sewing pattern makes this hobby horse toy BabyMoonBoutique‘s Sheila Sherman knows that handmade gifts are best… and that you have better things to do with your hard-earned moola than to give it to the post office…

So, instead of ordering up a BabyMoon-made hobby horse by mail, now you can go for the DIY pony pattern at Etsy.

The hobby horse sewing pattern is 20 pages with 36 color photos; $8 brings it to you by email as a printable PDF.

Sheila says the materials cost for making a hobby horse should run about fifteen bucks, with the bonus opportunity to use up those bits-and-pieces of sewing and craft supplies you’ve got lying around.

Sounds like a deal to me… and about the only thing you’ll miss out on is the mild amusement of watching your postal carrier trying to stuff a horse-shaped package into your mailbox!

    I think you might have misread something, Mrs. Tantrum – Sheila’s pattern is still the same price ($8) when I looked in her Etsy shop today. Uh, can’t do much about the 2 weeks before Christmas part :) ‘cuz my calendar says the same as yours!

    Too bad the pattern is $20! And too bad it is like 2 weeks before Christmas that I found this! I would totally be making just the heads for Bacon’s “ladies” he wants them to have “soft ponies to snuggle with at night in their beds” this would be a perfect pillow! Modified some of course!

    That pony is real cute… Just don’t know if I have the time to make it on my own. My son would love to snuggle with it.

    Unicorn for the princess… makes sense! What I want to know is this: when the unicorn’s head eventually fell off, did you mount it on the wall like a big-game-hunter’s trophy?

    One of the first things I bought my daughter when she was born was a hobby unicorn. Heh. She rode that thing until the head finally fell off.
