Made by e: Hobby Horse with Matching Pants

On a blog I follow, I saw that they made a stick horse.  When I saw it, I thought it would be perfect for my nephew Miles' fifth birthday today.  As his birthday approached and I started thinking about it, it just got more and more daunting.  The blog left out the hardest part: how to make the actual horse!  Do they think that I'm an artist?  Sheesh!  So I enlisted my design staff (cough, cough, Chuck) and he and I worked a mock-up and then this final version.  Because I'm not going to mail and entire broom stick nor a stuffed horse head, we'll have to see how it all comes together.

I then made some cowboy bandana pants to match.
Happy Birthday Miles! We love you!
