With the purchase of this product you will receive our hobby horse sewing pattern “HOLLY” including detailed sewing instructions as well as matching embroidery patterns for embroidering the eyes and nostrils of the horse with your embroidery machine. After purchase and payment you can download and print out the instructions as a PDF on A4 paper. The embroidery patterns come as a .ZIP file which you need to unpack on your computer.

A hobby horse is anything but a dusty horse on a stick from grandma’s attic! Because the modern hobby horses inspire young and old with their realistic appearance! This is due to the detailed shape, the way its mane blows in the wind, and the different shades which can turn them into small pieces of art.

Our hobby horse can even do a lot more, because the pattern includes not only the classic stick horse variant but also options for modifying it to a hairdressing head, a wall decoration or a horse for buckling up! There are even possibilities to sew a unicorn hobby horse or a donkey.

Another TIP: We also have an ebook for matching hobby horse accessories (halter & lead ropes) in the shop! It is also available together with this pattern as another great discount bundle.

✄ Materials & tools

Materials needed to sew the hobby horse:

  • Fabric for head side, gussets, bottom and ears, approx. 75x75 cm (30x30”) or 45x130 cm (18x51”)
  • For an optional separated mouth: fabric for mouth, upper and lower mouth gusset as well as inner mouth part, approx. 15x50 cm (6x30”)
  • Fabric for the blaze, approx. 7x20 cm (3x8”)
  • Black felt for eyes and nostrils, approx. 4x12 cm (2x8”)
  • White hand embroidery thread for the eye twinkles, approx. 20 cm (8”)
  • Double-sided iron-on adhesive webbing (e.g. Bondaweb or Heat’n Bond), approx. 20x8 cm (8x3”)
  • Toy filling, approx. 500 g (1.1 lbs)
  • For the mane: Ball of wool, hair extensions (at least 20 cm / 8” long) or jersey straps
  • Medium weight fusible interfacing to reinforce ears & inner mouth part, 15x45 cm (6x18”), or to stabilize ALL fabric pieces 45x130 cm (18x51”)

Short-pile plush fabrics (sometimes called minky or velboa fabric) are best, but you can also use other fabrics such as fleece, velour, sweat or woven fabric. A long-pile plush fabric or teddy plush is also suitable if you want a particularly fluffy horse.

Optionally required:

  • Fabric paint for painting eyes & nostrils and for shading the fur

We recommend MUCKI fabric finger paint (Affiliate Link) or the colours from Creall Tex (Affiliate Link). You can do most of the shadings with black and white, possibly pink or red to paint “fur-free” areas on the mouth. Note: According to our tests, the Creall colours last best on polyester plush.

Additionally only for hobby horse variant:

  • Stick with a maximum diameter of 3 cm (1 1/5”), the length is a matter of taste
  • Wool, cord or rope to wrap around the fabric at the stick opening, approx. 50 cm (20”)
