For The Love of Legends: Spirit of a Unicorn

For the Love of Legends Blog Tour hosted by CraftingCon and Phat Quarters

Joining the Love of Legends tour today with my daughter's (current) favorite mythological creature - the Unicorn!

I remember as a child listening to Roger Whittaker sing "The Unicorn" (a song depicting Noah's Ark and the failure to collect the unicorn, thus explaining why there are none to be seen today). The idea of such a magical being sparks imagination and story telling, and it's no wonder children love them.

I hadn't thought about unicorns for a long time, and I'd certainly never tried to study them much. In searching for some inspiration, I came across this website, which goes into explaining the sign of the unicorn - I've never heard of primal astrology, and I read the description with some amusement.

Unicorns are "outgoing, energetic, smart, and unique...they can also be self-centered, attention-starved, restless, and excessively eccentric."

I think that describes Nat to a T. (To be fair to her, most of their "negative" qualities describe a lot of small children - lol!)

"(Unicorn)s are my spirit animal"

  1. I love the idea of a unicorn as a spirit animal! I love the rainbow print you used too:)

    1. It just fits her, somehow! ;) I love the fabric too, I wish I had more of it!! The thrift store just had the one little piece, barely enough for her tunic, and I have no idea where it originally came from!

  2. I'm all over the idea of a unicorn (or another beast of legend) being a spiral animal. Cute shirt! :)
