Willow Wisp Plush

Image
I made most of the plushie! I need to attache her head to the neck, put some wire/pipe cleaners/straws into her wings to give them some stiffness. I plan on making them velcro detachable. :) Also need to make the mane and tail. She might be the pony I finish first. :)

I've taken apart Rough Edge's head to re-do it. I dun fudged up sewing it together. It got all bunched up.

Working on Tender Heart's eyes on and off, but I'm putting my pony project away because my parents are coming next week to visit and I need to clean! These make such a mess!

Pony Plush Updates

Image
I've got quite a bit of work done on these.

First is Rough Edges:

This is the first thing I put together with the pattern. The body turned out okay, the head, I made too big. I used a different head pattern than the one included with the body pattern. I think i may nee to take the head apart and do it again. It's still oddly shaped and I screwed up the ears. I've now corrected the pattern for the other stallion heads I have planned. 
Next Willow Wisp
I'm actually a little farther along than this picture suggests. The cutie marks and one eye is sewn down onto the pattern. We'll see how the sewing on this one goes soon. I just have one more eye to sew down. I've been procrastinating on that. 

Sewing all the plushies

Hello again blog. I'm here again.

The sewing table is working out like a dream. It's a great place for snacks AND sewing. :)
My current project is going to take me the rest of summer I feel like. (Steam's summer sale has NOT helped with this.)

I'm working on plush versions of all my current My Little Pony Original Characters. Which are mostly based on pre-existing characters of mine that I've ponified. Some are new though.

 I don't have a machine to do my embroidering. I can't justify the cost of an embroidering machine at this time either. ( I will probably hire someone eventually. ) So for now doing everything by hand.That's the part that's taking five-ever. And I have so many ponies!
Here's the list of ponies I've started work on and those I have planned.

SEWING TABLE!!!

So I've been wanting one of those kick ass sewing cabinets for a long time. You know those $1,000 Kanagroo brand cabinets to store all my sewing...all of it. But I'm short $1,000.

Look at how lovely that is. All my things in one place but yeah...1 grand. 
So I settled for a Sauder...which is about $130. :)
It's pretty lovely. And I got it. It's in pieces in my living room. It's going to be a fun weekend of construction. Yay. Then I can finish sewing my top and clean my living room a bit. 

Updates - Costumes and Crafts

So I've been taking on too many projects again which slows everything down. BUT some cool things that have been going on.


Elven Inquisitor: I decided I wanted to play with Foss Shape just to see how it'll work. I might use that instead of the foam base for the stretch vinyl. I have also got in my order of Worbla Black to create some armor bits...someday. I just haven't been into it right now.

PLUSHIES GALORE!
So I have been sewing plushies quite a bit. I've gotten into sock animals. I made some for my friends with young kids. I've also finished my nephews musical baby elephant. :)
My living room has two LARGE plastic bins just full of fabric. I still want to make some plush ponies and some plush dinosaurs but I've been distracted.
Digital Stuff I've been writing a new visual novel. I don't know if I'll finish it but it does help pass the time at work. I've got tons of art that are sitting on back burners including art for a visual novel I fini…

I'm not saying that I will for sure make these costumes but it's a great way to pass time at work between calls. Just a bit of research.  Maeli Raver Costume

So some sad news, I threw out most of my Tali costume (except for the helmet. i worked too hard on that). My body shape changed a bit so I gotta get on the exercise thing and keep up my figure. Luckily, Quarians are bottom heavy like me. :) Now Maeli is a character of my …
