It's been more than half a year since the last pony, so I thought I'd try making one last plush before the year is over. I expanded the pattern to be as big as my embroidery machine would allow designs to be large, and tried some new sewing procedures that allowed me to machine-sew everything save for the tail onto the body, and the hole through which I turn the plush inside-out. I also used magnets to hold her mane in place, a clever technique I stole from *GreenTeaPlushies
The bottom picture compares my first full-coloured minky plush from September 2012 with the new one. Fluttershy was my first minky pony, so it's only fitting that she be the guinea pig for the new pattern
Fluttershy 2013 is 17" tall.
Edit: got a better mugshot
