Felt Stick Horse Tutorial [I believe children need rocking horses but have made my share of hobby horses when needed. Never used felt, boot socks as far as I recall. Anyway, these look pretty snazzy, don't you think? — 23-08-13]

Original Basic Stick Horse and Pony Pattern and Tutorial. I have made 3, and they turned out wonderfully! Notes: 1) Use duck cloth as directed, the other fabric I used bunched a little and gave me some neck wrinkles, 2) Make webbing casing for the bottom and stitch on (no glue!) 3) Add patch with name and bows on girl horses. 4) Use worsted weight yarn.(bulky is a little to big) 5) Have FUN!!!
