I hope you all (in the US, anyway) have had a good 4th of July! I somehow ended up with the day off, which I’ve spent sewing and avoiding people, mostly.
Last month American Pharoah was the first horse in 37 years to win the Triple Crown. I don’t follow horse racing too closely (I’m really bad at keeping up with it) but this was SO exciting to see!!
For a while my newsfeed was filled with nothing but stories and photos of American Pharoah. (no complaints there) I felt inspired to make his winner’s blanket, and after finally collecting all the supplies, got to it today. Mostly, I just wanted to see if it would work.
The images were put together in Photoshop first, then transferred to fabric with an iron-on transfer paper. Luckily it turned out better than I thought it would. I’ll have to keep this in mind for future projects.
