MLP_FiM-like Plushie MARE by Meliadhor MLP_FiM-like Plushie MARE by Meliadhor
>>>EDIT<<<
Selling stuff on e-bay? BE A PAL AND PUT A LINK TO THE FREE PATTERN ON YOUR AUCTION so that people at least get a chance of making themselves a plushie for free if they can't afford it!

Used this? SHOW ME THE RESULTS!
>>>O<<<

First of all, I'd like to thank Janice :iconanthropochick: as it was her work, the Leathercraft Pony that reminded me just how awesome (and time consuming) handmade plushies are. The "That's a really awesome pony, I want one too" feeling I had while looking at her work was what forced me to get back, after a over 10 year long break, to plushie making. Thank you!


A4 page, print, paste on cardboard (grid paper, make sure the large squares are 1cm(2) in size) cut & use to make your ponies. Safety edge of about 3 to 2 mm included. Note, the finished toy is about 12 cm tall, so pulling the material inside-out WILL be hard and some materials WILL tear. Works OK with leather & linen, you may have to add extra 2 mm for cotton or wool.

FOR SEWING INSTRUCTIONS please refer to this page [link] featuring scanned instructions for pony\puppy plushies.

FOR WIP PHOTOS AND GENERAL TIPS\INFO try the ponychan thread [link]

Note, I'm usually modifying the main pattern as I go, you may need to add some stuff there, the (sorta) blue rectangles at the end of pony hooves are something like that, basically a 1cm extension that you may wish to keep if you want to GLUE the round hoof part B_03

PARTS: B_01 = outer body, B_02 = inner body (belly), B_03 hoof (sole?), H_01: A = head used for Raggedy Mare, B = Applejack, C (in blue ink) = WIP for stallions, H_02 = face\forehead etc, E = ear.
Example bodies: Wing pattern by :iconshauntinasha: IF YOU HAVE A HORN PATTERN OR FAQ - PLEASE SHARE IT!

Finished toys made by me are around 12 x 5 cm \ 4.7 x 2 inch, about the size of a human hand.

If you make any major changes POST THEM (sorta like this) so that others may use them too. Also, you used this? Show me the results! I'll be happy to see them!

If you have any questions regarding the pattern feel free to ask them.

THIS IS A FREE PONY PATTERN AND IS TO REMAIN FREE OF CHARGE, THE IDEA BEHIND THIS IS SO THAT EVERYONE COULD MAKE A PONY FOR ONESELF FOR FREE, ANY AND ALL COMMERCIAL USE WILL RESULT IN YOU ENDING UP ON ONE OF THE MOONS OF JUPITER.

MLP:FiM (C) Hasbro, this is but a fanmade pattern showing a vague resemblance to the actual Hasbro-made plushies.

Pardon me, a friend of mine wanted to make some Equestria Girls plush, do you know any patterns for hands? Hands with fingers, at least 4 would do.

Hej, wiem że jesteś z Polski, więc postanowiłam pisać po Polsku.
Nigdy nie robiłam pluszaków, i dopiero chce zacząć, więc mam pytanie: Skoro on już ma ciałko razem z kopytami, to po co mu znowu nogi O.o ? 
Pozdrawiam :)

I am considering using this pattern for a pony plush (which I've been wanting), and I would like to recommend a horn pattern I found while working on a vinyl scratch cosplay. You may need to play around with size, but I found it to be quite handy www.instructables.com/id/Make-…

My question is the following :

What's the size of the paper the pattern is drawn on?

The plushie i want to make using this is larger than 12x5 so i presume i should ask for a larger print of the pattern.

I mean i see that it's an A4, but the actual "canvas" part is smaller than the paper.

I think a horn would just be a triangle shape and a sphere put together into a cone, and then stuffed by itself so it can stay upright. Then sew it in/on.

This is a pretty stupid question but... How exactly does that forehead piece work...? ^^;
Reply
:iconfallenpeach:
Fallenpeach Featured By Owner Apr 1, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Hi, I think I can help you out c: You're supposed to sew the forehead to the 2 head pieces. (I'd recommend hand sewing the head, because using a machine to do this is very difficult, because you have to sew on an angle.)

This picture will help show you where the forehead piece goes [link] The steps can be a bit hard to follow.. So I'll try my best to explain them here :] So, you cut out 2 head pieces, and 1 forehead piece. The pointy part on the forehead piece is where you'll start sewing. (This is important: make sure the fabric is facing the wrong way when you start sewing, because you'll be flipping the head when you're done)

You sew the pointy part to the tip of the nose on one of the Pony head pieces. Then just keep sewing along the head until you reach the back of it. Then go back and sew the next Pony head piece together with the other side of the forehead piece. Make sure to leave a space under the head too, so you can flip it and sew it to the neck.

Sorry if I didn't explain it very well D: I hope this helps :] if not, you can ask me anything and I'll try my best.

Excuse me for asking, but what stitch do you use to sew on the forehead piece ( before you turn it inside-out)?

Just a regular straight stitch :]

I know this is a tad late, but if you plan on using the pattern again, try using more stuffing in the legs so it can stand better, unless you want floppy-pinkie-ponies [link]

After browsing DA for all day looking for custom mlp's, repainted vinyldolls and bjd faceups, this was the first idea that came up to me when I wanted to do something "other than computering" :D I'm going to make mine a (rein)deer, let's see how that will work out.

I sure do appreciate this pattern. My daughter is 2 and loves Pinkie Pie so this is a Christmas gift for her. I have gotten this basic form sewed together and I can see many changes I would make. Next time (if I ever make another on), I won't cut out the bottom portion into a hoof shape, I'll cut it as a straight leg. Also, the ears don't seem quite wide enough, and the head is not rounded enough after you sew it. Several people are telling me that my doll looks like Bambie or Rudolph. I agree. So there are a few changes I would make to make it more like a pony. But for a 2 year old toy, I'll let her wear this one out and perhaps make her a better one later.
But again, thank you so much for the pattern, without it I would not have known where to start.
