Lil’ Baby Unicorn (Pink)
Lil’ Baby Unicorn is born. This little baby is a request from a dear friend and it’s the 2nd Unicorn I’ve made. The 1st unicorn was made months ago for Cherron’s 21st Birthday. Click “Here” to read about Lil’ Candy Floss, the other unicorn I crocheted.
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’ve taken some pictures of this little baby playing with my other yarn friends. Enjoy!
Lil’ Baby Unicorn is learning how to walk. And Lil’ Bunny Cupcake is cheering her on!
Lil’ Straw”BEAR”ries love spending the afternoon telling stories and teaching Lil’ Baby Unicorn ABC..
Lil’ Green Kitty enjoys horse riding on Lil’ Baby Unicorn.
And the other animal friends are worried about Lil’ Baby Unicorn safety and that Lil’ Green Kitty would fall. “Kitty, stop bullying the little baby. Come down now.”
Oh I just can’t get enough of them! Can you?
Here’s are some of my Work-in-progress pictures:
On the left shows the picture of little baby unicorn’s head. I did a color change for the head, started off with off-white yarn and changed it to pink after. On the right, is the picture of her little ears and horn.
This is a little collage of the other body parts.
The next step is to construct the mane and tail. I’ve seen some pictures of other amigurumi horses and unicorn that has a hair-like mane and tail. It looks like they attached the yarn to the body piece by piece. I’m afraid pieces of hair will fall off from my unicorn because I haven’t master that technique. It look time-consuming and tedious too. I would love to learn that technique someday but I was thinking of an easier way to create the mane and tail yet it will look nice at the same time. Since it’s a gift for my friend, I want to make sure that all the parts are nicely done and are secured.
This was what I had in mind. Using 2 different colored yarns (to create better contrast), I chain them together, Single Crochet, Double Crochet, Triple Crochet and Slip Stitch to create a shell/flower like mane. Then I used red yarn and repeated the same steps to create smaller shells and sewed them on both sides. Same goes for the tail, just that i reduce the number of chains.
After completing all the parts, it’s time to piece them together.
I’ve sewed on 2 ‘X’ nostrils using red tapestry thread and added a pair of 12mm eyes to give Lil’ Baby Unicorn a really adorable look. Look at those eyes, don’t they make you want to give her a big hug and a little pinch on her cheeks?
This is the back view of Lil’ Baby Unicorn. The mane and heart-shape tail look pretty good after sewing onto the unicorn hey? I’m so happy that it turned out right and that the color contrast goes well. *smiles*
I’ve one more unicorn in my To-Do-List. My colleague Michelle saw this little baby and fell in love with her! She wanted one for herself too. Her baby unicorn will be in blue because that’s her favorite color. Looks like many of my friends love unicorns. :) Hopefully I can complete the blue unicorn before giving this pink one away so I can snap some cute pictures of them playing together.
Thank you for taking your precious time to read my post. I really appreciate all the love, comments and support you have given me. Click “Here” if you want this pattern.
Crochet with Love,
