I made this horse for a swap and I must say I'm quite proud of it! It's not done in Tunisian but using the Flat Tapestry Crochet technique. It's basically tapestry crochet, but instead of turning your work around at the end of each row, you switch hands (1 row left-hand, 1 row right-hand) - I can now officially say I'm an ambidextrous crocheter Cheesy


I started with this image (found on Google) and, using KnitPro, turned it into this chart. Then I painstakingly re-coloured all the squares in my 6 colours (using Fireworks) and ta-da:


I used less than one skein of each colour (black, burgundy, red, orange, yellow, peach). Since I had so many colours, I didn't carry them, so the back was pretty messy, but I hid everything with some felt. I mounted it on 2 wooden dowels which I painted in black and added some frilly ribbon to give it a more finished look.

And just because, I made matching coasters:
