Cedar is a real character and great fun to make. He stands 8 inches tall (one hand I believe in horse terms : )
My pony here is made in a fun printed fabric, but Cedar can be made in a range of fabrics - fur, cotton, velvet, cord, fleece, linen. I think he could look great in a textured fabric too.
This is the downloadable version and includes instruction booklet in pdf format with 2 jpg pattern sheets. The pattern includes complete instructions to take you through every process of making your own horse, including a simple bridle and saddle : )
He has a little needle sculpting to his large nose and eyes (nothing daunting and full instructions are givein)
Cedar can have a safety or traditional cotter pin neck joint and has button and thread jointed limbs. I've used glass eyes on my horse, but instructions are included with his pattern to fit safety or embroidered eyes in case Cedar will be joining one of our younger collectors
I think he is a great pattern to make and should be suitable whatever your sewing ability with lots of pics and tips. He should provide lots of opportunities to get creative and if you need help at any point, remember I am always happy to help : )
