Repurpose socks into these darling hobby horses!

Read my Fall 2017 Issue:

You will need:
thick woolen socks
2 large buttons
yarn or floss in different colors
batting/Polyfil
wooden rod, 3-4 feet

  1. Start with sewing buttons on each side.
  2. Using floss or yarn embroider eye lashes.
  3. Add the mane by sewing and tying pieces of wool/floss to the sock.
  4. Stuff the sock.
  5. Place on a rod and fasten by tying several times with yarn.
  6. Make the bridle by tying yarn around the nose and leave some extra for the reigns.
  7. GIDDY UP!

TIP:

Great way to reuse orphan socks!
