Did you hand embroider the detail on the tail and mane? If you did it with the machine I totally worship you!

It's just a straight stitch on the machine... definitely easier than hand-embroidery :P I worship folks who can and have the patience to hand-embroider!

You make it so flawless!! You throw a curve at me while sewing on the machine and I end up with a 90 degree angle!! XD Great job either way and we shall both worship those who hand embroider!

It helps to have a good sewing machine - I used to sew on a Singer Classic (full analog) and I reckon I wouldn't have the same kind of control I have with my current Brother LB6800PRW/SE-400.

Doesn't Violet's pattern have darts where the back joins the front (from what I've seen of others' creations)? Did change their locations, or completely take them out?

thurinus Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yeah it does - you can see a little crimp where the dart is on the 2 bottom pictures. Keep in mind I've done some tweaks, so not everything would be verbatim to the original pattern.

Ahh, I think I see them. Rotated to a > almost? I'm surprised, the fabric hides it very well in the picture. It's very nice work.

Hey!

Very, very nice! Which parts have you modified? I wanted to go from violet's pattern too and wanted to do some modifications myself.

thurinus Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Thanks :) Practically every part but the shoulders and front legs were modified to some degree, with the head getting the most. The most obvious modification is enlargement of the head, and specific width adjustments along the muzzle and forehead to define a perkier nose and a rounder front look.

Thank you for the answer :).. Kinda excited to start sewing... The headsize and shape is the same on every female pony, or are there slightly different shapes? Thanks again :)..

If/when I get to them, I'm going to stick to the same sizes and shapes... pretty much like what they do in the cartoons :)

How much would a Pinkie like this be?

thurinus Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I haven't given much thought to this, but I can't imagine any amount I can think of now would be fair to anyone :P It's like being asked to place a price on a child - I'm too attached to the few I've made right now :(

:icongreepix:
greepix Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012  Student General Artist
Okay, I see what you mean! The reason I ask is because my sister and I wanted to start selling them, and we were wondering how much you'd price them at.

Also, how did you sew the hair on? LOL sorry, we're noobs.

:iconthurinus:
thurinus Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
In that case, I'd probably throw out a number that may be unfair to you ;)

Ladder stitch, but I reckon you could machine stitch the tail on if you're creative. I ladder stitched Pinkie's tail on, but I prefer to machine stitch wherever possible, and I have an idea for how that I want to try. I'm a noob too.

Okay thanks! To sew on the tail and mane, would you sew it on from the inside out?
Reply
:iconthurinus:
thurinus Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
If I can stuff the tail and reach the root far in enough to machine-sew the tail on while the body is inside-out, I would :)
