Sunny Stick Horses

These three are enjoying a bit of sunshine before their trip to New Jersey.

 

Check out this trio and the other handmade stick horses at my Etsy shop!

Stick Horse Remake

Here is a recreation of a lost horse for a little girl. It’s not one of my patterns but we were trying to replicate it as close to the original as possible, down to the chenille bedspread. It is not for sale.

 

New Faces in the Herd

Come and meet 6 new faces at Lil’s Garden!
They’re all ready for your own stick and a great adventure!

Honey Bee

 This is an updated version of the old Honey Bee. Sometimes a fabric for a favorite horse will become discontinued so I’ll let the listing slide until I find a new fabric. This one just grabbed me!

Josie

 A Hot Pink Zebra? Why not?  She’s so bright and vibrant!  I actually had this one planned for last fall but it got put on the back burner for our move.

Kiwi

 I love the fabric on this one. It reminds me of feathers. I had quite a few requests for green horses last year so I just had to oblige!

Fergus mac Róich

 Another green with a really fun pattern! Very earthy!

Eugene

 I chose a light weight denim for this one. I think he turned out pretty well and he’ll be a little more durable than the cotton prints.

Brownie

The Chestnut / Sorrel is another revamp. His old fabric is being discontinued so I found this suitable replacement fabric that I think looks a lot better.

Roses or Candy for Valentines?

How about a Stick Horse?

Meet the newest member of my herd.
Chérie, (think French here!) is for Valentines Day. 
I fell in love with this cute hearts and glitter fabric at Hobby Lobby and after a turn on my sewing machine, this is what came out! Not meaning to brag, but I think she turned out pretty cute!
I only got enough fabric to make four and once they are gone, I wont be able to make anymore until the next holiday~ and by then the design may be different, depending  on the availability of the fabric.

Horse Head Tuesday!

Latest Additions
Christmas orders are getting started and I’m sewing horses almost every day now. 
Tuesdays are my most productive days (hence the title) as that is my day off from my 8:30-5 job.
I will spend almost the whole day sewing! 
(thank goodness my daughter Heather loves to cook otherwise we’d starve!)
Tuesdays are the days I usually add new colors to the lineup~ if I don’t have any orders for that day. 
I really love seeing a flat piece of fabric come alive into a new horse as I cut it out and put it together.
Then I get to name them am create a little bio for them.
The whole process is a lot of fun!
old faithful
And here is the magic horse machine!
It’s an old circa 1960’s Singer that I bought at a garage sale several years ago for a whooping $25.00! 
We keep it maintained and it runs smoothly (a little minor tweaking now and then).
I hope we can keep it going forever because nothing is built to last like these old machines! 
It still has metal gears inside.
I have a fetish for old sewing machines and pick them up whenever I find them…. 
You should see my collection ~ but that’s a whole other blog post!
I’d love to have you visit my Etsy shop!
