Finished make :: 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.

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. Stitch the decorations on to one side adding some embellishments if you wish. 

The sitch the two horse shapes together adding a hanging thread. Leave a gap to stuff the horse and the sew closed. 

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