    A friend let me take a small hank of hair off of one of her horses tail and I made this little basket out of it. It was only my second horsehair basket that I have made (the first will never be shown -what a learning experience [​IMG] ) and I am really kinda happy how it turned out.

    Oh my goodness! You should be happy! That is beautiful! I didn't know that was done with horse hair...straw, yes, yarn yes, but horse hair? Probably been around for a while, and I just haven't ever seen it done before. Thanks for sharing!

    Don't deny that talent! Well done! People should always stay in touch with their creative side-even if its a doodle on a scrap piece of paper.

    Ignore Batz. If you say yes, she's gonna send you some of her arm hair.


    ETA: Your basket is beautiful, and I am jealous.
