A love affair from the 70's

My love affair with my little ponies began when I was about 6 or 7 and was given my first pony 'Cotton Candy'. I grew up in a home with not much money, so most of my ponies were purchased at car boot sales ( garage sales) or at second hand shops. My love of the my little ponies has rubbed off on my girls, and they too are starting their own collection.

I can't afford to always buy brand new toys, and to be honest, I don't think it is a good habit to get into with young children, but where I can't afford to buy...I make instead.

In this hub, I show you the best patterns for making your own my little pony. I have tried and tested some of them, so I can speak from experience, I hope you enjoy reading.

Thanks for stopping by.

Make your own plush

Tips on how to make your plush

For those of you who appreciate handmade toys, then I am sure you will agree that making your own is always better, It gives you great satisfaction, you learn to improve your fine motor skills, and it obviously means that you save money.

Top Tips

  1. ALWAYS THIFT, you need to do this on a weekly basis, and you will eventually find some really great material for your plush.
  2. A few of the really good quality hand made plushes use anti-pile fleece, you may want to look in the home wear section of your local store and pick up a fleecy throw. This will go further than buying specialist materials from a haberdashery.
  3. Auctioning sites can be very good for bargain hunting.
  4. Access youtube/vimeo for visual tutorials to help you.
  5. There are always non-sew versions, for knitters and crocheters
  6. If you cannot sew, then find someone who can teach / supervise you( my mum taught me how to sew)
  7. Take your time, and make something unique and beautiful, you don't have to copy the exact G3 sets, make your own pony.

Just for fun!
