Recent winter snow, crafting and play


Just when we hoped winter might be winding down, we received 17 inches of new snow. Spring will have to wait and we'll enjoy a little bit more snow play, sledding, and winter walks.



Because winter is still here, and we see the neighborhood horses still wearing their coats, I made some felt horse blankets for our farm horses.


And the peg people are getting dressed for the cold as well. I'm such a fan of these cozy wool covers on the peg people that I knitted a trial one for ours. I'm hoping to make a rainbow set.




Lastly, I made some recycled jeans bean bags. Filled with rice or beans, they have fleece or felt cutouts. I was hoping for a bigger fringe around the edge for something different. I am planning to make some mini bean bags this coming week.




I couldn't resist sharing this photo. I found this while picking up some toys. My daughters enjoy having family sets of animals or people, and now I see why. So, cute.

Hi Amy! Do you mind sharing the instructions for knitting the wool covers?

I don't have a set pattern for the peg people covers because we have some that are bigger than others, all different sizes. I made it like a small blanket to wrap around the peg person and then sewed it together. To make it, I chose a peg person and had it with me while I knit. I would stop and hold it up to it to compare. I decreased the stitches the last few rows so it would be snug at the neck. The hat was a few rows, decreasing, and ends sewed together. I also used a little craft glue to attach it to the head. Sorry my directions are so poor, I am so visual that I don't use or follow patterns well and end up "winging" it.
