Hobby Horse

I spent some time today making a hobby horse for Mary’s party. This was such an easy project and was completed in about 1 hour, though I had to take breaks to take the kids to the movies and to cook dinner. Imagine how much I could get done if I had my elf Clarence back.

I am making these so we can have a horse race at the party, it may seem that the girls are a little old for this kids of toy but Mary assures me it will be cool and I am not in a hurry to make the kids grow up any faster than necessary. If everything works out well I should have a whole herd of these wild horse by next weekend.

I made this one from upholstery fabric that was on sale for $3 a yard and it looks like the yard will make three horses.

Cricut Expression

Wow! Sheila came up yesterday and we spent the day playing with her new Cricut Expression (a Christmas gift). This was something we had looked at for the last year but with me unemployed it was not something I was prepared to buy.  I made name tags to add to the purses for Mary’s upcoming party and cute ribbons for the girls who win the games. I thought the ribbons for a horse party were perfect.This machine is awesome and Sheila was wonderful enough to leave it with me to play some more. I can wait to see what else I can create.
