Sleipnir The Eight Legged Horse

Sleipnir - In Norse mythology, Sleipnir is an eight-legged horse. Sleipnir has been mentioned to be Odin's steed, is the child of Loki and Svaðilfari, is described as the best of all horses, and is sometimes ridden to the location of Hel. The Prose Edda contains extended information regarding the circumstances of Sleipnir's birth, and details that he is grey in color.

This was the briefing I got when I first agreed to make this plushie, I thought yeah a few extra legs won't be that hard! Actually I'm really surpremely happy with how he turned out. Sleipnir stands at 19 cm/7 inches tall and 23 cm/9 inches long. I orginally wanted him to be bigger but I kind of massacred the pattern a little bit, let's just say Sleipnir is a baby.

Pattern based off of that made by :iconvoodoo-tiki: I just added four extra legs.

Norse Mythology with some My Little Pony Style!

He is completely hand sewn and made from minky fabric. He will soon be going to live with :iconspardakitten: (who also did the concept picture in the bottom left)
