Hobby Horse


Hullo, how do you do?

I made this fantastic hobby horse for our niece! Her birthday was in March (ahem!), but since she's just turned three, hopefully she won't notice our belatedness! (Click on the photos if you want to see them closer.)


Below: the side view, then the mane (Paul picked out the yarn for it, and I threaded in each "hair" individually), and then the view from the bottom, as the head connects to the stick.




And, for a laugh, press the play button below... (thanks to Marilee for the hat!)
