Pony Pattern by xMischief Pony Pattern by xMischief

Foal version:…
Laying version:…

This is a pattern that I spent countless hours perfecting because I didn't care for any of the ones I could find.
I originally designed it to be rather large but i'm sure the pattern will work for any size you please as long as you keep the proportions in check.
Although it may seem intimidating at first for newer plushie makers these types of plushies are actually very simple to make and a great project for beginners.
NOTE: this pattern does not contain seam allowance so you will have to remember to add it.

On the heads; the darts are not mandatory but I recommend them greatly as they make the head much more round.

The blue area on the body is a optional stallion curve for those who prefer a less rounded rump and a more masculine appearance.

I included wings but not a horn pattern because all the horn is, is two long triangles. I recommend this tutorial…
if you're going for a spiral look.

What I plan to do for the wings is to stuff the feather part normally on wing 1 but the center softer, than sew wing 2 on top of that and lightly stuff. I have not made a actually plush with this yet but I plan on it soon so I will post pictures than.

On the stallion head piece, you have the choice of either cutting it up into the three sections or keeping it all as one, the difference between them is that the sectioned one produces a less rounded and more defined stallion snout. The first and biggest section of the piece goes from the back of the head to the top and beginning of the nose. the second piece starts from the top of the nose to the beginning of the chin. the last trapezoid piece is the chin piece and starts from the beginning of the chin and goes all the way to the neck.

Tutorial for plush:…

For those of you who don't know how to sew darts: This is all it takes.

This pattern is completely free to use from the kindness of my heart. If you do happen to use my pattern I beg of you to send me pictures and links so I can see your amazing, beautiful, lovely, ponytastic creations. if you have any questions feel free to ask.

added part names so the tutorial is easier.
cleaned up pattern a bit.
I made the head size smaller and not so gargantuan. Hopefully this will make the plush look more like the actual mlp style. This and other changes and tweaks should probably come as I actually make a plush with this.
added new stallion head center piece.
made the legs thicker, added a chest curve in the front, and added a eye to the mare

Question, are we allowed to sell ponies we made from your patterns? Just wondering.

I have a question, on the head at the base by the dart do you cut off that rectangleish piece or no? Thanks!

I will defenately use it for my unicorn oc plush but I have a question:
Do I cut the darts?
Do I cut the sections of the head that are not attatched to the head?
I hope you or someone expirienced will answer
