This is jaw dropping for being your first AJ. By far one of the best that I have seen and I love the use of the magnets. How much would one of these works of art cost, that is if you're still crafting them?
This I think is the best AJ plush I have seen, and there are a lot of amazing ones out there. I've been trying to find an AppleJack plush to get for ages, but unfortunately apparently not popular enough to be mainstream sold. If you do intend on making more like this for sale depending on pricing, I would be extremely interested.
I did a lot of tests and finally I came back to something very simple. It is only made with minky, I put fabric glue between the two inner layers to stiffen a little the hat. I hope this is clear enough, I'm really too bad in English, sorry.
