Finally making some progress! Still have a couple pattern adjustments to make/embroidery file adjustments, but I'm hoping to crank these little boogers out. I'll be making the mane 6, Derpy, Maud and a Milky. I mighttt add one more character if I get enough requests.

I'm taking a few pre-orders now for these if you're planning on going to Bronycon. (Maybe I'll take one or two from people who aren't going too)

I'm thinking about $120-$130 for these little guys. They are about 7 inches tall when standing (Derpy is a little smaller, I might just keep her or give a discount on her since she was my first test) They sit, stand, and lay down like my plushies normally do. Just send me a note!

Also a huge huge thank you to :iconpheiplushies: who digitized all these tiny cutie marks, and just in general awesome and stuff. (You should totally go commission her)

Ohh wow, I love these! They're so cute! I'd totally love a Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy and a Vinyl Scratch (probably an Octavia, too, lol) from you sometime. I unfortunately cannot attend any cons this year, though, so I'd have to commission one afterwards... I do have one question, though: is there a reason they're so high in price each? I understand making plushies is difficult and time-consuming, I was just wondering if it was the cost of the fabrics used or what you were basing their price on? And if the tiny ones are that much, how much would larger ones be, if you could give me a price estimate? I'd love to have some of your plushies, it'll just take forever to save... I've got a new daughter due in August and I currently am a medical student but no job yet, so... money is... tight, eheh. I'd still be happy paying full price for such nice plushies ^-^ I was just curious.

Oh I'd be happy to make an Octavia and Vinyl as well, I was pretty close to making them for the con too, but I just didn't have enough time to pattern their hair and get their embroidery all worked out.

I feel bad for them being so high, but I really wouldn't be able to take any less for them. ^^; They are nearly as detailed as my large ponies, so they still take a good amount of time to sew together. As I've timed it so far, they take me around 12-15 hours or so for each beanie (just sewing/embroidering, so not including any time previous to that patterning or digitizing/testing embroidery files) Material costs for the beanies aren't so bad (probably about $15-$20 or so) They do take about about half the time and materials than my normal sized plushies (14 inches) so their price is about half as much. I could make a simplier pattern with button eyes and simplified hair that would take less time, but I'd rather go all the way and make them accurate and detailed. XD

Here is my commission info: docs.google.com/document/d/1n5… Sorry for such the rambling!

Ah, that makes much more sense! Thanks tons, I really appreciate it. :) I'm just learning to sew plushies myself, so I get interested in prices and such. They're so cute though, don't feel bad about the high pricing! I'll gladly save up enough to purchase one from you sometime in the future. It's great that you put such work into them. It may take me a while to have the extra money for one but I'm gonna be so happy when I can finally order one. ^-^ Good luck at BronyCon! I hope you sell lots of the little cuties!

Are you planning on posting a picture of your stock for the con? I'd love to see them all!

I just posted one actually! I only have 7 right now... but I should have at least 3 more done before the con. Little things took way longer than I expected. Are you going to bronycon too? If you want to see them all you might want to catch me before friday. XD

Oh gosh, they are beautiful! 
I actually have a friend who will be going and picking things up for me, because I couldn't afford to travel out this year. I'm assuming there isn't any chance you'd be willing to put one on hold? ^^;

Which one were you wanting to get? I don't mind holding them if you pay in advance. c: If anything though, I still have a bunch more beanies embroidered already, so I'll be finishing and selling them after the con as well.

Oh, wow, really?
Have Rarity or Fluttershy been spoken for yet? If not, would it be too much work to see a picture of another angle of them so I can decide? ^^;

Nope they are still available c: I'm planning to make a 2nd flutters as well. I still have to finish attaching their hair and pick the fur out of the seams, but when I do I'll be taking solo pics of each of them. So just give me a couple days. If one of them gets bought I'll make another one of whoever you choose. :)
