Narelle’s Woooie and Wooonicorn

Woonicorn Unicorn Hobby Horse Pattern (6)
I recommend the Woooie and Wooonicorn patterns by WhimsyWoo. There could be a few extra photos in the instructions, but there’s an excellent community to support you if you have problems.

Who did you sew this for?

My daughter, for her 4th birthday.

What changes did you make?

I knotted the main to make it look fluffier.

What did you like or dislike about the pattern?

It’s a very cute pattern and there are lots of tips and tricks to make sure your creation can handle being played with by rough kids.

The pattern doesn’t include photos of every step, and there were a few times I had to study the photos to work out what to do, particularly for the reins. Thankfully, there’s a very active Facebook group of Woooie enthusiasts, including a number of people who sell gorgeous Woooies. It’s a great place to go for inspiration and help. There’s also a couple of YouTube videos linked in the pattern to help with the trickier parts.

What advice would you give someone starting this project?

I knotted the main to make it look fluffier.
