Rarity Plushie :) by moggymawee Rarity Plushie :) by moggymawee
I underwent a bit of a sewing marathon this week ^^".  I felt slightly uninspired whilst working on Scootaloo (even though I desperately need one for my collection >.<) and after taking a look at my pony plush collection, I felt a sudden and irresistible urge to re-plush Rarity.  I've plushed Rarity twice before, and kept the second one for myself.  It was my first pony with embroidery details so it's pretty ancient xD.

Rarity V2.0 by moggymawee 

I've improved quite a bit since then, and I've been wanting to revamp her hair (esp her forelock) for a while now, so this was an extremely exciting project for me.  Once I started, I couldn't stop!  >.< Argh!  I wish I could sew all day!  :(

In fact, I had so much fun re-plushing Rarity that I've decided to re-plush the entire main 6!!!!  So poor little Scootaloo will have to wait a while :S  Rarity's forelock was the highlight of this project, I plan to use the same concept for Fluttershy's hair too.

Just like my previous Rarities, I've decided to use 2 shades of purple for her hair to try and mimic its shimmering gradient.  For some annoying reason, my camera could NEVER capture that gorgeous royal purple colour properly -.- so it looks a bit weird in these pics *sigh*.  I didn't do much re-working on her tail, it's still 3D (instead of flat curls) to add volume.

I guess another little change worth mentioning is - my ponies have nostrils now!!!  xD  they can breeeeeeaaaathe!  LOL.

Anyway - I hope you guys like her!  I think she's a huge improvement from my previous one :3 and I'm so proud to add her to my collection.

Details:
*Materials: cuddle 3 minky by Shannon Fabrics
*Minky colours: Snow White, Purple, Mauve
*Stuffing: premium polyester fiberfill, craft foam, quilt batting, wire in her hair, and poly pellets in hooves
*Thread: gutermann polyester sew-all thread, gutermann rayon embroidery thread
*Eyes/Cutie marks: machine embroidered
*Size: Approx 16" tall, 18" long
*She has my signature embroidered into the bottom of her front right hoof

As aforementioned, I'll be re-plushing the main 6 for my upcoming projects.  Fluttershy'll be next most likely.  And I'm hoping to plush two Fluttershies at once so I can keep one and sell one.  I can't wait to re-pattern her forelock!!!!  >w<

Okay, I better publish this post now.... and go tend to other important things.... since I've been neglecting the other aspects of my life for the last few days!  ^^"

This is quite possibly the BEST Rarity I have ever seen, and I have been combing through Mane 6 plushies for a while.  Please note me your commission price estimate for one of these and the shipping cost to United States.

Even before i read the description, I was going to say that her forelock was the best I'd seen on a Rarity!
The fact that that was your focus means you were pretty darn successful!  =D

I don´t like her, i love her. Made 2 Rarity for myself so i know she is not an easy girl. I think because the small details show her rare beauty, more than everypony else.
Great to hear, the Mane 6 are for your own collection! Having them all in such a high quality and all from one (or 2 to be correct) hand must be a dream come true.
And yeah, sometimes we work and work and don´t see what level we reached.  So taking some older art and make a comparison helps to reduce stress at times.
To be honest, my goal is to reach something like your skills one day, but i also see that 2 years ago i could not sew a button on pants. Maybe all we can do is going further and see what magic we can do. Keep up your great work!

Aww, thank you so much!  You're too kind!  :D Your work is great too!  Do you keep any for yourself?  I am guilty of keeping most of the plushies I make to myself Panda Emoji-32 (Happy Blush) [V2]... I just can't resist (and I'm too greedy haha ^^").  I also took up sewing only to plush ponies - I was addicted to collecting them ^^" so we are very much in the same boat!  But isn't it great that our love for MLP have inspired us to take up this wonderful art and to create!  ;)

Thanks again for your kind comment, it's made my day!  :3. And keep up your great work too!  ^.^

haha, i keep some for myself yes. Giving them away is mostly a fight. But the most gone into the market or are used for trades.
And yes, the spirit of the ponies changed a lot for so many people, it´s wonderfull!
