Hey you! Yes, you! Do you want a free pony? Well today's your lucky day, 'cause I'm giving one away! That's right, thanks to three hundred of your beautiful people pushing the watch button, I've made a plush pony to give to one of ya! Really, I can't thank you fine folks enough. Three hundred. That's a really nice number. It's over 299, and under 301. And something about Sparta. (the current 8.6k page views are nice too)

(Yes, I know I've got a few more now, but it took me a little longer to finish the free pony than I thought it would.)

What plush is it that I'm giving away? A 6 inch tall Vinyl Scratch! Hand made for one lucky watcher, she's made of fleece, a throwback to my early days of pony plushing. She's the smallest pony I've ever made, and probably the last pony of that size I'll ever make. Hand embroidered features and hand sewn tail and body, she's a very lovingly put together lil' Scratchy.

Watch her in action! => youtu.be/VV4gxQE040M

I'll ship to anywhere, and for free. Because I love everyone out there, not just folks in the continental United States. :meow:

Now, how do you enter the giveaway? Easier than pie! Just "Watch" me here on DeviantArt (you'll need an account here to do that), then post a journal entry yourself that links back to this one and that gives a short description of the contest. You'll have 'til April 29th to enter, and then I'll draw a random watcher. I'll check to see if the watcher has posted a journal linking back to this here one, and if they have...

It's really that easy! Some quick no-no's for the contest:

1) Don't note/message me a link to your link to my link. Really now, that'd just make my head hurt. I'll do the checking after the contest is over, you've just got to make sure you've posted it. This also means ya don't have to link your link to my link in the comments. ;p

NO, REALLY. YOU DON'T HAVE TO LINK YOUR JOURNAL POST LINKING TO MY JOURNAL POST IN THE COMMENTS.

2) If you've got a question on something I wasn't clear enough about, the comment section below is really handy for that! No need to message or note me on that sorta stuff, and others can read your question and my reply thataway.

3) I don't ask for perfect grammar and spelling, but keep it clean in the comments and such. A little politeness goes a long way, you know.

4) No matter how much you beg, I've got to be fair in who gets the pony. Beggars can't be choosers, but beggars can make me facepalm and sigh.


So one more time, you've got a month to "Watch" me, then post a journal linking back to this journal entry, and that's it. I wish you all good luck, and may the force be with you that you may live long and pony.

So I don't need to link my journal? I think it might be good for me to link it because I will be posting a lot of journals soon do to going to a convention soon. Would it be okay to link it or no? *is confused* Sorry if my question is weird at all!

Anyway I watched you and made a journal! That pony plush would be adorable to have.

Okay thank you. I'm sorry I was just really confused! (you'll be able to find it easy though because the journal skin has Vinyl Scratch on it. I picked that one so it would be easy to find! :D ) thanks for clearing that up for me though. :D

If you think /you're/ a procrastinator, you should see the 95% complete Fluttershy that's been sitting on my table. Since... October? November? Or the 65% completed life-sized Sweetie Belle that's been set aside since late December. Or the Pinkie that I've not worked on in two weeks.
'Course, my lack of plushing is more likely due to university study... or maybe just laziness XD
If you ever want a few tips, I try to share what I know with anyone who asks. Just no asking for my patterns ;p

Winree Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh gosh, get onto those! XD
And life size... woah. XD

My lack of anything is due to nothing XD Maybe my job, a bit.

And tips? I just need to know the best fabrics, mostly :P

:icondoublebackstitcharts:
DoubleBackstitchArts Featured By Owner Mar 29, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
Life sized indeed ^ ,^ I'm the guy who did this little big lady a while back: [link]

Best fabric to work with is Minky. Hands down, best plushing fabric. I got my start with fleece, as it's cheaper and also popular. But really, minky is softer, more durable, harder to get dirty, looks nicer, and is harder to work with. My suggestion is to test your patterns with fleece, then move up to minky when you need to fine tune those patterns. Fleece has a one directional stretch you have to be wary of when you're working with it, but minky has both a one-way stretch and a direction the fake fur stuff faces (really can't remember the technical term at the moment) and that normally runs perpendicular to the stretch. Really what you use is up to you, so practice with one and the other, see what you like best and what you can afford/get.

MOTHER OF CELESTIA, THAT'S HUGE!

How much did SHE go for? I WILL BUY ONE! I AM SAVING UP AS WE SPEAK!

... How much was shipping for her?

Anyway.
I will probably use fleece mostly, as most of my money will be going towards savings for that plush, hehe. A bit of a problem, as I only earn 40 a month, but. I'll. Manage.

I don't talk prices in the comments, little darlin'. I'll note you ;p

Fleece can be good. I got my start in it, and thanks to it I was able to afford to upgrade to minky. What's most important is that you have fun with what you do. Otherwise it's not worth doin' ^ ,^
