Yay, it's official! The second (and much improved!) version of my mare pattern is complete! I've revamped everything, including digitized images on how to complete each step of the pony and more detailed instructions. The pattern is on Etsy [link] and includes:

Standard mare pony pattern and tutorial
Open and closed wing patterns
Horn pattern and tutorial
Mane and Tail patterns for:
- Derpy
- Rainbow Dash/Daring Do
- Trixie
- Fluttershy
- DJ-Pon3
Accessory patterns for:
- Trixie's cloak and hat
- hooded cloak
- DJ's glasses
- saddle
- shirt
- Daring Do's hat

As always I provide full support and am happy to answer any questions you might have while making your pony. I also want to add even more bonuses and extras, like new accessories or finishing up more mane and tail patterns, but these cover the basics of 2D manes and 3D manes.

I'm also working on finishing the stallion pattern, which will come with my Royal Guard armor pattern, so keep your eyes open!

** Bonus picture! [link] I can't show thumbnails but just to show you the kind of tutorial images in my pattern. Or check it out if you're curious how to attach a head gusset to your pony! **

Thank you for this great pattern! I made Fluttershy with it (you can see here)  and she turned out great!:happybounce: 
 Also it's very generous for you to share you pattern because I know a lot of artists don't.

Aww, she's cute!  I'm glad everything worked out well for you.  I think everyone should have a chance to make a good pony!

I think you should use this picture for Etsy. I think more people will buy your pattern if they know what is included in the pattern.

Really?  That's a good point.  The thumbnail viewer on Etsy made me kinda wary, but I can certainly try.  Thanks for the advice!

Is there a way you can have a tutorial on painted ponies like Pipsqueak, only adult? I saw what you did with his pattern and I LOVED IT!
munchforlunch Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013
What part are you looking to have explained?  How to do his spots?  I'd be happy to include it.
PristineLavender Featured By Owner Jul 29, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes! How to include the spots! I would love to know how you did that! :3

I know I sent you a note, but I figured I'd post it here too in case anyone else found it and wanted some help!

Pipsqueak's eye and other markings were done with a technique called applique. It really just means taking one piece of fabric and sewing it over the top of another. So for his neck spot, I had already sewn his chest together, then cut out his spot and laid it over his chest. It was then stitched down around the edges to make it secure. For the eye, I actually embroidered the colored fabric instead of the white, cut out the spot, and laid it over the face piece. Again I stitched all the way around the fabric. For the face, it actually had a weird bunching effect, so I removed the white fabric behind the eye; the colored hoof thingies on Big Mac and Shining Armor are done this way too. Besides just stitching it down, you can also finish the edges with a satin stitch (basically a dense zig-zag) which can help it look polished. :devfireflytwinkletoes: makes all of her eyes this way, and I did it for my large pony eyes as well. The stitching gives a really nice defined border, and secures the fabric down really well. For Pip I didn't use a satin stitch because it actually made the spots stick out TOO much.

Excellent pattern, just a word of warning however, on the pattern pieces pages, the face gusset is mislabelled as belly gusset.

Whoa, thanks for pointing this out!  I have corrected it, fixed the Etsy listing, and mailed out the corrected version to all the users who purchased it, yourself included.  I hope this didn't cause too much confusion, and I appreciate you bringing this to my attention.
