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!

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

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.

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. :)

Say ... when would you accept commissions?
And... would you ship to the other side of the Atlantic Ocean? :)

Yea that's not a problem ^^ Not sure how much international shipping for one would be, but they are pretty small, so don't think it'd be too much. I'm only accepting commissions for the characters I'm currently making for Bronycon though, any others will have to wait.

And how ironic that my first beanie will also be Derpy. :D Of course she's just embroidered eyes and cutiemarks on fabric now, but at least it's a start! :iconsmilingrarityplz: Do you have anypony in mind yet? :aww:
Also, I'm fairly certain PheiPlushies is a guy, though don't feel bad because I made the same mistake before myself. ^^'
PheiPlushies is definitely a great and friendly guy though. :nod:

Hehe, well technically she's not my first beanie ever, just the one of this batch and new pattern changes. But I was just so itching to make a Derpy! Prolly my favorite lil booger. Lol I totally forgot I was still pending on that response for you! Hmmmmm well you know I do love me some Derpy! (maybe with tiny sockies??) Also Coco, but I'm already getting one of her from serenity-sama. XD

Aww! Derpy beanie with socks sounds cute to me! :iconsweetiebelle-fim: When I finally post my first beanie, feel free to tell me your thoughts and feedback. :thanks: What finally got the ball rolling faster is someone requested a Derpy beanie before they're deployed again. :eager: (Plus a couple other people want a normal Derpy, so I figured I'd do all the embroidery at once.)
Someday I might get to Coco! :iconcocopommelplz:

If you do gets chance to make an extra, I bet that a Coco would go over quite well.
After Maud, she was probably the next most popular newbie.  =)

That's really cool. I love round heads on my ponies and I always feel the rounder the better, since they are a cartoonish design. XD

Really can't wait until after Bronycon for those commissions, too ^_^.
