This week's Iron Craft theme was Ethnic Crafting. We were supposed to make something inspired by a country other than our own. I tossed around several different ideas. I thought some teeny tiny French berets for my chickens would be cute. BUT, since I'm already the "crazy chicken lady" in the neighborhood, I didn't know if I should add berets into the equation.
We also had a super busy week working around the house. We've been moving in some new furniture and bedding, reorganizing and doing some overdue patching and painting. I found myself a bit short on time so I decided to go with a quick project. I found this super easy tutorial over at Sew Can Do (one of my favorite craft blogs). I knew I had some fun ethnic food buttons that I'd been saving for just the right project. So, I made Chinese Takeout Ponies and Taco Ponies for the the girls!
These came together really quickly. I'm planning to sort through my buttons to make a few more sets for the girls for the summer.
