Thank you so so so so much for having these pattern and tutotirals. I'm a beginner at sewing plush. And my 4yr and 2 yr wants one made by me. So It's nice to start off with something small. Then I'll try to advance to the bigger ponies..lol. wish me luck..
Definitely fleece! Felt, especially craft felt, will show stitches and cotton is a woven material with no stretch to it. Fleece will plump out nicely when you stuff it, and the fuzzy surface hides stitches.
