Fancy Pony Hats Continued

I have real horse to pics to post from a horse show and friends playing with Dickie. I'm working on that post right now ;) Sadly though my horse time
Is still really limited. If I go see Dickie that's it for the day. I can push myself further but I will pay for it later. And I don't want to take any chances of doing long term damage to the joint. 

Making pony hats has kept me tolerant of rest time. I think I'm channeling my former figuring skating days because I'm obsessed with sparkle. I started a Facebook page because I'm casually selling them.

This is one of my favorites so far. I had a hard time getting to scallops to look tidy and symmetrical. I think I finally got the hang of it. 

This one doesn't show up great in the photo. It has a white/silver twisted cord. I also found this thin metallic string for the edges. It was for a gelding so I didn't add too much frilly stuff. 

This was for one for my best friends. She loves sparkle so I went over the top. It really shines in person. 

I made bonnets for several geldings so U was excited when I friend wanted pink and sparkle for her mare. 

The rescue Dickie came from is having a benefit auction so I'm currently making my self crazy sewing crystals onto this one. I can't wait to see the finished product. 

Photos don't do this one justice. The white and dark navy have subtle sparkle and there's a strip of tiny rhinestones. They twinkle in sunlight but are small so it doesn't look like it came from the wardrobe of a Vegas showgirl. 


  1. Those are so cool!!!!!! I hope your hip is doing well. I can't wait for you to be able to get out and do things again. :D
