Beginner Pony Plushie Tutorial by Voodoo-Tiki Beginner Pony Plushie Tutorial by Voodoo-Tiki
Pattern page one: [link]
Pattern page two: [link]

You'll need 1/3 yard of material, matching thread, and the usual sewing equipment (scissors, thread, etc). Machine not required - I sew everything by hand. This makes an 8-inch tall pony, but the pattern can also be enlarged or shrunk; adjust material requirements accordingly.

This is as simple as I can make the pattern and still have it look decent! Anyone who can knows the basics of sewing will be able to use this.

If you don't know how to backstitch or ladder stitch, there are several tutorials here on DA and on YouTube.

Can I sell it? Not on deviantart, but in real life.

Thanks for the great pattern. Here's my first attempt at a pegasus stallion: smithers888.deviantart.com/art…

I used felt which, as mentioned below, is not the best choice, but it was the cheapest. I think it didn't work out too badly for a first attempt.

One issue I did have with the pattern was that the neck on the belly piece wasn't really long enough to reach the chin - the distance from E1 to the unlabelled marker between E1 and E2 is further on the body side pattern than on the belly pattern. I guess a positive of using felt is that I could stretch it enough to make up for the difference.

I think I can see why you prefer tacking to pinning. I used pinning the whole way through this and had a few moments where it was difficult to get the pins in place without causing the fabric to bend out of place. Not to mention the number of times the thread got caught on the pins while I was trying to pull it through.

the bit about attaching the back of the head to the neck/body is very confusing and getting me stressed, I dont understand the whole folding the head piece back and sewing from a5 to a6, help!!

If it's just for practice you could try doing a blanket stitch from the inside, or a regular one from the outside if it's already sealed.

Hey, I know you were probably alerted of my plushie, since I gave you a mention in the description, but I'll link it here too in case other people want to see it (I know I like to see what other people make out of this pattern!).

I may have misunderstood the pattern but I cant find how to sew the belly, do I just sew them together or re add the piece we cut out? otherwise I'm almost done! ^^

You just sew that hole together - it closes the turning gap and draws the legs under the body.  :)

It can work with felt, but it's definitely not the best material. I didn't have much trouble with it for the majority of the work, but I did have the stitches pulling through when closing the back of the head and when embroidering the wings.

I tried it and ya the seams show really bad, but it was great practice none the less. ^^

Felt is a really bad material to use because it's very thick and inflexible, and the stitches will actually pull through the material. I'd suggest fleece instead.

The head is in 4 parts, which is easier than a 3 part head, the under-leg gussets are merged into one opening, and there's no bottom to the hooves. If you look at the patterns, you can see.

What is the etiquette for using pony patterns? They are all over the internet, and they all seem basically the same. Someone told me the other day that they know some people that would be interested in OC ponies, but I don't know what patterns are OK to use and sell. I normally make my own patterns, but I really don't see the point in making my own when my finished pattern will probably look like everyone else's. 
I thank you in advance for a reply, 
Chels

I can only speak for me personally - I distribute under the Creative Commons ShareAlike license, which basically means you can sell plushes made from the pattern but cannot sell the pattern itself, or a pattern you design derived from it (you can freely distribute the derived pattern, though). I ask that people who use it mention it was made by me, so other folks wanting to use the pattern can find it.

Mirroring the wings just means you flip over the pattern. If you're making a stuffed mane, I have a whole tutorial here: voodoo-tiki.deviantart.com/art…

i used this pattern to make an earth pony it came out very nice. (its my first shot at making any sort of plushie lol) thank you so much for the pattern. :) i did have one question tho..how would i make the unicorn? i got a lil confused on how and if it ends up becoming a point in the end cause i worry if i sew on the outline it will become a box shape. o.o this is only my second attempt at making a plushie sorry if there stupid questions..

:iconvoodoo-tiki:
Voodoo-Tiki Featured By Owner Feb 22, 2014
The tip of the horn looks boxy, but when you turn it right-side out the bulk of the seam will make it come to a point! And don't worry, there's no stupid questions :)
