Do it, totally, if you think you can (trust me, you can)

I recently made one with this pattern(blown up) http://meliadhor.deviantart.com/art/MLP-FiM-like-Plushie-MARE-210881718

I blew it up to where I thought it would be about 20 inches, but it stretched to nearly 30 inches tall, so there's a warning on size.

Here you can see what I did: http://cloudsville.forumotion.com/t482-taters-pony-plushy-completed-he-s-finished-4-20?highlight=Taters+pOny

That was done without any past experience whatsoever, it wasn't easy, but it was really fun.

I would suggest you do something big enough to sew with a machine, because it will both speed it up and allow you to not worry about the strength of your stitching. Inevitably certain parts will need to be hand sewn.

Ok so for pinkie pie I would assume you will make the hair out of fleece, rather than yarn, so you will need to sew it on after the pony is completed, and make sure the shape is awesome, because pinkie

For a 1 foot tall pony, i would suggest getting just a yard of your main fabric, if you go any bigger get a yard and a half. Seeing as its pinkie, youll probably need about half a yard of fabric for her hair. Stuffing is insanely cheap so that's nice. If you have no supplies to start with it will probably take about $30 worth of supplies to make a pony.


So yeah, there is my bit of advice, I hope you do it!

Wouldn't a store like Michael's sell the materials? (If you have one around you, that is)

I am suggesting you order them, mostly because I want this done.

And micheals is a hit expensive for fabric and stuff, but their online prices may be around the best, if they ship to Germany. Sadly Hancock Fabrics won't ship out of the US. I would just try googling and finding a place that's decent.

The problem with ordering online is you can't be EXACTLY sure of your fabric, and also you will probably limited to buying full yards, meaning you can't get small amounts for features or stuff.
