We’re all pirate ponies in the end

 

Ack! I must have you!

 

One late night of surfing the internet, my path crossed with this beauty on ravelry crocheted by “bookworm20x”.  It was at that moment that I knew that it was my destiny to make four different “My Little Ponies”, one for each of my daughters and nieces.

Squee!!!

 

 

Apparently, “My Little Pony” is back in action all resuscitated from the 1980′s.  Just like me, she’s had quite the makeover since then.

The 80's were rough for us all...

 

 

 

Then: Madame Frump

Now: Va Va Voom!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Like the  inspiration pony, I decided to use the free Hermione the Unicorn pattern listed on ravelry and fancy up the eyes and hair.  I felt like a total weirdo the day I went to the fabric store for the sole purpose of buying felt for pony eyes.  It was then that the woman in front of me in line announced that her $100 dollar fabric purchase was to make a coat for her friend’s show dog.  Yes, surprisingly, even clutching my printout of an assortment of pony eyeballs, I was the most normal one in the store that day.

After lots of eyeball sewing, crocheting, and some stuffing, here is how they all turned out.

    Love your ponies! Are you on Ravelry by any chance? If so, I’d love to follow you. Just discovered your amazing blog, and added it to my reading list. I am not a blogger, due to having my hands full with lots of kiddo’s, but I am pretty active on Ravelry, if time allows. Your blog and projects are so cute and inspirational.
