How to make eyes for your hobby horse

How to instructions

  • 1

    Draw the shape of an eye on a piece of black felt and cut it out. Use the eye as a template to trace and draw another, identical eye.

  • 2

    Cut out two slightly smaller eye shapes in white felt. Glue them to the two black eyes, to make the whites of the eyes.

  • 3

    Cut out two smaller circles in black felt. Glue them to the whites of the eyes, as pupils.

  • 4

    Glue both eyes to the hobby horse with a hot glue gun. Sew a few stitches around the edges of the eyes, to make sure theyre thoroughly attached.

  • 5

    Cut out two crescent shapes for each eye from felt. Choose a felt colour that matches the horses coat. Glue them above and below the eyes, as eyelids. Then sew the edges in place at the top and bottom, so that they sit firmly against the horses coat.

  • 6

    Draw a pupil with a white Posca pen or attach a decorative stone.

  • 7

    Glue lashes right along the eyelids as the final touch. Its up to you if you want both upper and lower eyelashes.

Make beautiful eyes for your hobby horse out of felt! Using multiple layers of felt will give the eyes a thick, lovely texture. Adjust the size, shape and colour of the eyes to suit your horse. It may be helpful to test things out a bit before you glue them on. We recommend a glue gun for gluing, but bear in mind that the tip gets very hot. If you like, you can also add an extra twinkle to your horse's eye with a beautiful decorative stone as a pupil.
