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.

Talk to Me
If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.
For example, if you want to hire someone to die cut all the felt pieces for you, or want to manufacture kits for this design, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-) firstname.lastname@example.org
Spend some pleasant handwork time making this sweet horse for someone you love.
