Huckleberry Horse



- +
What you get+-

Meet Huckleberry Horse! He’s a helpful sort of guy. And tall! He helped hang up that colorful banner. :-) He’d make a great birthday gift for a friend – or a cute decoration to use at every party celebration in your family.

You Get. . .

  • A digital pattern delivered by email. If you're not sure what that is, there's more info here.
  • Full-sized pattern pieces for Huckleberry, his shirt, overalls, party hat, and banner. No need to enlarge anything!
  • A detailed pattern loaded with full-color step-by-step photos and very clear instructions. You’ll never feel lost or wonder if you’re doing things right.
  • Links to videos teaching you all the techniques you need to know to complete the project. You can totally make this!


    8 inches tall (not counting his party hat)


    This one is a skill builder because I used Turkey work for his mane – and that’s a stitch that’s likely to be new to beginners. Don’t worry though! There’s a link to a video showing you how to do it. :-)

    Huckleberry the horse softie pattern is really perfect for portable work – or handwork while you watch TV.

    What You Need+-

    You'll need. . .

    • wool felt (1 sheet of copper, less than 1 sheet each of denim, old gold, coffee and mint leaf)
    • multicolored scraps of felt for the banner
    • matching embroidery thread (I used DMC #920, 336, 3820, 3371, mint leaf and white)
    • two 4.5 mm safety eyes
    • 8 American pennies (or other weights)
    • polyfill stuffing (I like Soft Touch Polyfil Supreme Fiberfill)
    • four 3/8″ clear buttons for joints
    • two 1/4” buttons for overalls
