Amish puzzle balls are a traditional toy. Individual segments are sewn together to create a tactile plush ball that’s easy for babies and young children to grasp.
Here I’ve created a unique twist on this classic toy. This puzzle ball comes apart into three rings that, once assembled, create an adorable unicorn or horse.
Sure to delight children and adults alike, I hope you enjoy sewing this special interactive plush toy.
The finished toy is 11 inches tall.
This is a digital PDF sewing pattern that will be emailed to you immediately after purchase.
To make a puzzle ball you'll need:

black embroidery floss or Perle cotton, 18 inches
fiberfill stuffing, 8.5 ounces

Optional: 8 inch x 8 inch scrap of silver lame or similar shiny fabric (for the unicorn horn)
