than the profile view, the problem with all the patterns I tried was that they looked great from the side, and awful from the front. To make it even more frustrating, all of the plushies that I looked up that looked great from the side, had little to no front view pictures, and I consider the front view extremely important so yea.
She's entirely done in minky except for the bowtie, that's satin. The eyes are an extremely lengthy process that I'm too tired to explain right now, but yeah, that's enough of my rant.
Hope you guys like it ;u;
