Zebras with wings (and unicorn pegasuses)
On holiday, I got to make unicorn toys for my daughter, and for a niece I had promised one to, long ago. I took with me a pattern, but then modified it until I liked the face better. You can see the first shape in the first zebra (black hair smaller one, Eve) - my modifications in the second (white hair larger, Troy named her Ash).
Later I made wings for the unicorn - and stuffed them, and sewed through the wings so it had a quilted effect. Troy loved them and begged me for wings for her zebras.
I will post the pattern I made sometime soon! Kids love unicorns.
I also made her some zebra pants to match her toys. I love holidays...
The white mane is a knitted piece that uses eyelash wool which is then stitched into the seam - so basically like a plush toy fur texture in a strip. The horn on the unicorn Pegasus was a piece of leather rolled into a cone. But I also make them using ram shell horns.
I said no to Troy about giving her zebras horns.
