The horse you can hold in your arms
Imagination can take you Anywhere!
A squishy and cuddly horse who makes the best bedtime buddy. She is so velvety smooth when made with minky, but other fabrics such as fleece also work well.
This sewing project is suitable for an adventurous confident beginner since the there isn’t any complicated sewing and I walk you through each step with detailed instructions and photos to illustrate each step. Creativity is in your hands as you make anywhere from a pink pony to a realistic horse. Includes both the Floppy Filly and Classic Colt (formerly named the Canvas Colt) and a unicorn horn.
Dress him up a little with a paddock blanket because not only is it fun but it is a quick and easy sewing project to embellish your new equine. (link below)

Thank you so much Alice!! I absolutely appreciate your feedback and am so happy you enjoyed this project!!
I got confused on a few bits but overall this is an awesome pattern! I definitely need to make many more of the floppy filly’s! I wish I could add a photo of my finished product!

Very easy pattern to follow with great photos as well as written instructions for us visual learners. Also plenty of bonus bits to customise pony to unicorn or Alicorn, plus different ways to do eyes, mane and arms. Such a cute characterful face it’s a lively pattern
Kim Kass –
This is the first pattern I purchased from Rena. I fell in love with her patterns right away. Easy to understand. I have made a few from my later fathers shirts. They were a big hit.
My first pattern from Rustic Horseshoe but it was so good I’ve purchased more patterns. Easy to follow instructions with photos to illustrate. Great tips and suggestions for adaptations. The floppy filly I made for my daughter was so popular I ended up having to make 3 more for friends. The classic colt was also a winner and I made him a rug (pattern available free here)halter and boots. He also worked brilliantly in denim with small coin pockets included in the design for kids to put things in. Thanks for a brilliant pattern.
