I am making two of these quilts for twin 7 year old girls. Here is the first finished one:

The vintage embroidery patterns are from patternbee.com, the horse fabric is called Stablemates from Alexander Henry. This is a lap size quilt.

Thanks for all the positive feedback!

This is such a great idea!  Where did you get those larger than life needles?  Great job!
I found them in Walmart, they were under $6.00. I tried knitting with a superchunky yarn out of curiosity....... awkward!

Thanks everybody!

Quick question: Did you make the huge needles or did you find them somewhere?
Happy Halloween!
I bought them at WalMart for $5.47!

Thank you!!!
I am so glad I was able to get the idea from my head to an actual wearable costume.

It all started with a giant bouncy ball, plaster fabric stuff, newspaper, glue, cheap yarn and gobs of hot glue

Then I worked up some yarn hair.

close up of ball detail:

We're not sure if the hair will make it for Halloween night, it kind of bugs her a little. The ball is surprisingly light and pretty flexible considering the plaster. I wish I had some daytime photos of it in action but these will have to do!

I love the simplicity of redwork, it's just pleasing to the eye (well, my eye anyway).
That's the beauty of crafts... you can make 'em any way you want!
For a better appreciation of redwork, check out the work of this woman:

Do you have any pictures to show as an example? It sounds great but I can't quite wrap my little brain around the directions  Huh
