Luck: 12 Months of Ornaments

March ornament: Lucky Horseshoe

For my March ornament, I made this pale yellow horseshoe.  I found a basic horseshoe shape online and used it as my template.  The front is a pale yellow wool felt, and the back is dark brown felt.  I used scraps of flannel with pale green polka dots to craft a simple two-layer flower with a green button accent.  A bit of yellow and brown embroidery floss hold it together and add a little extra interest, and it hangs from a scrap of white boucle yarn.

In all honesty, I wasn't sure what I was doing when I started this ornament and didn't know if it would turn out well, so I didn't take any pictures of the process.  (So sad, I know.)  But check back later this month for a simple tutorial for making a lucky horseshoe of your own!
