Blanket help!

Lacey ripped her blanket again. >.< But this time she didn't just rip the outer layer, she ripped all three layers: the outside stuff, the fill stuff and the inner lining.
I figured out how she doing it though which I guess is good. There are some low trees in her field that are evidently catching on her blanket and ripping it. >.<

But anyway, how should I fix that? I'm thinking maybe just patch the inner layer with a patch on the inside, sew the fill back together and patch the outer layer with a patch on the inside, then sew it all back together... Does that sound good to you guys? Obviously I'll need to waterproof that area again...

How the fill looks like? Fabric or some kind of puffy stuff? When Jemma's blanket was ripped by other horses (it was way back she was still a baby) we sew inside and sew outside, but I believe there was no fill in between.

It's the white fluffy stuff. =)
I put my plan into action last night because I need to get it back to her today since it's been super cold. It actually worked pretty well. I learned my lesson from last time though (I tried to sew it from the outside and the lighter inside fabric got all caught up so I had to undo ALL the stitching and do it again) so I pinned around the biggest patch then sewed inside the pins, from the inside of the blanket.

I'm going to be amazing at sewing blankets by the spring, I'm thinking. =P

Hey, you can start fixing blankets for fee! :) We have like 2 or 3 people in area doing it, and I know they certainly have customers (it's cheaper to pay $20 then buy new one).

That's a good idea. I'll look into that! It wasn't all that hard either but I can definitely understand why people don't want to try themselves, especially if they don't have sewing skills.

I suppose, if I were to do that, tack stores would probably be a good place to put flyers?

Oh, yes. Tack stores and local horse forums (if you have any, I find A LOT thru my local ones), craiglist is another good free place to post.
