This guy was made from an altered horse pattern. I gave him (or her depending on the recipientís choice) a different set of ears, a shorter spiky mane, and an awesome zebra tail.

Remember those spiral friendship bracelets we all made in middle school (and some of us still make now)? Well thatís how the top half of the tail is winded together. Yay for trans-craft skills!

Youíll notice that some of the stripes are not perfect; this is done on purpose. Zebrasí stripes arenít perfect so I wanted some variety. Iím not sure if it looks better like this or would have been better with the stripes being all the same.

Comments and advice welcome.

I love the stripes. I would leave them as all un matched like they are. Makes him/her extra special.

Thanks for the nice comments! I'm happy people like the stripes.

I used the same pattern as here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=303501.0
I'll let that post explain the complications in getting the pattern.

This is about the cutest thing ever.

The shape of the body reminds me of Bullseye from Toy Story 2

This is beyond adorable.  I'm headed to the original post to track down this pattern, I have to make one for my daughter and the new baby on the way.  Too cute!
