My little friend Nik is in a French immersion school. Last Spring he was cast as a poulin (young horse) in his class production of 'Francois et le loup' (St. Francis of Assisi And The Wolf.) I was asked to make his costume.

His mom bought McCall's M6106 and the fabric, a light fleece and upholstery fabric for the hooves. The mane, tail and eyelashes were fuzzy fake wool (I'm sure it has a proper name.)

I picked up a dinosaur mask at the dollar store to use as a base for the head. I should have left on the elastic strap so it didn't spread out so much and tried to build up the centre of the head, especially around the nostrils (which are too dark) so it was more horse-shaped before I glued on the fabric.

Notice the little knit bag he's wearing - he and his classmates each made one - it's that sort of school. Alas, apparently his Greek grandmother is quite - boys are not supposed to knit! But I see a Craftster in the making!

Lovely little horse. That is so sweet. So clever of you to modify a dinosaur mask.
And of course boys knit - they practically invented it, just think of all the sailors who used to knit on long voyages.

Thanks, Elderflower (What a lovely handle!) I didn't know sailors knit! I have seen fishers mending their nets using 'macrame', so why not knitting as well!
