Have just finished these, and my son is just overjoyed about it :P
The pattern was free, and fantastic, I'm very happy with how they turned out. You can find the pattern here - http://www.allcrafts.net/fjs.htm?url=bazarpimpampum.blogspot.com/2007/06/little-feet-pattern-receita.html

Flower Pillow 003

I've made a very image heavy tutorial for the layered petal pillow I posted here yesterday, for those who were interested in knowing how I sewed it. You can find the instructions here.

If something isn't clear, or if you have questions, you can message me or leave a comment.

Finally a photo of the actual BASKET!!

It still needs decorated and all that but it was time to show it off a bit.  (that bit of ribbon was just to test that it would work for what I'm planning)



One more pic this way. )

My friend & former co-worker Margie introduced me to the art/craft of resculpting model horses (one artist's explanation here), and I thought it was pretty neat.  Last weekend, looking for a gift for a 6yo, I stumbled across Breyer kits and couldn't resist this one for my 5yo daughter.

Victoria devoured the booklet that explained horse coloration and how to paint special kinds of horse colors and how to mix paint... she's a great reader, but the content was a little overwhelming.  Her eyes lit up when I suggested making fairy tale horses. That got rid of worries about "doing it right" (she's a budding perfectionist).  She instructed me to paint mine in purple, and she would do pinks & blues. She painted on a saddle.  I played with mixing & shading colors like I used to do for D&D miniatures -- we both had a lot of fun. 

Now introducing ... our Bippity Boppity Boo horses!
