"I'm a pony girl, I love ponies I love manga, Hamma beads and knitting, so why not combine this to a nice DIY. This is my hand knitted pony badge and a pice of Art-work to lay in Hama."

You'll need:

  • Art-work template
  • Scrap yarn i the colors you need to knit the art-work I have used Lama wool from 50 g = 100 m
  • knitting needles 5,5 mm - needles that fit your yarn
  • Hama beads medi - lots of colors
  • Hama plade medi 4- squears
  • a flat-iron
  • ironing (baking) paper

Step 1: The Grown-up prints the Art-work with or without colours

Step 2: You can do this step together: Colour the Art-work and use it as a chart for the beads. The grown-up irons the beads afterwords. 

Step 3: The grown-up knits from the Art-work/hama-bead. 1 bead = 1 stitch in gather and 2 rows. 

Step 4: Together you find a nice pice of clothing to sew the pony badge on to. Put the Hama- Art work in a nice frame.
