I just adore horses—it's one trend that I hope never goes away! Here's a simple applique project. We used store bought throw pillows to start with, so only a little hand stitching is required. You could change up this project to be any animal silhouette you like—but we loved using yarn for the horses' manes. Too cute!1. Supplies: Throw pillows, fabric (we used tapestry), yarn, needle and thread, scissors, sharpie, tissue paper. 2. First, draw a horse silhouette onto tissue paper with the sharpie. It might take a few tries to get it just right! 3. Once you've made a silhouette, use it as a pattern on the fabric. 4. After you've cut out the horse in fabric, begin sewing pieces of yarn onto the edge, right below the ears. This will be the horse's mane! 5. Continue this process all the way down the back of the horse, then trim the yarn for the perfect length. 6. Hand stitch the horse onto the top of the pillow!These horse pillows are the latest addition to my bedroom and I couldn't love them more! xo. emma
Yarn used for horse mane's c/o Premier Yarns, and patterned fabric for second horse c/o Waverly.

Week 6 will be the best for me personally because I barely have any natural light entering my house,either due to trees by the windows,windows not facing the sun’s direction or the covered patio and covered carport which lets in absolutely no kitchen light for us to photograph our baked goods that my kids and I like to make,so I would love to learn how to get better indoor photos using the scant amount of light we have.
Oh my how cute!! I live in the west around a lot of cowboys and i just might have to make these!!!!
This is adorable
I will be trying this right away!!!!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!! Cuteness attack!!!!!!! These are so cute! I have a horse [sweet ole bay Quarter Horse gelding :)] and I could SO make these for my room. I could do a variation with it and make it look like him (red-brown with black mane). So adorable! Thank you all so much for being you and running this blog! It is such a blessing and is my new favorite site/blog.
