A Little Pony

This is my 2nd little pony I made. I added the unicorn horn and wings. I used the pattern from the Japanese Softies book, of course I don't speak Japanese but I can put it together from photos. And of course I found out they have the book  in English but I sent away for my copy from Japan several years ago.

 I don't have a embroidery machine and I didn't know how I was going to do the eyes. But this is what I did: I hand drew them, colored them in, scanned them, I printed out on iron on transfer then ironed onto felt, hand stitched and machine zig zagged. Next time I'll cut out felt colors and fuse them together then stitch down.

Legs are  little bowed as I had to stitch them together a little bit because I didn't put a wire in the legs, they would be splayed out otherwise.  I wanted to keep it child friendly for when I make and give them to my great nieces.
