Dala Horse Craftalong!

Yup, you heard me right, a Dala Horse Craftalong! Pam of Gingerbread Snowflakes rounded up a few of us Scandinavian crafters to start a Dala Horse Craftalong! So together with Carina of Carina's Craftblog, and Hanna of iHanna, we will be conducting a fun craftalong with all of you crafty folks out there to join in!

So what is a craftalong, you ask? Well, this is how it will work. The 4 of us will all be blogging for a month about Dala Horse themed crafts and offering helpful how-to's and tips. And we're asking you to join in the fun by creating either one of our projects or create your very own! Then once you get started, upload some of your progress over at the Flikcr group here.

Here are a few Dala crafts that you may have seen here on the Pickled Herring before:

The felted Dala coaster

Please join in the fun! I am currently working on many fun projects including a Dala apron, a Dala hot pad, Dala coasters....and so much more! Pam has made some pretty impressive 3D Dala horses along with some ornaments. And Carina has a freakin' sweet Dala embroidery pattern to check out, and Hanna has some sweet photos of the actual city where it all started!

I can't wait to see what all of you come up with, please join in the fun!


  1. Haha, love the bridal horse, what a fun idea. And the stamp, super cute! Can't wait for your next post!

  2. Woop! The Dala Craftalong is ON! ;-)

  3. Oh Kathryn, I am so excited that even with just recently getting married and moving across the country, you have made time to be a part of the Dala Craftalong.

    I had forgotten about your adorable felted coaster tutorial. And I would suggest you put that Tack stamp under lock and key because I want it really bad!!!

    I can hardly wait to see the apron! Hurry up and finish! :-)

  4. This is so awesome! :) I'm in! :)

    Thanks for getting together with your pals and making this craft along available to everyone. It's going to be a fun month and I look forward to playing and making some of the suggestions you, Hanna, Carina and Pam have put forward. Love from Australia.
