OK! So I finally received some fabric for the eyes/cutie marks today! And I tried appliqueing w satin stitching for the first time! YAY! My first ever plushie has eyes now! YAY!!!
Embroidery machines are madly expensive in New Zealand… so I don’t think I’ll be investing in one until I’m actually serious about making plushies etc. Anyway, sorry for the poor lighting! I can only sew at night when my baby daughter’s asleep :3
Because I’d already pre-made the pony – I had to stitch the eyes on a separate stray piece of minky. Obviously I still have a lot of room for improvement with applique – but I think it’s not too bad for my first attempt! 😀 Can’t wait to work on the cutie marks!!
