My daughter loves My Little Ponies! The thing that makes me so happy about this, is that I loved My Little Ponies as a little girl too! In fact, my mom actually saved several of my ponies and gave them to Karis a couple of years ago. I cannot even tell you how much fun it is to see my own child enjoying the very toys that I so often played with when I was her age.
One afternoon when Karis was playing ponies she asked me if we could make clothes for them. Now I can sew a little bit, but making clothes for tiny horses is beyond my abilities. I noticed that a couple of her newer ponies came with little capes. With a little trial and error, I figured out a simple way to make pony capes by using small hair scrunchies, scraps of material, and various ribbons, buttons, and fabric flowers that I had in my craft drawers. We spent several hours together designing these “outfits” for the ponies to wear. Most definitely time well spent with my girl, and it brings me joy to watch her play pretend while dressing her ponies up in their beautiful capes.
