The Carousel

It has been figured out! Jmjtat figured it out on Craftree. I am going to try to make the carousel from the book by Ineke Kuiperij. I need to finish the "doily" so I know how big to make the substructure for the floor. The doily will be the floor. I plan to 3d print the parts I need to hold it together. Ineke used wood and a metal dart board frame. This will take a while though. I was trying not to say so if i got discouraged or it didn't work out, then I could duck and cover. Ha ha. Told you if anyone guessed, I would admit it. So now you know.

Does anyone know if anyone else has attempted this? I have not seen it anywhere.


  1. Not seen this pattern before, I look forward to seeing how you get on,

  2. I made a hot air balloon once and thought that was ambitious. This is really a stunner! Can't wait to see your progress!

  3. I just saw someone on Instagram trying this unless it was you. I saw it once long ago and wanted to make it but could never find the book. It is a mega project but a wonderful end result. 🌹😄🌹

    1. Not me on Instagram, whatever that is. Only thing I do online is this and Craftree.

  4. Okay there is a blog called Cathy's Thread Sample Exchange she has the book and did one pony from it.

  5. Wow, great choice ! Ineke does magic with her miniature 3Ds. Good catch by jmjtat :-)

  6. Ah, no ducking and diving round here! Good luck, it's a big project.
