Miss Smartypants plushie by Voodoo-Tiki Miss Smartypants plushie by Voodoo-Tiki
It's Miss Smartypants, Twilight Psycho's childhood best (only?) friend!

Doin' her homework with her little notepad here: [link]

I've made a lot of wonky stuffed animals, but this is the first one that's terribad on purpose. It was . . . liberating LOL

For something so derpy she took a lot of work. In the show it looked like she was supposed to be made of burlap, but burlap is scratchy, stiff, and nearly impossible to sew. Instead I used monk's cloth, which looks coarse but is actually quite soft to the touch, although it still frays like crazy (if I make another, I'm using interfacing). The store only had dark brown and off white, so I dyed it to about the right shade. And of course they had white polka dotted fabric in every color except blue, so I painted the dots on myself. It ended up making her look even more beaten up, so it's all good. She's nice and floppy and as you can see from the pile of books, good sized, too.

EDIT: Since everyone's saying it, she took about 7 hours to sew, minus breaks. Not THAT fast, although she is pretty much composed of simple shapes.

I'm looking for someone to make a Smartypants-Rainbow Dash. Same design, only blue with a rainbow mane. This is for a theatrical production for Melbourne Fringe Festival. Can you help me?

This style is so adorable for a plushie! I really adore the older almost vintage look to it, makes it really unique and different.

Great work!

I know you said you plan to eventually post a pattern - and making one, especially with instructions, takes a lot of time. However, would you be willing to post a rough draft? A pen sketch showing the basic shapes (pants not needed) would help me get the idea down. Or do you have any photos? I've looked at all the pictures and I'm still stuck on the "less basic" parts.
Specifically, I was wondering about the end of the nose (darts? a special-cut shape for the fabric?) and if there is anything hidden under the ears (are they hiding more darts?). Also, ignoring the pants, is the torso basically just two pieces all the way down, including her butt? Or is there a separate "bottom" piece? Or is it just more darts that round out the bottom? (In case you can't tell - it's the darts that I can't fake myself.)
Thanks for your time, even if it's just reading my note.
