I was born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky and this is a big week for us. Tomorrow is the 135th running of the Kentucky Derby, so all week we've been celebrating the KY Derby Festival. In honor of that, and because one of my Aunt's Derby crafts inspired me, I made egg jockeys.
My Aunt makes clay pot jockeys and uses half of a plastic egg for the hat. I decided to expand on that, and make the jockeys completely out of eggs. They're going to be a big hit at the Derby party tomorrow!





I have posted a tutorial over here.

Hope you enjoy them. Thanks for looking. Smiley

Your little egg jockeys are so cute! They don't even really look like eggs anymore.

Thanks everyone! Smiley I'm going to go ahead and say that Friesan Fire is my horse pick for Kentucky Derby 135! Happy Derby!

How cute, I think I'll make them with my 6 year old, maybe make a family can't wait!
They could definitely be used to make little people, and not just jockeys!

I'm not a huge bourbon fan, but I do like horses and hats!  Cheesy
