A few weeks ago we were at the museum and in the shop they had hobby horses. Hobby Horses are a horse head on a stick that you “ride” on.
Little Man asked if he could have one. Well at 25 bucks it just wasn’t worth it for me and I knew he probably wouldn’t play with it as much as he thought he would and I knew I could make him one for less than half the price. I had actually mentally bookmarked one in the Living Crafts magazine, Winter 09. So i asked him if he liked it and he did. So we raided Daddy’s sock drawer and picked out a sock for the head, yarn for the reins and mane and I got to work. I am happy with how it came out and we only spent about 10 bucks, for the broom handle, bells and buttons for his eyes.
Now that the cowboy or Knight has his noble steed 🙂 We also did some rescuing.
This beauty was rescued from the Salvation Army for $2.99. Little Man loves it and sleeps with every night. They actually had a few crochet blankets but this one was the best and it’s the perfect size for him.
Little Man starts kindergarten Sept. 9 so we are slowly getting ready. I can’t believe my Little Guy will be gone all day! It will take some adjusting, especially on my part but I am excited for him as well. But with some of that free time we should hopefully see some more blog posts around here!!
Hope everyone is doing well.
