Felt Stick Horse

I found this ole horsy when I was helping my daughter clean her room (don't ask me for the details on that). It brought back such good memories! We made it together when my eldest was 7 (she is 13 now) and it was very easy - we just used 2 pieces of large felt fabric and cut them in the shape of a "sock" - hand sewed them together, stuffed it, added button eyes, sewed closed the part where the stick went in and we had a lovely stick horse. I am not sure why we chose pink....but anyway...thought this might inspire someone out there. We got a lot of use out of him before he joined the stuffed animal zoo in my child's closet!
