Making horses

My favourite handmade item is generally the last one I’ve made…
And this holds true for my rainbow felt horse *smile*
I am so happily surprised at how well he turned out!
{I used the pattern from Creative Play for your toddler}
I’m actually itching to make another!
But then I look at the calendar and realise that over the next seven weeks…
{yes seven weeks!}
…I have a few items on my crafting list!
So I settled on knitting another up
{I still find knitting them up quicker at the moment!}
Mmmm… but that gorgeous rainbow felt is calling to me *smile*

Happy crafting,

    They are both beautiful. For me there is no way I could knit nearly fast enough therefore blanket stitch is my friend 🙂

      Thanks Ronnie, I am newer to hand sewing so at the moment I’m the opposite! I am enjoying blanket stitch now though 🙂

    Hello from another Kelly! I love the look of the knitted one (probably because I can’t knit very well but wish I could!)

      Hello Kelly 🙂 thanks for your lovely comment, luckily this pattern is super easy to follow and a great project for newer knitters 🙂

    I love these horses! I will have to check out the pattern because I do knw how to knit (crocheting still evades me)!

      Oh me too, I’ve tried a few times to pick up crocheting, but think I need an actual project to try it on!

    I love the rainbow felt! How could anyone resist? I have yet to knit up a horse but I’m planning on trying for Christmas gifts. I hope mine look as good as yours!

      I know, isn’t it beautiful, when I came across it I simple couldn’t 😉 Good luck with your knitting, I’m sure it will turn out beautifully!

      I’ve only picked them up in the last year, and I think if I could do it anyone can 🙂 (I was very un-crafty only a year ago!)

    Oh my goodness my daughter would love these!

    • Reply Happy Whimsical Hearts November 16, 2012 at 9:26 pm

      They are lots of fun to make, I think when my kids are older they’d probably enjoy making one themselves too 🙂

    Oh that felt is beautful!!

  • Reply Natalie November 13, 2012 at 9:59 am

    Gorgeous! I am the opposite though. I just finished sewing a pair of slippers from felted wool because it was faster than knitting up a pair.
    I do love the rainbow felt you used. I have never seen that before. Thanks for sharing.

    Wow! They aer both beautiful!

    Really pretty! I make horses out of up-cycled wool sweaters, so I’ll have to blog about that soon and share with you. I used to sell them at Waldorf fairs. You can’t go wrong with horses. Yours are lovely. Thanks for sharing.
