I AM NEVER MAKING SCRATCH AGAIN. THOSE GLASSES AAAAUUUUGGGG. DX Ok maybe I would make her again, but I had SO MUCH trouble with the glasses. These are the sixth try!
I had a lot of trouble dyeing her hair too, because I didn't have the right color of dye at first.
She's larger than the other ponies I've made, with the exception of the Luna doll I'm still working on. She's about six inches at the tips of her ears. You can see more pics on the eBay link, one which shows her with a G4 Fluttershy for reference. I'm pretty pleased with how she turned out. Her posing ability is good and her coat is soft. Her hair is brushable like all my ponies, made from Suri alpaca which I combed, dyed, cut, and styled myself. I love Suri, but it takes a little extra effort to get it to dye properly, and I didn't have any good blues on hand! Eventually, after many tries, I got the color I wanted, even if I would have preferred it to be a bit more saturated. There are a few strands of angelina fiber in both her mane and her tail, which add some shine and interest. This version of her glasses was made by painting on some fabric that was attached to felt with fusible web. I'm not even going to relate all the misadventures I had with that! But here's a tip for others: Iron-on transfers and fusible web don't like each other. >.>; The glasses hold their shape (and therefore stay on Scratch's face fairly well) because they're coated with several layers of Mod Podge Dimensional Magic. Her coat is a blend of superfine merino and Huacaya alpaca, which is why she's fuzzier than my other ponies. She's also softer as a result, though. Her eyes are printed onto special fabric, so they're crisp and well defined. I don't really like working with that kind of fabric though, it's very stiff and it's hard to felt through it, so I doubt I'll use it in the future. For people that want printed eyes, I'll use a different material, such as iron-ons on standard cotton fabric.
