Daring Do by fireflytwinkletoes Daring Do by fireflytwinkletoes
Finally got her finished! This is the Daring Do commissioned by :iconsteen182:, and a project I've been thinking about since I started making ponies! I tried something new with the RD/Daring Do mane, and I like the result. It's so poofy that it's hard to put her hat on over it, though! Her hat is made of minky and fleece with cotton accents - the brim is stiffened with a cardboard insert. Her shirt is made of minky, lined with cotton, and removable with velcro.

Could I ask how you got the brim of the hat to stay in that concave shape? :). I'm working on my Daring and dreading making her hat.

There's actually a craft card (basically very stiff paper, just shy of cardboard) insert in the brim of her hat to maintain the shape. On my other Daring I just used thick interfacing, and that seemed to work just as well without the fear that it would some time get crushed out of shape, though.

Yes. I don't make pre-made plushes and then sell them, though - I take commissions so that people get exactly the plush they want. It's all explained in the info I referred you to.

Would you except 30 points? I can send you money through the mail but I'd have to wait until after Christmas, you do not have to send me the plushie until I pay you every cent. I would like to make payments if that is alright.

Please check my price list and FAQ. I do not accept points - they aren't worth anything in the real world. 30 points is approximately equal to 30 cents, which is not enough even for a downpayment on a plush. I am not currently taking commissions, as it says on my front page. I will be opening another round of commissions in January. There is information about how my commission process works on my front page and in my FAQ (which there are links to on my front page).

I'm working on a plush right now and if don't mind me asking, how did you get her wings to stay upright?

:iconfireflytwinkletoes:
fireflytwinkletoes Featured By Owner Mar 25, 2013  Professional Artisan Crafter
There's a wire that runs through her body and into the top feather of each wing.
