After 30 hours in the car, we made it to Phoenix. We had a fun, quick stop in Sante Fe this afternoon which was the highlight of my day. I watched the latest remake of Jane Eyre which was amazing. I don't know how many times of seen that movie but I love it.
We are halfway done with my Christmas ornament series... day 12! Today we are making Swedish dala horses. I got this pattern from a Holiday magazine this fall. I just love these little horses. I'm from Minnesota, and we have lots of Scandinavians in the state. All 3 of my little dala horses came from garage sales... who sells this stuff?!
I love the shape and the color. I even have a little chair covered in dala horse fabric.
First I cut the horses out of felt.
Next I stitched them together... I'm not going to lie... this took awhile. I added some details with felt and embroidery floss.
Here is mine next to the original from the magazine.
Next, my favorite part... embellishing.
I thought they were so cute I decided to sew one onto a baby hat... I know a very special mama who loves dala horses.
I added a little pompom to make it extra cute.
A card to go with the present. I got the stamp at a scandinavian store in Wisconsin.
I loooove it! I hope baby Osa will too. xoxo Jenni
