Flossy The Pony

Decole pony to hold string.
Problem:
I found this cute Decole pony that holds baking twine. The first time I went to order this, it was sold out. Later I found it, but I thought how cool would it be to have my own cute little pony to organize my embroidery floss?

This is a pony I made to hold floss
So I drew my own version, had it laser cut from wood, and tried it out. It worked like a charm! Now my floss is so organized, thanks to Flossy the Pony!

Embroidery floss pony.
Thanks, Flossy! Now I will have a whole corral of Flossies!

Wasn't your inflatable horse named Flossie too?

I am not sure if I should. What do you think? I got some items made from bamboo and they are sooooo pretty! It is darker than the poplar I usually choose.

Oh my gosh, I NEED those! LOL DD is obsessed with horses and I've got floss coming out of my ears! Well, not really, but certainly out of the box I have them stuffed in!
PLEASE make them available in the shop! :)

Lee - Yes, please link on your stitching blog! I will take a look and let me know!

Frizz - I am glad you like Flossy.

Tammy - I will let people know when I have some Flossies ready. I tried mine out last night and it fits one floss roll! It looks so cute.
