There are a lot of 3D plush ponies out there, but I'm just not that talented. I can, however, cut out two pieces of fabric and make a pillow. So I just expanded on that. This is my very first MLP inspired plush. I don't even know if you'd call it a plush, but whatever. She's approx. 10 inches high. All the horrible mistakes aside (I didn't leave NEARLY enough room to sew when I cut out my pattern... and her mane and tail are a lot thinner than I wanted), I'm fairly pleased with the first run through. The final products of the "mane" six will just have their cutie marks hand embroidered on. Very simple design, but that's what I'm going for with these. Anyway, don't be too harsh.

Her name is Pin Cushion because that's what she is now  Grin

Here's my first attempt at Rarity. I've decided I'm going to paint on the cutie marks and eyes instead of trying to hand sew them on. I wasn't even going to do eyes, but I figure as long as I have the paint I might.

Finished Applejack. I painted on her cutie mark.

Then I decided I would try my hand at the eyes.

I like it!

Gave Rarity eyes as well, and removed the stitched cutie mark and replaced it with paint.

And now Pinkie Pie!

I think its really cute. You should add a felt tomato (you know like the pincushion kind) for its cutie mark.

Cute.  I like her silhouette so you must have made a nice pattern.

This is awesome! I think you did a great job. My daughter would flip for this (her 20-year-old uncle would, too, actually; he's what is known around the internets as a "brony"). If this is how great your first try came out, I'll be really excited to see the future ones!

Thanks! I know a couple of bronies myself  Grin

I told my lawyer husband what I was doing, and he was like "Those are copyrighted" and I told him about all the amazing minky ones that people sell for upwards of $300 so I didn't think Hasbro would notice little ole me.

Update! Pinkie Pie, Rarity, and Applejack have been done. Going to make Twilight Sparkle next, and Fluttershy and Rainbow Dash after the felt comes in for their wings.

Haha, if you feel like making an industry of it you could probably sell the pattern to hasbro! They're adorable, really.

These are really cute! You know, if you wanted to practice 3D plushes, there are quite a few free pony ones out there! That's where I started ouo

My two year old son has discovered my little ponies and my goodness does he love that show.  I joke all the time about him being a brony...I love your dolls, and you did an awesome job on the eyes!  These are great and I can't wait to see your future ones.
