This is the first tutorial I've ever done. It's for sock stick horse - really easy, really fast, really cute and *really* inexpensive. It would make a fun Christmas present. My four 1/2 year old plays with hers all the time, and my 2 year old loves hers.

I bought a pack of 10 pairs of cotton socks for $6, a sheet of 4 buttons for 50 cents, two $1 dowels and used 1/2 a bag of $3 batting for two horses. I used fabric and ribbon scraps I had. So each horse cost me $3.10. You could do it even cheaper if you used all items that you had on hand already.

These are so cute! Thanks for the tutorial too! I think I might try making some of these for my niece and nephew when they're old enough (my neice is 8 months and the little boy hasn't even been born yet! haha)

I really love the pink and brown one best. =)

Use what talent you possess - the woods would be very silent if no birds sang except those that sang best
