My brother is a 'My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic' fan. Yes, my brother. Otherwise considered a 'bronie.' I thought it was a little weird at first, but being a fan as well in my younger years, I was okay with it.
Anyway, I have been wanting to make him a pony for a very long time. However, it took me that much time to find a pattern I really liked. I'm not quite skilled enough to create my own construct on my own, so following someone else's pattern was a must. I'm sorry, but at the moment I do not have the web link to the patterns on hand! If I remember I'll post the link at a later date. Key words being 'if I remember.'
I knew I was going to make a Fluttershy, his favorite of the gang. So, I rummaged through my yarn at home to find the right colors and went to work. The pattern itself was really easy to follow. With any toy made in parts, though, the sewing it all together was the hardest part. I didn't quite get the neck to look right, either, but she's still adorable! I cut pieces of yarn for her hair and attached it with a crochet hook. You could probably use a latch hook as well. Eyes and cutie mark were done in felt.
Since the Fluttershy toy was a gift, I couldn't share it until now! I have been waiting FOREVER to share it with the world. Needless to say my brother really loved it. Quite honestly, I feel she turned out ten times better than the on cheap China ones you can make in the store. ^_^ But I might just be biased!
What do you think? Would you want one for your self or a gift, too? Contact me if you would or just admire this one's cuteness here!

Over the weekend I participated in a holiday craft show. It was my second one, so I had an idea what I needed to do for set up. I had items made for Christmas along with my regular items. All in all, I was pretty pumped!
One of the things I added for this show was a special order form. I even made a really cool looking form! It's seen in the picture below. I suppose customers didn't REALLY care too much about it, but I did notice the graphics caught some of their eyes. They would stop and read at least. :)
Go ahead and use the form if you like. You'll have to white out the information about the QC or you can message me privately for the pdf without it.
I did, however, get one special order. A sweet old woman was looking for some slippers for her son for Christmas. She wanted a look like my soled baby shoes. She wanted Christmas green, brown double soles. I said I could do it for her just fine. She was excited, but said she'd look around at the other booths first.
A while later I was pleasantly surprised to see her back. She wanted to order from me! So, I filled it out and told her I'd have them ready by Monday. She was surprised so fast. I was, too. Sometimes I say things before I realize what it really means. My husband thought I should just tell her later that week, but what was done was done. All of Sunday I spent my day creating the shoes you see in the first picture. I thought they turned out really well once they were all blocked (as seen in the picture)! Below is a picture with the sole and top together.
