Mini Pinkie Pie by eebharas Mini Pinkie Pie by eebharas
Pinkie stands at about 7.5 inches tall at the tips of her ears. She's made entirely of minky, stuffed with supreme fiber fill, and has machine embroidered eyes and cutie marks. This will likely be the last time I use this Mini Pattern. Now that I've finally finished making edits to my regular pattern, I'll be making those same changes to the minis.

Pinkie is not for sale!

Question (and feel free to ignore this) do you embroider the eyes/cutie marks before or after you sew the pieces together? I'd like to try my hand at making my own OC pony... but I'm still confused about that part of it... and the hair detail on this one is fabulous! Any tips for a beginner plushie maker on how not to waste the expensive fabric?

I embroider before I put my pieces together. Either way it's the best way to do it to prevent stretching and odd placement, and as I embroider by machine, it's the only way to do it. By hand, I'd say it's still preferable. I still waste fabric sometimes when I just totally fail at a test pattern. If you're really concerned about it, I would say remember that if you use your expensive fabric for a test and the test doesn't work out, that that fabric can still be used for something else. (I use scraps and pieces too small for standard sized plushies for my minis.) If you're using minky, be mindful of the direction of the nap, because the most annoying thing in the world is to sew something together only to realize the nap is upside down.

Ahha- that makes sense... thanks so much! I was wondering if there was a better way to do it than by hand. :D Thanks for the advice!

Do you know how much your minis would cost? specifically an Applejack?

Not yet...Although considering her hat, she would probably be one of the more expensive...that tiny hat takes me somewhere between 4 and 6 hours to make! I absolutely hate it.

oh man that stinks! I could forego the hat, I dun really care about it anyway. Ah well. I'll keep an eye on your etsy and if I happen to have the money then I might get something. :)

Every time you upload something, my heart skips a beat because I see such cute things in my inbox ffff.

I really like how fluffy her main and tail look and her cute little nose! I like that you used (slightly?) muted colours, it makes her look even sweeter because it looks.. soft? I'm really liking it though! As much as I loved you Applejack, I think I'm liking your Pinkie a bit more.

Really looking forward to seeing more of these mini's, especially after the changes are made. Are you planning on doing comissions for these in the future? I wouldn't mind owning one, if that would be possible that is.

Great job once again!

The colors really aren't that muted, my camera is just apparently incapable of capturing hot pink. :/ I'm glad you like it anyway though!:)

I'm planning on making them whenever I can and putting them up in an etsy shop. More than anything else, the minis are a solution to all of the scrap minky I simply can't use on my regular sized ponies. I don't want to do commissions for them, because that would defeat their purpose in existing. They won't be too expensive though! I don't have pricing worked out though...I really suck at it. Thank you!!
