Don't underestimate the importance of that second fact. Making something--anything really--that requires two hands and having it turn out well feels like a major accomplishment. I'm as proud of this bridle as I am of anything else I've made all year.
Apparition may not seem the most obvious choice to model a Western bridle, but since he has been my recovery buddy, he was kind of the only choice. Besides, I think he looks pretty spiffy in it. I think he wants to do Western Dressage!
