Rarity Plushie :) by moggymawee 

So for my 7th plushie, I decided to re-make Rarity! :D Again, I decided to use two shades of purple for her hair to capture its shimmering gradient and made her tail more 3D/voluminous. I'm very happy with the results!

Rarity is not for sale! I'm keeping her for my own collection! ;)

I hope you guys like her as much as me! :3

Details:
*Materials: cuddle 3 minky by Shannon Fabrics
*Minky colours: Snow White, Purple, Mauve
*Stuffing: premium polyester fiberfill, craft foam, pipe cleaners (in the end of her curls only) and poly pellets in hooves
*Thread: gutermann polyester sew-all thread, gutermann rayon embroidery thread
*Eyes/Cutie marks: machine embroidered
*Size: Approx 15" tall, 20" long
*She has my signature embroidered into the bottom of her front left hoof

Rarity's mine (YAY) and is not for sale! But Twilight still is! :) Please adopt her if you can here:

OK! Next project is RD! ;) After RD, I would've finished making the mane six at least once! :D I'll be remaking everyone to keep for myself, and I'm also itching to make some background ponies (Lyra/Cherilee etc). I will also be opening 2 commission slots! Please read maryrilakkuma.wordpress.com/po… for more info ;)

Thanks and have a great day!!!! :D

The mane and tail on this plush are just amazing!! :heart: I tried making a plush for the first time, and I chose Rarity, and before I saw yours I decided to try to do the tail the same way! The only problem is it sags a lot and I even read a tutorial on how to fix sagging tails, but it didn't help. :\ Mind sharing some tips on how you keep your tails so firmly in place? :)

Thank you so much for liking my work!!!  I really appreciate your support :) and good on you for starting to plush!  It's so much fun and sooo rewarding!  I use craft foam in the mane/flat parts of the tails so it gives them structure, the curly bits I use some pipe cleaners.  Hope that helps!!!!  :D I would love to see your plushie when it's done!  (if you don't mind :P)
AlicornParty's avatar
Absolutely! Your work is beautiful! :D Haha, after I stitched my pattern together, the tail turned out waaay smaller than I intended, so it looks really bad. But I will probably post it if you want to see whenever I finish. :heart:

Thanks for the tips! Is the craft foam that expensive green stuff you can buy at Jo-Ann's that comes in sheets like 10 feet tall? But how is it that you keep it sturdy at the base, where it's attached to the butt? My tail flops and droops there, it isn't sturdy at all. :C

Hi, yes, I would love to see!  ^-^ As for Jo-Ann's, sorry but I'm from NZ and we don't have Jo-Ann's here >.< but it's like this sorta stuff:

Oo, I see what you mean.  Um, you need to make sure both the butt and the tail are stuffed fully/densely :) you could secure the tail to the butt with a full stitches and then keep stuffing it until it stands well/sturdy.  Hope that helps!
AlicornParty's avatar
Ah okay, just regular cheap foam! Smart! :D

Ah okay, so I should attach the tail to the butt BEFORE stuffing, and stuff them together? What I did was completely stitch up the butt and the tail, and then attach the tail after it was already stuffed, using a ladder stitch. There's no hole between the tail and butt, since they were sewed separately!

I used this tutorial:

MLP Plushie Tutorial: Attaching Manes and Tails by MLPPlushies
moggymawee's avatar
yea, I don't have a hole either.

What I do is I fully stuff the butt, and the body etc then sew the head on.  The butt is easy to stuff densely because it is "enclosed"/blind-ending; but the tail is more annoying because it has a hole at the end (well, mine does anyway :P) so when I try to stuff it densely, it's impossible.  So what I do is I stuff it as much as I can, then I secure the tail on the butt with a few stitches, then finish fully stuffing the tail (that way, I can stuff it densely without stuffing falling out of the hole).  Hope that kinda makes sense :) and I would suggest also placing the stitch higher up on the upper-side part of the tail - sorta like what the tutorial you linked me mentioned at the end, it'll help pull the tail upwards.

Good luck!
AlicornParty's avatar
Yeah, I tried all that but it didn't seem to work for me. xD Oh well, it was my first try so I'm sure I'll figure it out with practice! :heart:

How did you do that hair!!!
moggymawee's avatar
piece by piece!  w lots of care + effort!  it's a combination of sewing/minky fabric/craft foam for internal structuring :)
Scyther-X's avatar
Wow. I wish I could do that! :)
