Recently a friend asked if I could make her nieces a hobby horse. She had seen them around but couldn’t find anyone that had free spots to make her some. I’d been wanting to make one for my daughter for awhile but just hadn’t gotten around to it. So she put me to the test and here’s what I’ve created so far. Meet Bluebell…..
I didn’t use a pattern, just drew a basic horse shape and away I went. I hand embroidered the eyes and around the eye patches. I picked up some ideas from a few other sources. Melly and Me do a wonderful pattern and WhimsyWoo sell some beautiful wooies on Facebook along with Georgie Porge.
This one is for my daughters friends birthday and I’ve ordered some beautiful fabric to make Jassy one and some dinosaur print to make Billy a dinosaur (we will see how that one goes). Then to make two for my friend. I can’t wait to get started!
