So a few months ago I bought a Giant Plush Pattern from rosesare on the MLParena.
The Kentucky State Fair was coming up and I decided to enter a Giant plush in it. Of course I had to do Cotton Candy as she is my favorite G1.
I was so excited to go to the fair on the first day to see if she had won anything. Sadly she hadn't I was really let down considering ALL teddy bears had won.
I was also irked they had folded back my DA address I had wrote on her tag.
I went to pick her up today and they told me that everyone loved my pony and it would have won first place if she had been the right size..
I was confused considering the only size requirement said "Maximum size of doll must be 18 inches"
They told me that that included the stuffed animals >_<.. They should so specify that lol.
They also told me they had more comments on the pony than anything else. That made me feel really good ^_^.
Next year I am just going to have to size down the "giant plush" pattern lol.
She was made with Poler Fleece. Her symbol and eyes were made from felt. She has PVC pipe in her legs to keep her standing.
Her mane and tail were made from a really soft yarn called "Caron Simply Soft Yarn". Making the yarn into a mane/tail and sewing it into the head and butt was not a simple thing to do. It was very time consuming. It looks awesome and was worth the time but I am going to try and figure out something else to use next time.
She stands about 33 inches tall.
The first pic of her in the case was taken at the fair.
She is for sale and I will be taking offers on her.
