Title: The Trailed Park Ponies (4 pics)
Post by: StyxAndStones on July 21, 2008 04:48:24 PM
Here are two of the horses I made before Pegasus. I made them to give away as gifts, but now I can't part with them. Because they were the first I made, they stand a little wonky and look a little intoxicated, so I named them after my favourite hooligans, the Trailer Park Boys. Bubbles is on the way. . .


Ricky and Julian enjoy a nice night in the 'park:


Ricky is distracted from his troubles with Mr. Lahey for a spell:


Julian stops to smell the flowers. . . and look for the rum and coke he dropped:


Ricky and Julian get the munchies after stealing barbeques to sell at the flea market:

Holy crap they are cute!!!!!  I wouldn't be able to give them away either. Plus my daughters, both horse addicts, would be fighting over them.  Great job.  Man, I wish I could sew........

Oh so cute!  I had to totally stalk your profile and look up the Pegasus horse you mentioned - I'm afraid to sign up at http://www.funkyfriendsfactory.com/home.aspx (http://www.funkyfriendsfactory.com/home.aspx), though, 'cuz if I end up making these cuties, I'll get lassoed by my bug into supporting her horse addiction....

okay, looked at your ponies again - I need to sign up!  Thanks for the link!

These look great! My sister would love these, and I checked out the website, lots of cute patterns. Do you know if these can be hand-sewn, or do you have to use a machine? If you could let me know that would be great, I really want to make one but dont want to spend the dollars if i can't make it (don't have a working sewing machine). Thanks!

Hey there-- certainly if you prefer, the patterns can be made by hand-- in fact, with some of the pieces being so small it was actually a challenge machine sewing them! I don't hand sew too much because I'm pretty impatient (and because I feel like a Nascar driver zipping the little bits around on the machine-- lifting the pressure foot on the sharp corners and all)
