Horse from socks Such an article is a great option forjoint creativity with your child. A beautiful and soft horse, made by own hands, immediately like your baby and can become a good friend to him. To make this toy you will need a pair of socks, eyes for the toy (you can take the buttons), additional buttons of another shape (they will go for making nostrils) are additionally useful. For the tail and mane, prepare the yarn, do not forget about the stuffing material, it can be a sintepon. Take one sock and fill it with a sintepon approximately to the foot. So you form the head. Tie her thread and cut (photo 1). In accordance with photo number 2, you need to form the body and the paws of the horse from the second sock. To do this, cut it in the middle to the center of the foot. Turn out the sock and sew all the slices from the wrong side, using the "back needle" seam. Then turn the product to the front. You need to trim the sock rubber band, in addition grabbing a few more centimeters. The resulting cut must be gathered on a thread, using a seam "over the edge". After that, fill the part with the synthepone, tighten the thread and sew the hole. Next, sew the head of the horse to the calf. After that, from the remains, cut out the details of the front ears, paws and tail. Fold all the pieces face to face and stitch together, using the seam "back needle". All the details must be turned to the front side, filled with sintepon and sewed. But keep in mind that at the tip of the tail you need to enclose a thread about 7 cm in length. Separately, you should also work with drying, preliminarily folding them slightly at the base and securing with a stitch. Mark the location of all the details on the horse,paying special attention to symmetrical parts. All the details need to be sewn. Take care of the design of the face. Sew the buttons in the places of the nostrils and the peephole. Mark the mouth by making a few stitches with red or pink threads. It remains to make something without which it is impossibleno horse is a mane. To create it, draw 8 spokes on the spokes and tie a strip (about 20 cm) with garter stitch. Do not close the hinges, just remove the product from the knitting needle, iron it through a wet gauze and dissolve everything that is tied. You will get "curly" yarn. Fold it down so that the mane is fit and sew to the head of the horse. When doing this work, slightly lift and fluff the threads to make the mane more lush. Horse from a sock on a stick Your kid will be delighted with a horse on a stick, which you can make yourself using a sock and bells. To make such a toy, you will need a fairly impressive list of materials and tools. Prepare a large sock, large (light) and small (dark) buttons for peephole making, strong enough threads of dark and light shade, plain and thick needles, thick mane yarn and fine embroidery threads, ropes, belt, ear cloth, metal rings, bells, sintepon for filling toys, as well as a wooden stick (an old mop is suitable). First, cut off the mop you need from the moplength and make a groove about 30 cm from its beginning. Take a sock, tightly fill it with sintepon. Temporarily pull it with a rope or a hair band near the base. Proceed to making manes. To do this, choose a thick yarn of suitable color. It should be wrapped around a not very small object (the ideal option is a book). When a sufficiently large number of circles are wound, cut them from one side. You will get many pieces of yarn of the same size. The principle of making manes is the same as hair for a doll. Consistently sew or tie pieces of yarn to the head of the horse, starting from the heel and moving down to the elastic band. So you need to pass at least 15 cm. Start sewing a horse eye. Take a strong thread, perform a knot on it. Using a large needle, pierce the product through one side of the eye. The needle must exit from the other symmetrical side, where the second eye will be located. Now, using a needle at the second point, sew a bigger, lighter button, you need to sew on it a second one - a smaller button. Pierce the head in the opposite direction, heading to the side where the bundle is. There you need to sew the second eye of the two buttons like the first. Using strong threads, make your horsesmile. To do this, again use strong threads, tying a knot, pierce the muzzle with a needle at the point where there will be one corner of the mouth, and pull it out in another corner of the smile. Return to the initial nodule and do similar procedures several more times, tightening the thread tight enough to form a crease in the mouth area. To get a smile, the thread needs to be lowered slightly lower. For the ears cut two quarters of a circle of differentcolors. With dimensions, determine yourself, starting from the total size of the horse. In this example, the parts were cut from circles 18 and 14 cm in diameter. Fold them in two pieces, gather at the base and sew to the head. Now take the metal rings and put onon them on the bells. So that you can make a good harness, take a leather strap or a strip of leatherette and pull it between these rings. It must pass under the mane, from above and below the muzzle. Make measurements to cut off the strips of the desiredlength. Each of the ends pass through the ring a few centimeters and sew. The rope you have prepared for the bridle, tie to the rings. The head of the horse was left to put on a stick, and it must rest on the heel of the toe. If there is not enough filler, then add more. Wrap the sock around the stick, using a strong thread, try to get it into the groove. From above wind the decorative thick rope as illustrated in the photo.

Now you need to make the same bunch as on the first photo and wrap the chest of the horse. It needs to be bandaged, and in the remaining bundle put a wire bent twice. Make the body of the horse by completing another dressing. In the same way, prepare the hind legs and trim the excess so that everything is level.
