This is my Mustang Collection Stick Horse, which is the third stick horse design I have created (not counting numerous other stick animal designs). I created this design the beginning of 2015. Released January 2016 in a Pattern & Tutorial.


-Detailed step by step instructions -Photos that accompany each step -Easy to follow instructional layout -Full size pattern pieces for the Horse and Pony sizes (2 sizes!!) -Two options for the eyes, flat and raised styles -Bonus! Eyelash tutorial -Tips for the best results -Options for some steps that can be done in a couple different manners -List of vendors for items such as the safety bolted eyes I use

Prints on standard 8.5" x 11" printer paper. Some pieces need to be joined with tape to create the full size template.

You will need to download the digital file which will be available immediately after purchase and then print what pages you would like.

I am also available via e-mail for any questions you may have along the way...I stand behind my products and will help you through any steps the best I can.
