Since I've benefited from so much good advice from tutorials on DA, I've decided to post some of my own, in the interest of helping others and giving back to this awesome community. There are lots of tutorials out there, but I haven't seen one yet for doing Pony Plushie Fetlocks, so I decided to post one. Now, keep in mind this is only how I do Fetlocks; it's probably the most inefficient way to do them, but it worked well on the last stallion I did, so it should work for you!
I am working on Pt 2 now, and it will include how I sew the bottoms of hooves in order to get them looking, well, hoof-shaped. It took me forever to figure it out, and I am still tweaking it. I promise you, it's not magic.

This tutorial assumes that you a) have a pony plushie pattern already, and b) have a basic sewing skillset. I would also highly recommend a sewing machine, but I suppose you could do it by hand (but I don't envy you the hand cramps you're going to have later).
Also, I am in no way endorsing Mountain Dew and M&Ms; they are my sewing snacks of choice, so I had to add them to my tutorial.
MLP:FIM belongs to Hasbro & Ms. Faust; the pattern & method shown are my own creation. If you would like to use my method, go ahead! (I do not give out my pattern, however) Please link back so I can see what you made.
Thanks for looking, and I hope that you find this tutorial useful!
