After months of work, my pony pattern is now available for sale on etsy! :D

There are two versions available. The $15 version is the physical pattern and shipping in the US. The $20 version includes the physical pattern (with shipping in the US) and a PDF emailed to you! Edit: Due to popular demand from overseas I've added a $15 PDF only option. That listing comes with an extra sneak peak at my most recent test pony! ;)

You can purchase it here in my etsy shop.

Thank you so much for all your amazing support and patience! :D

Edit: Totally forgot to mention! Since I expect there to be a bit of a rush *little scared here*, I'm going to be dealing with the first few days of orders as a batch and shipping them next Monday. Oops! I mean I'll be shipping them on Tuesday morning since Monday is a federal holiday and the post office is closed! -_-'


Tiny Little Pattern FAQ

Q: What will the pattern include?

A: The pattern includes: a heavy duty bag to protect everything, a coversheet with the pattern name / fabric recommendations / line drawings of ponies, 7 pages of instructions with step by step details on sewing ponies as well as a tips and tricks section with notes about stuff I find helpful, 5 pages of pattern pieces that will allow you to construct a female pony with two different manes/tails, a unicorn horn, and four possible styles of pegasus wings.

Q: What do the included manes / tails look like?

A: They look like the ones on this pony valleyviolet.deviantart.com/ar…? and this pony valleyviolet.deviantart.com/ar…?

Q: How big are the ponies?

A: A finished pony stands about 9.5 inches tall (not including her hair).

Q: How much fabric does it use? What kind?

A: I recommend 1/2 yard of fabric for the body and head and 1/4 yard for the mane and tail. I've made the ponies with quilting cotton and cotton flannel. I think they will probably work fine in minky, but I haven't tested that. If you haven't sewn plushies before I'd suggest using a quilting cotton for your very first pony since it's easy to handle. ;)

Q: What will it cost?

A: A physical copy of the pattern mailed by first class mail anywhere in the USA is $15. I can also ship priority mail for an additional fee.

Q: Will you ship it internationally? What will that cost?

A: Yes. For an additional $5 I'll ship first class mail wherever you want. If you want priority mail or something else fast it is a lot more expensive (sadly).

Q: Are you selling a digital version of the pattern?

A: Yes. The digital version is available for $15 or there is a package deal of the physical and digital versions together for $20. :)

Q: Where are you selling the pattern?

A: On etsy. >>>>> RIGHT HERE <<<<<

Q: Can I use this pattern to make ponies for my friends / to sell / to light on fire? How many ponies can I make using this pattern?

A: You can do whatever you want with the ponies you make using the pattern. You can make as many as you like. (There can never be too many ponies!) If you sell them, I ask that you pretty please give credit that the pattern was used.

Q: Can I modify the pattern?

A: You can make changes to the pattern for your own personal use.

Q: Can I copy/change the pattern and sell copies?

A: I hope I don't have to say this, but no, please don't do that to me. ;_; There is a license on the pattern (at the end of the instructions) explicitly granting you the right to make copies and modifications for your own personal use. You can even sell/give/lend the pattern to someone else, as long as you give them all your copies of the pattern.

Q: Are you going to make a pattern for male ponies / princess ponies / fillies / zebras / griffins / moar manes and tails / half-monkey half-pony monsters?

A: There are a zillion things I'd like to make patterns for, but I'm burning out just a little bit. I'm part way through developing a male head pattern that will work with the existing pony body pattern. I'm hoping to finish the male head and release it with one or two mane/tail sets. After that I want to start working on a princess or "super model" body/head. I may need to take a little time off first so I don't go mad.

If you want me to work on a pattern for something particular in the future leave a comment and tell me so!

Are you still selling? And what does PDF stand for?
This is my first time sewing a plush, should I get the package with PDF?

Yes, you can get copies of all my finished patterns in my shop: [link]

A PDF is a kind of electronic document. There are free PDF readers for all kinds of computers, so it's a good universal format to share documents in. If you want an electronic copy (that you would print on your own printer) then you'll want to order the copy with the PDFs. If you want a physical copy (I'd send you a physical pattern in the mail) there's a separate listing in the shop for physical versions. :)

Oh! Thank you. (: and I was wondering, do you know where I could get a file for the pony eyes for my embroidery machine?

I don't own an embroidery machine, so I've been collecting links that will hopefully help with this! ;) You have a few options as far as buying files or using tutorials to make them yourself. The links are down in the embroidery section of this journal post: [link]

I do my best to email the digital copies within 24 hours (sometimes it takes closer to 48 if something keeps me away from the net) and physical patterns are likely to be about a week inside the US (sometimes two if the post office gets weird).

How do the digital copies work? Do you still get the instructions and everything?

The digital copies include the instructions, diagrams, and pattern pieces. I basically send you the same PDF files I use to print the physical patterns. ;)
