DINA THE DALA HORSE (First released June 2022)

NOTE: This is the download includes the Cricut .sgv files for the Dala Hourse pieces AND the Embroidery pattern (to draw with a Cricut Infusible Ink pen.) 


Dina the Dala Horse is the second in the series of my 3D felt animals after Huxley the March Hare (and I have plans for many more!). Inspired by the beautifully decorated traditional wooden Dala horses from Sweden, she stands 10cm tall and can be decorated in a variety of ways.


I keep my Dala on my desk and with her silky tail, tactile feel and sparkly beads she is great company when you are taking a mindful moment. Add a little essential oil or fill her with lavender and she will be the perfect desk buddy. 


This download includes all the instructions you need to create your Dala horse. 


For extra help there are three Instagram Live Make-A-longs saved in my feed... 

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3
