Good Monday Morning!
So... I noticed My Little Pony is crazy popular (they're so cute!!) and there's many different amigurumi versions out there so I had to try my hand at making my own version!
I did some research on Google Images, which is a great place to start on any project. I found a picture or two of other people's ponies that I liked and set out to make my own! This was the result:
She's about 4 inches tall and probably 2 inches at her widest. Over all, I love the way she turned out! She's the perfect little pony!
The yarn I used was Bernat brand and it was awful! But the odd thing was, the yellow was worse than the pink. It was really grippy and rough, and almost impossible to get the stitches tight enough so there weren't any holes.
The pink yarn was softer and seemed to work better. I bought both skeins on clearance at Meijer - now I know for next time, right?
Her mane took the most work. I cut several 8" pieces then tied a knot in the end of each string, threaded the needle and pulled it through a hole in the side of her head, and up out of the hole where I wanted her mane to be. I actually added too many strings and had to remove some to make the hair lay more natural-like. I added the black embroidery thread smile but I don't know if I'm going to keep it, what do you think?
I'm planning on giving the pattern another go with a better yarn. I think it'll turn out much better the next time around! Like a beige pony with a dark blue mane... or a chocolate pony with a white mane!! :D I love color combos!
Oh and those two little stars? They are a new pattern too! Quick, easy, simple, cute, and fun!
I got the idea when I was a pair of amigurumi star earrings from MohuStore. She makes these adorable thread amigurumi earrings in all shapes and sizes!
I thinking of making this one into a tutorial eventually,
they'd be a great project for the beginner and experienced alike!
