On a whim I decided to try and make a pony plush, so I picked up a sewing kit, fired up instructables, and taught myself to sew. A few days ago I went by the fabric store and got some fleece, and then around 16 non-contiguous hours later I had this thing on my desk.
It's technically a prototype Zecora, but mostly I was just getting used to hand stitching and using a pattern. I used a double threaded needle and a modified back stitch for the bulk work, with some slip stitching to close up the back.
The red guidelines have been bleached out now, and I'm trying to decide if I want to do stripes, eyes, and cutie marks; or just leave it as an Albino Blind Blank Flank.
Pattern is from here, with some modifications: http://nuno-runo.blogspot.com/2010/04/zebra.html
