If you follow along on Instagram, you may have seen that I was using some old aprons in new projects. (Vintage aprons I was going to donate and then decided I better keep them!) My daughter came down to the sewing room and posed me, ha!
I made this horse from Ann Wood's free horse pattern. She painted hers, but I had the perfect fabric from an old apron (the one I'm wearing above) to cover mine. My grand daughter's birthday party is today and themed with horses so I thought it would be fun to make a horse tag for her. Well, I decided this one should stay here and that a pink one would be better for her.
So, back to the vintage apron pile and the cereal boxes and another horse was born! Another great fabric. I love the movement in both of these fabrics for the horses!
And, since I've been in major exploring and creating mode with all kinds of ideas, I decided to try a little needle felted baby to stick in with her gift too. She's only about 3" long.
And, the baby needed a little sleeping back in case her little sleep sack she's wearing isn't warm enough. :)
It will be fun to see what my granddaughter names her.
I have a lot to learn about needle felting, like how to make it smoother. I'm pretty sure it's dependent in the needle you use last. Sadly my needles are mixed up and I can't really tell which is which. I didn't have time to sit and figure it out on another bit of felt. Oh well.
It's been freezing here again...looking forward to the return of spring!
