Jan's beaded horse

In our recent beading projects, Jan decided to use this image of a horse printed on black fabric to embellish. She cut out the image, put it on a piece of red craft felt and beaded and embroidered it. Then she couched down a fluffy piece of yarn around the edge of the black before putting a black fabric on the back, bringing the edges around to the front and using blanket stitch, making a binding. It is supposed to be a postcard but it is a bit big for that. I'm sending it to Emma over at She is having a birthday and 50 people are sending her birthday postcards. I'm #49.
