When we got home on New Years Eve Uber informed me we were staying up until midnight... not my initial plan (what?! 10pm is a completely acceptable time for bed on New Years!) and not only that, I had left all of my WIPs at Mum's house.... because I was going to bed!
So after a brief glance over my project inspiration file I decided Micah needed a stick something. I had saved this picture... I think 4 or so years ago. And after some digging I finally found that these were sold at Wisteria at some point- sorry not anymore.
So I went through my felt supply (I am trying really hard to use up as much of my supplies as I can over the next few months... since I will soon be giving up the closet space in the guest room), and decided it would have to be a plain old horse since I only seem to have large quantities of brown!
The project ended up taking the 2 hours until Uber finally let me sleep and then another hour or so the next day.
It was actually a lot of fun. I had no plan and no brain. So I just cut out the general shapes I thought should work and then sewed them and then flipped it inside out and looked at it again before making more adjustments.
Once the general shape was together I stuffed him and hand stitched on his white spot and eyes.
It did end up requiring a quick stop by Joanns for the dowel, a wood plaque to keep his neck nice, and the red strapping. I think the project ran under $6
And Micah finds it very funny. Although he prefers it if you (read Grandma) ride it around the house and chase him.
He does drag it around the house and I am sure when he gets a little bit bigger he will figure out the whole ridding it thing.
Meanwhile it's still getting plenty of love!
I also made a carrot... unfortunately I forgot to bring it for the pictures... oh well!
