Hanging Animal Art Doll - Horse
I have started making these animal art dolls as gifts; they feature the heads of animals, and in this case a tail also, as well as long limbs and tiny pink eyes that are safety eyes. There is also a printed animal tag to accompany the doll. The pattern was simple enough to put together, the arms and legs are basic long shapes and the body ends in a nice flat bottom.
These animal art dolls are decorative only, totally hand-sewn, I have included a loop at the back of the head so it could be easily hung if desired, however it could also stand or sit on a shelf or in a cabinet. To create this pattern I used a number of different sources with only the heads of each doll being altered to create differing animals. Again I have to apologise for the quality of the photos.
