there, here's V2 of Pinkie pie, and V3 of my pony pattern. I'm actually STILL not completely happy with it but I've just come to the conclusion that I'll never get ponies perfectly right.
So with the new head, my ponies are now 14" instead of 12", but aside from that they're still pretty much the same. Though I did change the eye position on this Pinkie Pie to show more white. She's completely made out of minky, hand embroidered mouth and cutie mark balloon strings, as well as thread sculpted 'curls' in her mane and tail.
