Nutty Nag Plush Horse Doll Sewing Pattern and Tutorial DIGITAL PDF

(7 customer reviews)


Quirky horse cuddles are the best!


The horse you can bring Inside to cuddle

Imagination can take you Anywhere!

An adorable plush doesn’t have to be a difficult project!  This horse doll is quirky, fun and full of cuddles.  This project is suitable for an adventurous confident beginner.  Step by step I walk you through the process with detailed instructions accompanied by photos to illustrate each step.

There are no difficult or tricky sewing techniques therefore when taken step by step before you know it you have built a darling pony.  You will sew curves and optional applique.  I recommend sewing this plush with a sewing machine with some hand work for closing the openings used for stuffing and attaching the optional eyelids.  With the right skill and time, this project can be sewn by hand if so desired.

Bonuses, variations and options give you plenty of choices and ideas to make many unique and fun quirky horses or donkeys or unicorns or pegasus…you get the idea.

    really sim0le to follow pattern with great tips and modification ideas. The pattern is very well drawn up and fits together brilliantly. I’ve made these in cuddle fleece, denim and cotton fabrics and they all look fabulous .
    Great for kids but equally great as trailer mascots or horsey friend replicas
