Dala Horses »
InstructionsTwo colors of good cotton fabric in choice of colors to match your home decor. Don't use cheap fabric...it won't hold up when stuffing it. It has to be a tight weave. I used Kaffe Fasset fabrics from gloriouscolor.com. They are around $9.50 a yard. Do not use cheap loose weaves. Use a floral stick for stuffing and reversing the horse.
