We originally were going to paint them and then I came up with the idea of covering the horses in fabric - see? Sometimes I have an original crafty thought! Anyway, she loved the idea and made one covered in pink flowery fabric with pink and brown legs for our niece. I wish I had thought to photo it before she left! Anyway, this is such a clever thing to do and with a little bit of time cutting out the pieces and decorating them you will a wonderful horse-y silhouette to dance across your wall, too!
In other news, I whipped up a beaded and felted purse for a friend who is getting married next month. It was a quick knit and the first time I've ever used beads! I think it's lovely and when it's completely dry I intend to do a little accent embroidery around the flap. I also need to figure out what type of fastener to use. Here's a peek!
