Fluttershy 2013 by thurinus Fluttershy 2013 by thurinus
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

Thanks! I'd love to eventually make much bigger ones, which would require me to either get a machine that can do larger embroidery designs, or start looking into applique. Baby steps :)

I thought your old Fluttershy was absolutely perfect! But WOW turns out I was wrong. This new one is just above and beyond perfection. Wow wow wowow. And that front few is incredible. Those are just look too cute for words. (And super shiny haha.) :3

She's gorgeous. I love her pattern and how the details even stand out in the thumbnails. I especially love how her tail flows. Simply gorgeous. Do you have to digitize the pattern for the strands on her mane and tail or is that done free handed?

Thanks! I'd actually love to delegate all embroidery to the machine if I could, but the machine can't do anything that big, so I freehand it. :)

Even more amazing. My hand always hiccups a little with satin stitching so that the two sides don't come out the same. practice makes perfect right?
Reply
:iconthurinus:
thurinus Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah, as does going slow, haha. What do you mean by two sides not coming out the same? Either side of a single satin stitch line, or the outcome of the mirrored lines on opposite sides? I still have the same problem if you're referring to the latter... I don't think anyone can ever get it perfect doing it manually.

Yep I mean the mirrored lines. I sketch out the places I want to satin stitch onto interfacing and then stitch a straight stitch to give me some guidance when I satin stitch, but the straight stitch sometimes easily disappears into the minky and since I'm using a zig zag foot instead of a walking, I can also lose sight of the straight stitch leading to some deviation between the two. When it comes to loops like on Pinkie's mane, I'm a lost cause XD

I actually did plan to stop indefinitely to take time to sort out some personal issues. I may be restarting this, but will probably not be as prolific as before.

Thanks!
