Amazing work. This is the finest Derpy plush I've seen on Devinatart. Hopefully HASBRO will release pony plushes. Most people use yarn for the mane but I liked how you made the mane much better than yarn
Probably, I've only used an embroidery machine once and it was 7 years ago . I'd love to get one though. I did find a way to make things look embroidered with a regular machine though, it's called free motion embroidery. A lot harder to do, but it gives a similar effect.
