Morrgan, the One-Woman Pony Factory

Iron grey or gray horse Those of you who have followed me on Twitter may have noticed a small obsession with ponies lately. That's because I got a custom order, a great one actually, because:

a) It was larger than my usual custom orders (not that big by most wholesale standards, but my shoppe is small and it was big enough to make me happy).
b) It was my first order from a business, and a local one too.
c) Wheeee, ponies!! Or horses actually, but I like the word pony.

Morrgan, the Pony Factory
So I became a one-woman pony factory. Above you see the work in progress and it illustrates my way of working pretty well. I start by knitting the pieces and when that gets a bit dull I begin to put them together, then soon go back to knitting again because my fingers itch for it, then take a break from it again and sew on the manes and tails, and so on, and so on. When it's not a big order, I just work on several things at once in a similar way.

Palomino horse These are actually magnetic horses, containing a strong neodymium magnet. They are all different and I made a few extra ones too, which have already been listed in my Etsy, Art Fire and DaWanda shops. They would make a fun Christmas present for example, don't you think? *hint hint*

White horse



I already have many many random ideas for other magnetic animals: foxes, elephants, doggies, polar bears, black panthers... Stay tuned!
