Rarity plush by hystree Rarity plush by hystree
I've been a fan of the show since last season and after seeing everyone's cool plushies wanted to try and see if I could make some too. Rarity is my first pony and I'm still getting a feel for the fabric and pattern, but I think she turned out okay. Got to take some better photos tomorrow in good light.

She made with something called micro chenille and has embroidered eyes and cutie marks. Her neck is jointed too but idk if the next one will be or not.. it was a bit of a pain.


edit to add:

WOW so many wonderful comments @___@ thank you to everyone for all your support and encouragement!! To answer a couple common questions:

1. Rarity is not for sale! Because she is ...coughimperfectcough.... But I'm working on the pattern and method and plan to have much more perfect ponies in the near future and some of those will be for sale.

2. I don't take commissions yet because still trying to get my pony plush making footing down, but I probably will in the future. If/when I do there will be an announcement post made with all the info and stuff.

3. My pony pattern is not for sale or share as of this time, sorry :[

4.Not really a question, but to clear up any inadvertent confusion: Rarity is my first pony plush, but I do have years of stuffed animal and pattern making experience since it was one of passions for a long time. This is also why I have certain personal standards and consider this first plush to be unsellable (but she's still beautiful to me and I certainly don't mind keeping her forever).


Thanks once again for all you comments, it's tough to keep up! I'm working on more ponies even now and hope to have more cuties to share soon.

Thank you!

But that's pretty amazing too imo, I go insane when trying to sew clothing!  It requires such precision and patience.

Question: how did you do the horn?
Reply
:iconhystree:
hystree Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It's basically just a cone shape, and I stitch the lines on with a satin or zigzag stitch before sewing it together and stuffing. Then it's hand stitched to the head.

How did you get her mane and tail to curl like that? It looks so convincing, like straight out of the show!

I use plastic coated electrician's wire to keep the shape, it works pretty good!

This plush is made out of micro chenille from my local fabric store, so I don't know what the exact fabric is called... but for my other Raritys I used minky cuddle 3 in purple. This stuff: [link]

If you don't mind my asking, what do you stuff your ponies with? I really would like to make my own!

:iconhystree:
hystree Featured By Owner May 23, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
It's just normal polyfill or fiberfill stuffing. I got some of it from pillows and some from bags of stuffing they sell at walmart in the craft section. It comes in different types though, I like the slick anti-clumping kind best for most of the body but also use some firmer stuff in places that need it. Good luck! I hope you'll post pics when you make some :)

What kind of wires did you use? I'd like to make Rarity too because she's my favourite FIM pony. Btw, great job! I wish I had embroidery machine...

It's just plastic coated copper wire, you can get it in any hardware store. Not sure of the gauge though, whatever seems sturdy enough. Thanks :)

If you don't mind my asking, (and if you do, please feel free to totally ignore :XD:) do you not have to worry about the wire wearing at the fabric?
As a pretty new plushie maker, I'm trying to understand how the whole wiring thing works bit by bit since there isn't a lot a info on how to do it that I've found. I'm guessing that the end of the wire has to be 'anchored' somewhere in the top of the head to get that gravity defying swoop? Thanks very much! ^_^

:iconhystree:
hystree Featured By Owner May 1, 2012  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
Nope, it's coated in plastic so the wire doesn't touch the fabric and you don't need to reposition her hair all the time since it's pretty firm too. Also I pad her hair with fleece so it's got a couple extra layers of protection there, though I don't know if it's really necessary. And yeah, the wired goes right into her head and body a good ways to help with the tension. I don't secure it though, the stuffing does that well enough. hope that made sense and was helpful!

It's cardboard disc and cotter pin. Did a quick search and here's basically how it's done (except the dics go in the neck and head parts): [link]
