Today I am making a hobby horse. It will eventually be for Chloe, and she is very excited about it. I am teaching a class on how to make them for a Super-Saturday craft day in October, and I need the model made for display by tomorrow, and since there is no time like the last minute, I am making it today! I must say it is coming together rather nicely!
Here is my finished horse:
Chloe is loving it. The original pattern calls for felt eyes and nose, which could be cute if you did some cute stitching and didn’t just glue them down, but I have this collection of vintage buttons that are awesome and I love, so I grabbed some of those for the face.
While I was doing this, I cut my middle finger on my left hand. I am now down to three usable fingers on that hand. Scott is thinking of banning me from all sharp objects!!
