How to Make a Hobby Horse For Kids : How to Sew Yarn Mane for Hobby Horse

Hi I’m Karen for Expert Village. Now when
you have everything all pinned together, it is like a little sandwich with the mane inside
and facing this way. We are going to sew that together. We are going to do something if
you are making the fleecy mane you would do it exactly the same way. You would lay it
down and you can either base it on first or you can pin sandwich like this. Sew it all
at once making sure that a little bit of it is sticking out a little bit beyond the edge
of the horses head. I’m going to start at the nose and we are going to do a quarter
inch seam allowance. Just sew with a regular stitch about two and a half length a straight
stitch. First, sew up and back a few times just to knot it and then continue around.
Now when you come to the mane it going to be rather thick and so you want to be careful
that you don’t break a needle. Go slowly and carefully as it comes up to the thicker parts
it is a little bit harder for your machine. Just go slowly, pull out the pins before you
get to them. Just take it nice and slow in those extra thick spots. Go all the way around,
you may want to check occasionally look in the back to make sure you are catching both
sides of the horses head. In the front and the back, just sometimes your fabric would
shift and since we are doing a small seam allowance, it is possible that it might shift
off and you will not be catching the bottom one. It is also good to put your hand underneath
as you are sewing along; you are feeling that bottom fabric. You can feel rather it is shifting
out or not. Just guide that along slowly
and pulling out your pins. It is especially important to pull out your pins when you are
in thick spots because it is much more likely that a needle can break. When you come down to the bottom, just mash
those edges and you want to back up a little bit just to give it a little reinforcement
and knot it.
