The old plushie general has been archived.

This is the new one! All things plushie go here - tips, advice, critique, advertising, general questions, etc. etc. Let's try to keep the random threads from popping up and be organized, like Twilight Sparkle would want!

>> No. 130681
What kind of material would work for making eyes?
Would felt work or should I use something else?

I'm using fleece fabric, if that matters.
And I have no idea how to embroider.
>> No. 130687
>>130681
I've seen some folk just print on a sheet of felt, then sew it right to the head.
Embroidery is going to look the best of course. Though not everyone has access to an embroidery machine. You could always try sewing some felt or fleece together into an eye.

The problem with iron-on printed eyes is, can't you not iron felt or fleece? Sorry, another newbie plush maker here still trying to figure out how to get the eyes on.
>> No. 130691
>>130690
I wasn't talking iron on in that case. Watch this video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7CnTljGcuJM

I tried it once, but the printer jammed up on me. Though the bit that came out looked really nice. So it'd just be a matter of finding a printer that can handle felt/thicker paper, then stitching them on afterwards
>> No. 130692
>>130687
Cool, thanks for the advice.
I guess I should learn how to embroider sometime, but for now I'll just stick with the felt.

Well, after a bit of convincing my sister has finished making her first MLP:FiM plushie.

http://skippymagrue.deviantart.com/art/TwilightSparklePlush-SkippyMagrue-407359245

She's made a ton of teddy bears and stuff in the past and she likes the show, but isn't real familiar with the fandom. But I finally talked her into trying to make one to sell.

She created the pattern herself (with a large number of critiques from yours truly).

The best part is that the head rotates.

Anyway I hope it sells well so that she will continue making them.

Let me know what you think!

I kinda lost my motivation for pony plushies so I digitized my plush pattern and made it available. If any of you guys want to get it, you can find it on etsy:

So, I've had a 4DE Pinkie for a few months now, and she's starting to look a little... discorded. Like, she's literally turning grey (You can still see some of her original pink on her belly in the pic) I'm not sure if it's dust, or what. She's not handled much, just sits on my bed(which admittedly had been getting very dirty until recently, just got a brand new set of sheets on it, won't let it get that bad again).

Does anyone have any advice on how to go about washing her up? I couldn't really find much online about cleaning microfiber, which I believe the 4DE plushes are. All I know is that she is supposed to be surface cleaned only(according to her tag), so no dunk in the wash, and the basic gist I've gotten online is to use a mild detergent solution to clean them with, but I'm not sure what to use. I don't want to discolor it (worse than it's getting) or anything. If anyone has a how-to for me, I'd really appreciate it.

Someone showed up from China yesterday.

Overall the quality is very good. There's a few seams that aren't even, and a bit of bumpiness in the mane and tail, but nothing detracting. And her legs are a tiny bit too short, which does make it hard for her to stand up. Finally due to how it was made, she has a "kitty mouth", something which all of Onlyfactory's plushies seem to have.
The embroidery work (eyes, ears, cutie marks, and the lines on the tail, wings, and mouth) is outstanding. The fabric for the whites of the eyes and ear inserts appear to be separate pieces.
She comes out at 12 inches as advertised, though that's to the tips of the ears so it's smaller than BaB ones (Aurora size perhaps?).
The fabric is even softer than on BaB ponies, and it is stuffed a little more firmly than them. The shade of yellow is brighter than it looks in the photo. She was shipped in a heavy plastic bag.

Overall it was worth the $24. Hopefully The filly princesses will be ready soon.

The Australian seller who sells the Onlyfactory plushes finally posted Spitfire today, but.....it looks way lower quality than the original plush that Onlyfactory made.

It's just a huge downgrade in quality. Ech.

My friend in Germany however, somehow ordered a Spitfire from Onlyfactory a few days ago, despite the fact that trying to visit the page gave me nothing but 404s, even when using various european country proxies.

Anyone know where I can get the real Onlyfactory Spitfore?
