Rarity plushie by WhiteHeather Rarity plushie by WhiteHeather
Presenting my most recent plushie, and my favorite pony, Rarity from My Little Pony Friendship is Magic! I am very excited with how she turned out!

She is made from minky with appliqued satin eyes. I used two shades of minky for her mane to better approximate the look of her gradient hair in the show. Her mane and tail contain absolutely no wires!

This lovely lady will be going to live with the fabulous :iconrenegadecow: and was part of a trade with him. I'll need to make a new one for myself soon though.

Sell these on ebay. Seriously, I saw a princess celestia plushie go today for over $1,800! People there are going CRAZY for them. I wish I could make them!

I don't sell on ebay anymore. It's a gamble and 2 out of the three auctions I posted there sold for less than I'd charge for a comission.

I love how you made her hair different shades according to the show :D. I would soooo love one of your Rarity plushes...

Rarity is certainly best Pony!

There are lots of little details about this that make it wonderful! The two-toned mane and tail really bring it all together, I think! :)

Thank you :) I'm not sure why more people don't do a two toned mane honestly. I really love the way it looks!

This is fantastic! I like how you made her tail and mane look great from every angle. The show makes it seem geometrically impossible, but you've pulled it off gracefully :)

Curious - what colour minky did you use for the lighter shade of purple?

Thank you :) Her mane was a pretty big challenge, but I'm very happy with how it turned out!

It's violet from Minky Boutique. The violet from them is different than the violet from Fabric Depot, so if you are looking to buy some order it from them specifically. I think that Minky Boutique carries some fabric that isn't shannon brand, hence some of the color differences.

The Fabric Depot violet is a much warmer shade of purple. The violet from Minky Boutique is very close to jewel from Fabric Depot, but just a bit darker. I used jewel for the purple in my Sweetie Belle's mane. You can hardly see the difference in pictures though. Jewel would probably be a decent alternative if you were placing an order from Fabric Depot and wanted to get all your fabric in one place.
