thread & cotton fabric for cutie mark and eyes

For helping:

Due to the picture below and various other people voting on my facebook and what-not, I am going with the design on the right. Obviously the yellow and such hidden behind the ears.

Found this picture from the show, showing it's on the right, so....

Where can we see live-update pictures?
Well, my tumblr of course! smile It is the link below.

http://uncannymagician.tumblr.com/

But what if I don't want to have to click a link to see the pictures?
I'll be posting batches of the photo's throughout the thread,
though those are not live-update, they're a "when I'm dead
tired and just want to keep you guys informed.

Do I need to have a tumblr or follow you to see the live updates?
Of course not. Though it'd be nice of you to follow me, it
isn't required at all. You do not need a tumblr either, though
you can't interact with me through there without one. But
I'll still be posting here.



Tenative schedue:
5/14/2012 - stuff and attach ears, make and attach wings, start making patches
5/15/2012 - attach patches

NEWS:

5/8/2012 - Might only have 1 or 2 updates today on the tumblr due to back pain. ): Don't want to throw out my back(Rainbow Dash is HEAVY) making it so I'll have to take a week-long+ hiatus on sewing.

5/10/2012 - Changed the first post to make it cleaner for all those new to the thread. It looked incredibly ugly and unorganized, so I went ahead and did that. Also, putting the question for help with her mane at the very top, but below the opening stating what it is I'm making, and what it's out of, so it'll be seen easier.

So.....now I just need to separate the massive pattern(around 500KB image, yeesh!) in to 8.5x11 sheets for printing. My printer is going to hate me so much....

Anyways, then I'll start the pictures.
Joking aside, I'm interested in seeing this.
And as for what side to put her cutie mark, I'd personally go with her left. Not sure why, but left seems like a neat idea to me.

I was thinkin' left too. And orz...printer out of ink after only the 4th page. ;.; This is what I get for making them black blobs.

~4.5 feet. I've read that's approximate mare size(really 4, but I accidentally made the pattern too big).

Is that at the head or shoulder?

That sounds about right, then. I did my own calculations a while back, and the mane 6 should be about the height of falabella stallions. which are around 3ft at the shoulder.

Huh! Neat. I know that I saw a few pics a while back doing some math(can't remember where) that had a big ruler in the background that ponies walked by. Was a winter episode. I'll be fully honest. I've only watched about 4 episodes. >.>
