Picture of Lil' Baby Unicorn
LYFblueu3.jpg
This little baby is a request from a dear friend and it’s the 2nd Unicorn I’ve made. Jaster wanted her unicorn to be different from the previous one I made. She wanted it to be unique. So I thought of trying to create my own unicorn instead of using back the same pattern. I’ve also decided to change the colors for this unicorn. I want this unicorn to be sweet and vulnerable (just like a little baby). Pink never fails to give the sweet and adorable feeling. I search my stash box to find other colors that will go well with pink, and I ended up choosing red and off-white. What do you think? :) I really enjoyed making this little one and I’m happy to share it with you! The unique part of this unicorn is probably the 2 colored mane and tail. Make this special little friend for yourself or to bless someone else.
