Rainbow Pony

Hello lovelies!!  I've been elbow deep in felt and embroidery threads lately working on an exciting project for The Land Of Nod.  Though I cannot tell you anything about it at the moment, I will definitely post a sneak peek once I'm able!
Whilst working on the aforementioned project, I had an overwhelming urge to create a little pony that could easily be adapted into a unicorn or pegasus.  I must say, it just kills me when I get ideas for other things when I'm already busy working on something, especially something that has a deadline and requires all my attention!  Anyway, I finally got to try out my idea and here's she is!
   A little Rainbow Pony!
Next on the list, a unicorn with a mane and tail made out of wool roving and a pegasus with cute little wings.
I got a lovely surprise in the mail on Friday - a copy of my new book, My Felt Doll!!  It's now available for pre-order and due to be released this October.
 I'm just so happy with how it's turned out!  Here's a look inside:
  The little Schoolgirl is my favourite!  She wears a traditional uniform, very similar to the one I wore in High School, complete with frilly socks and satchel!
 This is the Woodland Maiden.  Her little bonnet and cloak were probably the hardest outfits to design!  Oh my goodness, I cannot tell you how many different versions of them I made till I was happy with the outcome!!  There's also a dear little hedgehog (you can spot her in the bottom left hand corner) that fits perfectly into her little basket!  The Bedtime Doll and Little Mermaid are shown below.
The book also includes an illustrated stitch guide and a list of supplies and where to get them.
 Last by not least, I've had a couple of amazing weekends with my hubby so far this summer!  We spent one weekend on our little wooden boat in False Creek and another camping at Bridal Falls.

  17. Hi Shelley, I have never made a felt doll before but having found your book available for pre order on Amazon I couldn't resist. I am eagerly awaiting my copy on release. I taught myself to crochet a couple of years ago and absolutely fell in love with amigurumi so I'm sure I will love felting dolls just as much.
