(Every week until December 1st we will be making a small Christmas ornament that can be used in our Pocket Advent Calendar. Join us in making all 24 or just pick and choose your favorites.)
This week’s ornament is a step back to childhood, a tiny, stuffed, felt rocking horse.
It is sewn together with just an easy whipstitch and details are glued on, so it does not require a more than basic sewing skills. I kept mine relatively minimal, but you can modify it with all the details you want, add a mane, tail or face.
Felt Rocking Horse Ornament
The finished rocking horse is approximately 3″ x 3″.
- brown felt
- black felt
- small embroidery scissors
- glue stick (optional)
- yellow or other color felt for saddle
- matching brown embroidery floss
- black embroidery floss
- small jump ring
1. Print out rocking horse pattern and cut out.
If you’d like to make your horse a dala horse instead of a rocking horse cut the horse pattern out without the rocking base. Make the horse red or blue. Sew or glue on decorative ribbon.
