These are…eh.

Hi all! Kirstin here. I’ve been busily not succeeding at felting horse Christmas tree ornaments. I’m just not feeling these little guys.


It’s supposed to be a palomino with a few vaguely native American-y designs. I tried felting on the accents, but the figures are just too small, about three inches from nose to back hooves. It came out looking very blob-y.


“I shall mark my horse with the ancient symbol of the turkey, may good luck and gravy be upon us.”

The embroidery is only slightly better. That’s supposed to be a hand print, but it looks more like a little turkey. And it took way too long to do the embroidery. So I don’t know.

Any ideas? Without embellishment, it looked way lame. I was thinking maybe I’d just braid each one a holiday themed wreath to wear?



About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
