This is crossposted from Curiousity.ca, my personal maker blog. If you want to link to this post, please use the original link since the formatting there is usually better.

I made this Twilight Sparkle for a friend and then, uh, took a year or something to get it to her. I am the worst at mailing things (in the end, J gave it to her in person and I never mailed it!)


The pattern


This is a pattern I made myself, and this Twilight Sparkle is actually one of the first ponies I made after I had actually published the pattern. (I also have a set of teensy tiny felted ones that I haven’t finished up and photographed yet… someday I’ll get through my backlog of projects to document!)

(You can tell it’s been a while because she’s still just a unicorn!)


Photos


Since I wrote the pattern, I don’t have much more to say about it, so here’s a bunch of pictures of the pony!


Body only:


Violet Pony for Katie


I do love that she’s a bit posable….


Violet Pony for Katie


Those legs are surprisingly bendable!


Violet Pony for Katie


If I wanted to her to have a bigger range of positions I could have wired her legs, but this is just the qualities of the yarn and stuffing.


Violet Pony for Katie


Her head also moves, although maybe not as much as the legs


Violet Pony for Katie


And here she is with a mane and tail and cutie mark: I don’t love her eyes (I haven’t found a great way to do them; these were drawn on fabric and sewn on), but she does look more expressive with them!


Twilight Sparkle for Katie


Closer look at her rump so you can see the cutie mark. Or make jokes about butt-shots, whatever.


Twilight Sparkle for Katie


Did you notice what book it is?


Twilight Sparkle for Katie


I chose it for photos because of the colour, but it does seem like something she might enjoy, eh?


Twilight Sparkle for Katie


Maybe one day I’ll do a version with the wings…


Twilight Sparkle for Katie


Or at least one for myself!


Twilight Sparkle for Katie


Overall, my biggest regret on this one was not sending her out sooner. Sorry about the delay, Katie!
