How neat. Awesome!/Lillian
they look absolutely fantastic!!! Kids will have hours of fun playing with these! ~hugs~
Fantastic, I just love these!
You did an excellent job.
Hey, I found you a freebie design, if you want to put it on a shirt to match while they take their 'ride'/trip.
Wow. Thanks. That would make a nice complete gift.
They are so cute! You have done an amazing job with sewing everything. Is your fabric faux suede? Also would like to know the yarn you used. I like your 'mane' here better than on Banana's pattern. Are the eyes hard to find?
Thank-you Yes, the fabric is faux suede. It will be on sale at JoAnn"s from August 8-18.
The yarn is Lion Hometown USA El Paso Autumn. If you separate the yarn into its separate parts, it becomes more full and crinkly. The best price I found for the eyes was here:
I bought quite a few since I have so many grand-children. If you also purchase the eyelids, it finishes them off nicely. I am thinking of gluing some cheap false eyelashes on the next one I make.
That sounds cute and show us your 'pretty girl mare' when you do! Thanks for the info. Do they ever put the pattern on sale?
Just looked at eye link-What SIZE and SHAPE, oval?
It's the 24mm plastic safety eye. It's round, the oval shape is white fabric that you add as a backer. I don't think the pattern has ever gone on sale. It was worth it to me because I was going to use it so much. I know that there are some free patterns out there, but I wanted something very realistic and with an open mouth. Also, this makes a really good size horse head. Some are pretty small.
I am full of questions, and a few other things we won't mention-lol, but is the dowel attached with a zip tie or glued to keep it secure? I guess if I'm that interested I should just get the pattern, uh?-lol
Yours came out so nice, even the bridle. I like the bells it looks like on them too, to keep up with the kids.I clicked on and got a larger view.
wow, they are great !
Thank-you. They have been a great hit.
These are beautiful you are very talented
Thank you. Of course, I didn't post my first one...I used a fabric with some stretch to it..Boy that was some large horse with tons of stuffing!!. But, I am one of those craftsman who learn from their mistakes.
