When we began our annual Stick Horse Rodeo at the school where I taught, I made stick horses and that was when I picked up my scissors and cut to make my first bucking bull pattern. I was pleased with the results and so were the young cowboys. It was amazing to watch the cowboys come out of our real, small scale chute, on their wild and crazy bucking bulls. Those bulls tried so hard to throw their riders off and some were successful. I have spent my entire life teaching and working with young children. They love to pretend and make believe. Stick animals provide a way for them to enjoy their play. The bucking bull is one of five patterns I have made in my Rodeo/Farm Series of patterns. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Use a sewing machine and glue gun. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished the animal will be about 40 inches long and 12 inches wide.

Recommended with this pattern

  • 1/2 yard of fabric, 2 yards ribbon, yarn, poly fil, dowel stick, paint for the dowel stick, glue sticks

I am a retired teacher, and former day care director. I am a grandmother. I live on a small farm, surrounded by larger farms with hay fields, cows, horses, dogs, cats, deer, wild turkey etc. I keep chickens. Mine are all different colors and breeds. I love them, they are great entertainment. My mother taught me to sew when I was 10. It is a life long pleasure. I have made stick horses for years. First I made them for my young son and the kids of friends. Then I made them to help my class raise money, then my son's class asked for them. Then came the Stick Horse Rodeo and I added the bulls. Along came grand kids and more fundraisers, and more but different animals joined my barnyard.
