Here's what Pinkie Pie looks like these days in the My Little Pony cartoon:
And in toy form:
My Little Ponies have huge eyes these days!
The pattern calls for the eyes to be painted onto felt and then sewed on, but Val has a younger sister who would probably rip the felt off. It took me a long time to figure out a way to crochet the eyes. I'm annoyed that the method that I chose causes the eyes to bug out so much, but oh well.... It was the best I could do. The nose also turned out a wee bit too long, but I was afraid to modify it and make it look worse. Argh. But I love Pinkie Pie's mane and tail!
Val's mom sent me this picture of the exhausted birthday girl snuggling Pinkie Pie on the way home after her birthday party.... Awesome!!!
Happy 4th birthday to our Valley Girl!!
