Choosing Materials

Wow! The response and outpouring of people who wish to create a stuffed CalicoHorse for people in need has been tremendous! As stated in my last blog, the materials have been carefully selected to assure they are accepted into the various organizations who will be receiving our huggable herd. They will be delivered to foster children and adults in care centers who are in desperate need of a hug.

This is a massive humanitarian project and I do not have any assistants. Please DO NOT email me with questions, please post them in the comment section of the blogs. This will help others as well.

The crafting does not begin until January, however it’s time to start gathering your materials.


The downloadable pattern is currently being tested and will be available in December, however I wanted to share the supply list with you.

*Important – be sure to read this paragraph included with the supply list:
Calico Horses Pattern by Lorraine Turner

This simple pattern was designed to be safe for everyone over the age of three. The supply list has been carefully created to meet safety guidelines so the stuffed animals will be accepted by the foster homes and care centers. No alterations of the pattern or additional embellishments (such as buttons and glues) are allowed.

The materials listed MUST be adhered to or your Calico Horse could be rejected by the homes and care centers. If you are delivering stuffed animals to local facilities, please check to see if those facilities have additional safety requirements.

YOU will also need to double check your work to assure you have followed directions. Lorraine Turner is not responsible for faulty craftsmanship.


Please ask your club, organizations, guilds, family and friends to join our team and TOGETHER we shall gallop across the world spreading comfort to ALL in need.

Please join the team of volunteers today!
