The day of the pony plush pattern release is almost upon us!
Tomorrow evening after work I'll be putting the pattern up for sale on my etsy store. There will be a new journal post tomorrow with a link to the store once the listings are up.
I've got two new test ponies made from the digitized version of the pattern, so I can confirm that it works as well as the original version. I'm working on hair for them, so look for test pony pictures this weekend. Tomorrow you will be able to buy this!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 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. You'll need to pay an additional shipping fee. My research suggests this costs about $5 more for first class mail to most countries. If you want priority mail it is a lot more expensive (sadly).
Q: Are you selling a digital version of the pattern?
A: Yes. There will be a package available with a digital version. (Look for a price tomorrow, because I'm a horrible indecisive person.)
Q: Where are you selling the pattern?
A: On etsy. (Look for a link tomorrow.)
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: Yes. 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 been too many ponies!) If you sell them, I ask that you pretty please give credit that the pattern was used.
Q: Can I copy 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 / 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. Right now 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!
