Ok, I'm nervous. I've never posted anything I made here before, and I hope you don't all hate me. (this is someone else. My friend is crazy. That is all.) Right, that was KariudoMegami typing over my shoulder. Anyway, here's a little felt horsie I made:

Any chance of a tutorial for that cute little guy? i Love him, he's adorable! I'm having visions of either a HUGGGEEEE one which is like a really comfy cuddly pillow...possibly along the lines of a cushtie...or fill him with beans and make one of those things great for sore necks!!

Of course, a tutorial... I've never written one before, so i hope it actually turns out helpful...

Unless stated otherwise, use a whipstitch.

you take some felt, cut out the body shape out of 2 different colors, then cut those pieces in half widthwise.
sew a front of one color to a back of the other color, repeat with the other side,
Take the piece that is going to be the top, cut a slit in it where the tail will be.
Take your rope or yarn or whatever, tie it in a knot, and put the unknotted end through the slit to the outside (the knot should be on the side with the stitches.)
Sew the knot into the fabric and suture up the edges of the tailslit.
Now put the top and bottom of your horsie together, insides facing outwards. (the tail will be between the pieces of felt) and whipstitch around the edges, leaving it unsewn where the head will be.
Turn right side out and you have your body

Cut 2 horse profile shapes (including the ears) out of one color of felt. Cut a strip of the other color as wide as you want the head to be.
Put the mane on the long strip the same way as the tail, with smaller chunks or yarn/rope/whatever.
sew the strip to one profile piece,with the mane turned inside, push the ears inside as well. (you will have to use a running stitch to sew the seam where the ears are.)
Repeat with the other side.
Flip the head rightside out now.

Stuff the body, then the head
Stick the base of the neck inside the neck hole on the body, and use a running stitch to sew the 2 pieces together.

Eyes and markings can be painted on with acrylics after construction, or teddy bear eyes and fleece or felt markings can be sewn on beforehand.

Any questions?
