A Horse of a Different Fabric

Another stuffed critter.  I made this little horse for my oldest friend.  We met the first day of 7th grade and have been friends since.  She always was better at any sort of artistic stuff than I, and in fact I made her this horse because I remembered one she made when we were probably in Junior High School.  It also had a yarn tail.  I also made it for her because we used to go ride my horse together, so she can look at this silly little creation and it will remind her of all of those wonderful times we had together.  🙂

Anyway, it’s Handmade Monday and I’ve really been remiss (sick is more like it) but I’m back!  So, after you check out the little Sweater Pony, go on over to Handmade Monday and see what everyone else is doing.  I know they are doing wonderful things!

    He is beautiful, I love his long flowing tail, and how lovely that he is associated with such wonderful memories. xxx

      I liked that yarn so much I went back and bought it in a couple of other colors. Now I might have to make some more horses. 🙂

    Lovely little pony with so many memories! Its funny how you instinctively know what your friend will think when she sees it – my oldest friend too would immediately know what I was meaning. Mich x

      Well, yes, it’s so nice to have that sort of friend. We have a couple of inside jokes (I’m sure you have those with your friend also) and I”m sure no one else would even think they were funny, but we think they are hysterical! I think that’s what makes “old” (and I mean that not in the age sort of way haha!) friends the best. 🙂

    Thank you for all of your nice comments. I so enjoyed making this guy. I already have another one planned and another old sweater to cut into pieces! I don’t know what I will do when I run out of old sweaters (which I will do quite soon). Maybe I will have to resort to Goodwill. Or maybe by then I will be tired of making animals from them. Now I’m sorry that I sent most of them to the thrift store a few years ago when I was cleaning out my closets. Oh well, I’m sure someone else is enjoying them. 🙂

    What a lovely thoughtful gift – I love making and receiving gifts that have wonderful stories and memories behind them 🙂 I hope your sweater dilemma is resolved soon xx
