Do you make any famous horses or horses from movies?

Few years ago I made the horse from the Brave for a little girl. Usually I just do whatever comes to my mind :)
tfyuhjnbgf9 karma2017-03-25 08:11:11 UTC
How did you get started doing this?
tsundereuke15 karma2017-03-25 08:18:15 UTC
I heard about this from a friend when I was 9. This is a really common hobby in Finland and there is tons of people who ride and make these. :)

Can you make me a horse that looks like this?
tsundereuke11 karma2017-03-25 09:05:26 UTC
It would be pretty hard to make a horse that looks like that 😂

There are tons of people? In Finland? Riding hobbyhorses? Like, to work?
tsundereuke2 karma2017-03-25 14:32:12 UTC
Nah, some little kids and teenagers (mostly girls) ride them in their free-time :) But it's kind of a 'cheesy' hobby so some people keep it a secret to avoid bullying.
tfyuhjnbgf2 karma2017-03-25 09:00:44 UTC
What are they called in Finnish?

Do you use hand pressed wool felt or synthetic felts? How long does each horse take from design to completion?
tsundereuke9 karma2017-03-25 07:59:39 UTC
I use fleece and fur fabrics. It takes 2-3 days to make one horse. :)

How much do you earn in a year?
tsundereuke13 karma2017-03-25 07:51:44 UTC
It depends on how many horses I make. I get around 30€ -45€(+ shipping fee)/per horse. But I think around 200-300€/year. :)
EuropoBob4 karma2017-03-25 08:19:42 UTC
How long does it take to make one of these (on average)?
tsundereuke7 karma2017-03-25 08:20:55 UTC
1-3 days, I'm pretty slow because I sew by hand :)
Arterrie3 karma2017-03-25 09:30:53 UTC
What is the hobbyhorse sport like? :) Also hi, fellow Finn!
tsundereuke3 karma2017-03-25 10:04:44 UTC
It's kind of hard to explain 😂
skookumasfrig2 karma2017-03-25 14:11:50 UTC
Do you ever ride them when no one is looking? :)
tsundereuke4 karma2017-03-25 14:21:02 UTC
Sometimes I ride with my little sisters (8 &6) :)
UniqueMumbles2 karma2017-03-25 14:04:27 UTC
Very nice! What materials do you use? Do you make all of the pieces yourself or do you source parts from a hobby store?
tsundereuke2 karma2017-03-25 14:14:16 UTC
I use fleece and fur fabrics and I make all of the pieces myself :)
UniqueMumbles1 karma2017-03-25 14:43:48 UTC
You clearly take a lot of justifiable pride in your work and should be proud. Do you sell them locally or online?
tsundereuke1 karma2017-03-25 14:45:09 UTC
I sell them in Instagram since it's easy to use :)
