Once in a while you stumble across something so special that you just can't help yourself. That was the case with Gary.
I mean, just look at him. How could I resist:
Although I was still something of a crochet rookie, I simply *had* to have a go at making him. Mainly under the pretence that my son would love a unicorn toy. In reality poor Gary has mainly taken a lot of abuse from my spirited toddler, but he does get the odd cuddle so I like to think that this kind of makes up for it.
As I was happily
showing off introducing Gary to a friend of mine a while ago, she asked very nicely if I might consider making a couple of additional unicorns for her daughters - well of course!
It took a little longer than planned, but behold Princess Sparkle Horn and Princess Tassel Toes:
The lady-corns were handed over last weekend and I think it's safe to say that they were well received with lots of squeals and thank yous.
Last I heard, they were happily tucked up in bed with their new owners. Just don't tell Gary, he might be jealous..
