Hi Jazzycreations, I love your upbeat, can-do-anything spirit. : ) Thank you so much for offering to give your sewing skills a try on this project I've been thinking about.
The original seamstress said she had tried fleece but that it was too hard to sew with, and instead she started to use something called Minky? I wonder if you've heard of it? The Minky she used for this Rainbow dash looks pretty good I have to admit.
As for the eyes I did some research and found out a little more about what they were (iron-ons), along with other specifications she used:
"The plushy is made up of Minky Fabric which is VERY soft and plush. The fabric is usually used in baby blankets. The eyes are Iron-Ons, HOWEVER, -- And this is why we suggest a MATURE buyer.... --- The eyes are Iron-Ons, but in the past, when someone got their toy wet the eyes and/or cutie mark bled...
Another thing, this plushy is POSEABLE and she is 12 inches tall by 15 wide!!"
I can't think of anything I'd like changed on it. I'd say that the 3-D hair, height/size, colors, expression, eyes, and all the rest are pretty nice as they appear in the picture. If you need to scale down the size of your practice pony to save time or help in the creation process I'd understand too.
I'm really curious to see what your creative skills can come up with. I hope you have fun with this challenge too and thank you so much for even considering it.
PS - I even might be willing to buy the practice pony if it's pretty cute-- would you be willing to try a practice pony in a G1 Gusty theme (still on a G4 MLP body)? It could be a little one if you just want to spread your creative wings first to get a feel for the pattern.
