So, after making the first one, I had to make her a friend!  This was originally going to be a Rainbow Dash like pony, but while I was painting the eyes, I accidently smudged some black on the body and it wasn't going to wash off, so viola!  Just add more black!  There are no mistakes, just happy accidents!  Still need a bit more black on the nose I think but all in all I like it!  I made this one from an old polo shirt! 

She stands up a lot better than the first one, which I think is from the more sturdy materiel.  I hand drew on all the stripes and of course painted the eyes (don't recommend watching Netflix while you paint, makes you a wee bit careless!) 

I love the tail and mane though!  Had to look at a thousand or so zebra pics to make sure I was getting the stripes on sort of right lol.  Ok enough of my rambling, enjoy!

I believe your first one was the cupcake pony, correct? I can already see improvements between the two Smiley And it's nice to see I'm not the only one who has painting issues with black paint on fabric and just uses it lol.

Yep, the cupcake was my first.  Thinking somewhere around 6 or 7 I should be making them look perfect lol.  My little girl doesn't mind though if they are a bit off, she loves them wonky and all Smiley  Paint's sneaky, making me drop a brush full of it on purpose lol.  The noses on these are throwing me off, not sure if I'm not putting the pattern together right or if I should just hack at it a bit with some scissors until I like it and then sew it lol.  How we get better though!
