Fluttershy doll by JenniferElluin Fluttershy doll by JenniferElluin
:iconamimizunofan22:'s Christmas present.

Fluttershy is from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic

Body crocheted (no pattern - I made her up as I went), hair latch-hooked in, eyes and cutie mark embroidered. Made with yarn, embroidery thread, and fiber fill.

This pony's not for sale, but if you're interested in getting one like her, I do take commissions! Also, I do have some more already made that are for sale. Check out all the dolls I've made so far here: [link]

How did you do her hair? I mean, did you pull yarn apart to get it looking wavy like that?

Yes, that is exactly how I did it. :) I latch-hooked it in first, and then I unraveled all of the strands one-by-one.

And what a lucky brony I am! :D I don't know why this wasn't in my favorites yet, but that has been remedied.

That is beautifully done. =)
To quote Sweetie Belle, "I REALLY like her mane." :iconsweetiebelleyayplz:

It's really too bad you don't have a pattern for this, cuz I've been looking everywhere for some nice crocheted wings, and those definitely fit the bill.
Can you at least give me an idea what you did to make the wings?
From what I can see, it looks like you did each feather individually, but I can't quite tell what the stitch is.

Thanks so much! :aww:

Well, I can try to remember what I did. I've never made a pattern before, though. I believe most of it was single stitch. The feathers weren't exactly individual, as I figured it would take too long to sew them together. What I did was make a chain about the length of the top outer feather, then I single crocheted back along that line. I think I went all the way back down then I turned around again, only this time I did what I think was a half-crochet stitch (not sure - I don't generally use patterns...) up to the point where I wanted the next feather to start, then I chained off that point to the tip of that feather and then came back single crocheting like before. I single crocheted back a bit past where I started chaining before turning around and chaining again for the next feather. Same thing for the last (and smallest) outside feather. That one I single crocheted all the way down to the bottom again. For the inside feathers I did something similar, I just attached them to what I had of the wing already. Once I had gotten that far, I decided that the outer feathers weren't thick enough, so I single crocheted all the way around the outside, being careful in between feathers so that I didn't make them stick out at odd angles. Once they were done, I just sewed them on to the body.

I really hope that helps. Sorry if it's confusing. ^^;

This helps immensely, actually. =D
I understand more or less what you did, so I'm pretty sure I can figure out the rest on my own as I go.
Thank you very much. ^_^

Thanks! I always make up dolls as I go along - it's more fun and creative that way :) I love embroidering eyes on dolls, and ponies have such big fabulous eyes :aww:

This is very very *very* well done!! :clap: It must have taken a lot of time and patience, congrats! I particulary like the three butterflies and her hair:)

Oh thank you, my son!
Yes, she did take some time and patience. I had to keep pulling out and redoing the head to get the shape right - back legs took a bit of the same thing. Surprisingly, though, those wings came out right on the first go! Most of it wasn't too difficult, since by now I have had a lot of experience with making dolls.
This one was a lot of fun to make, and my brony friend really liked her. :D

That's good that your friend liked her!! It's an important thing that the customer is happy:D
But what does "brony" mean?:)

Mmhm :aww:
"Brony" is the term for adult or young adult males who are fans of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic show. It's a rather strange phenomenon. There are tons of them!

Aha... I see. Yes, I think it's rather strange too. I have met a person like that (it was a little boy), but I never thought that there would be *tons* of guys who like My Little Pony.
The world is full of mysteries:)
