My name is Marzipan.
I am a cute little big stickhorse.
And I have a VERY long nosy nose!!!
It is kinda scary when this nose comes right at YA!
It is perfect for kissing though ….
I have pink ears and hair!
And big EYES!
And I am CUTE!!!!
Oh, just in case you wonder … I am named Marzipan because my favourite food are marzipan potatoes. :-)
BTW, did I mention that I am CUTE?
Okay, I think I better take over from here … otherwise this silly horse is going to keep talking about his cuteness until our ears fall off!
You guys have no idea how thrilled and relieved I was to see that little bear LOVES Marzipan!
Because on her wishlist to Santa there was one of those expensive and horrible pinky plasticy and … mommy just does not like it … horses that you can sit on.
I really did not want to buy one of those!
And I really should remember to throw out those stupid toy catalogues that put such stupid ideas in her head!!!
Anyway, as I had already planned to make her a stickhorse for her birthday but did not get to do it back then – I figured I could do it now.
I was inspired by the awesome horses and unicorns Lier from Ikat bag made.
And after Lier shared some true wisdom with me – you have to cut open the pant leg you are using in order to sew on the ears and the hair – it really was not that hard to make.
Yes, I could have figured the cutting open part myself … if I had been THINKING instead of just SEWING. ;-)
Sewing on the ears was actually the worst bit. I broke 3 needles while doing that! Argh!
But even with 3 broken needles still cheaper – and ALOT more fun – than that ugly pink plastic thingy …
