Does it ever happens to you that something you are crafting sort of... comes alive? No? Umm... Me either! No!
Just this... once...

" 'ello!"
Eh, don't push your muzzle right at camera, you got to go take few steps back...

"Is it better? Can they see mee now?"
Yeah, that's better. Now you just hold still...

"Yayy! Catch me if you can!"

"Isit me you drawing there? My neck doesn't look like that."
Oh my...

"What's this you're putting in your...?"
Tea? That's honey.
"Can I have it? Can I?"

Don't give me that look! Uh. Ok.

"Njam. Nice! More?"
Not now. No.

"What's this?"
Well, I thought you might get cold out there. So I'm making you a blanket.

How do you like it?
"Does this colour make me look fat?"
No, you are just lovely.
"Yeah! I know!"

"This is your work table? It's a bit messy."
I know...
"Is it because this you work on dining table?"
Um. Yeah.
"I can help u clean this you know."
NO! No. Thanks anyway.

"And that's my blanky in there?"
Yeah. Watch your fringe!

"Is it ready yet?"
Just few more things..

There. Now you're good to go.
"Yayy! England, here I come!"
Be nice to post office folk.
" 'kay."
And don't cause rumpus on a plane.
" 'kay."
And keep your blanket on, it's going to be cold.
" 'kay."

"Are we there yet?"

So this little fellow went to my Unicorn Swap partner. Good luck to her with this girlie (and keep your honey jar behind locks)...
So, technical details: She is needle felted from super soft merino wool (She got hugs from everyone in our household because of that). She has wire armature that's covered with thin layer of foam. Hooves are round wood sawn slightly diagonally and glued to wire. I broke 14 felting needles doing this, seriously.

Never stop believing. Stars never do.

The little girl obsessed-with-unicorns in me just fell in love <3. This is amazing and the story you told is super cute! So lovely Cheesy
