So my little girl will be turning 4 next week, and she asked for lots and lots and lots of ponies.  So, of course buying them is one thing but it's sooo fun to make things. Plus she seems to love the things I make her and I'm going to enjoy that while I can Smiley.

I found this pattern online http://jackiekie.deviantart.com/art/Pony-Plushie-Pattern-v2-0-331784231  and it looked fantastic.  I did enlarge it by 2 1/2 times though because I like big plushies. Ok ok, and they are easier to sew lol. 

She's made of white fleece, eyes are painted with regular acrylic paint.  Her mane and tail are cupcake printed fleece that used to be an old pair of my pajamas. (I also made her a bathrobe from those pajamas lol) 

Her hooves have lentils in them, so they have a little weight to help her stand up.  Her head's a bit floppy though, but I kinda like her like that.  I've taken to calling her Cupcake, but she may have a new name after next week when she get's to her owner!  Lots of fun making this, I think I might have to make a whole herd!   I like painting the eyes, much more fun than safety eyes.   Thanks for looking!

Lovely little pony. I'm sure her new owner will adore her and you will find you have to make a whole stableful to keep her company.

It is cute. And so much better than the plastic ones.

I agree with Taramor, so much nicer than store bought.

Thanks everyone!  They are fun to make.  I know a few kids that could use a nice pony to snuggle!  There are a lot of cool patterns on deviantart.com  that I want to try.  All kinds of plushie patterns~my free time will now be spent covered in stuffing lol.
