My Little Pony Octavia Plushie by WhiteHeather My Little Pony Octavia Plushie by WhiteHeather
I've finished my latest plushie, Octavia from My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. Since there isn't a really nice dark grey minky that I've found (her body is the darkest grey that is readily available) I went with black for her mane and tail. Her eyes are appliqued satin and her cutie mark is appliqued minky. Her little bow tie is removable. The commissioner requested that I make her with no mouth so if you notice something different than my other plushies, that's probably it!

Her mane was a real challenge to pattern. Those poofy poofy bangs were pretty difficult to make look right! At least if I ever decide to make a standing Octavia with a cello I'll have the pattern all figured out for her hair now though!

I'm actually not taking commissions at the moment. When I do take commissions I prefer to discuss prices privately.

I was looking through pictures of Lyra and I saw one of your plushies. These plushies are just so... so... *jawdrop*

So I'm wondering, how much would a commission be so I could start saving up for one?
All of these are just pure awesome :D

Commission prices vary a lot based on what you want, but please send me a note about that. However, it's going to be a very long time before I will be available to do commissions again. I'll be posting a journal about this soon explaining the commission situation :)

You can commission one when I'm open for commissions, but I'm closed at the moment and I'm not sure when I'll reopen.

I have links at the bottom of my Deviant ID section to patterns by other artists if you want to give it a go. I don't think it's hard, but I've also been sewing for over 10 years so I have rather a lot of practice :)

This was a commission and is already sold. My commission prices are on my front page. They are much more than $120 because of the time and materials cost it takes.

and now I have stopped dying because of that awesome, I have a question. Two of them. How did you make the hair, and how do you make the mouth?

:iconwhiteheather:
WhiteHeather Featured By Owner Jun 12, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
What specifically about the hair do you want to know? If it's about the lines in her hair those are a very tight zigzag stitch on the machine.

The mouths I hand embroider on after the heads are made.

Alright. I am going to be making a plushie and I have no idea how to make the hair. I dont want it to be just random yarn, I want it to actually look like the pony's hair, like yours does. And I have no idea how to make it. Any advice you can give would be extremely helpful

:iconwhiteheather:
WhiteHeather Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2012  Professional Artisan Crafter
Do you know what character you are going to make? Some have much easier hair to do than others. What I do is look at vectors/screenshots of my characters and examine the hair shape. For the most part tails and the part of the hair that hangs down are just two pieces of fabric in the basic shape of the hair that are sewn together. Tails are stuffed, manes usually have a thin layer of batting to give them a bit of definition but still keep them flat. Often I'll also machine sew lines though the layers of the mane if the character has any lines drawn in her hair.

The bangs are usually where it gets harder. If you look in my scraps you'll see a picture of Octavia with paper bangs as I was figuring out the pattern for them. I use paper towel for this because it drapes more like fabric than other paper. Octavia's bangs are made out of six different pieces to get that shape. Many other characters have much simpler bangs though. Twilight's bang shape just takes two pieces of fabric sewn together to make them. The stripes are the only hard part there.

If you know what character you are going to do I might be able to offer more specific advice on the hair!

alright. that helped a lot! the character im going to try and make is Blackjack from Fallout Equestria: project horizons. I like her character,and I already have the white fabric, so I decided to make her. The advice you gave actually is amazing help. I shall try and start practicing on the hair soon.

Black for Mane and Teil was perfectly fine. In the end it comes down to the contrast and in all honesty, best Octavia I ever seen. And there were some.
