Dala horse decoration

There are lots of colourful Dala Horses from which you can take inspiration but I decided I wanted to make a simple red and white one to go with the other decorations I have on my tree.

To get the shape of the horses right I used this this template I then figured out the design I wanted on my horse.

Next step was to cut the shapes out in felt then I stitched the decorations on to one side. The next step was to stitch the two horse shapes together adding a hanging thread, leaving a gap to stuff the horse and then sew closed. 

And this is what the final decoration looks like ...
