My sewing: Octavia plushies x2!

For my 12th and 13th plushie, I decided to make Octavia!  I actually wanted to make Cheerilee first, but I thought Octavia would be easier and also provide good practice for Cheerilee’s tricky forelock design.  As usual, I wanted to try and capture Octavia’s 3D forelock 😉

Octavia took a bit longer than I’d expected because, as much as I love Octavia, I actually wasn’t as “motivated” with sewing her as I was with the other “more colourful” ponies, in fact, the highlight of her plushing process was the making of her little bow!!!!  xD which is of course my favourite colour – PINK!  (her bow is so teeny tiny and cute!!!  I love it so much!  :3)

The Octavia on the left is for my upcoming Christmas plushie giveaway!  More info on that tomorrow!  (it is 4.30am in NZ right now >.< I need to sleep!!!!) and the one on the right I’m keeping for my own collection!!!!  😀  Woopie!

ALSO – I bought a lightbox!!!!  WHICH MEANS I CAN TAKE PHOTOS OF MY PONIES AT NIGHT TIME!!!  Yayness!  😉 (and this is the very reason why I’m still up at 4.30am and submitting this… I’m sooooo going to pay for this tomorrow :<)

Anyway – I hope you like her!!!!!!!!!  (x2)

  1. Well done, your such a pro! Oo Christmas giveaway did you say~how exciting! She’s a beauty for sure, will you start making the princesses soon? Cheerilee I think she’ll turn out pretty as well, will you try making your OC’s? Or even creating new ones 😉 I’ll be waiting for me.

    • Thank youuuu! 😀 And I’m planning to try my hand at fillies – then stallions – then princesses! But only after I’ve finished my To-Do list + complete mane 6 for my own collection xD so a few more ponies to go! So possibly some time next year? 😛 😛 and as for OC’s, I have thought about making my OCs… but not for a while because they’re quite complex xD, and no new OC’s for now! But would love to have more OC’s to plushify in the future…. we’ll see! 😛 and looking forward to getting a commission from you 😉 would love to make a pony for you!!!!! hehe
