    As far as for cost, take how much you paid for materials, equipment maintenance (for your sewing machine, maybe $5/hr) and labour ($15/hr or whatever you want to pay yourself). Calculate the time per polo, times 4, add all the costs up and then multiply by whatever profit margin you'd like (15%). Boom - a price!
    I would be interested in trying them out! The things that would be of a concern for me is the quality of the polos (fabric, stitching), if they fit my horse and the rhinestones staying on (and in their settings) in the wash.
    I have a clinic coming up (I don't know if you've heard but Robert Dover is coming to Calgary - it should be an excellent clinic! Auditor forms are on the ADA website) and I could test them for you I have contacts at a few high end tack shops in the area (Top Hat n' Tails and HorseLife) and I'm sure that if I like them they would be willing to take up the line and sell them in their stores (if you're interested). This is definitely something that the dressage crowd around here would like! Especially if they can withstand the wear and tear of everyday use!

    They look awesome! I'd definitely buy a set! I think they'd look good with *cough* pink *cough.*

    Oh, matching saddle pads would be kind of cool... any suggestions?

    I would definitely buy a set! I need new polos anyway, so this would be a geat idea. I agree with the fact that they are not tacky, but they're probably very nice looking on horses!

    Allie! Those look great! Yes, $10 over the average polo wrap cost would be very reasonable. Since they ARE hand made. I would pay a pretty penny for a pair of lime green ones!

    I think they are very cute. I wouldn't buy them, but that's because I don't use Polo's except for Stall Wraps, so I wouldn't have use for them.

    But they are very cute none-the-less!

    Very cute! I don't use polo wraps, but they are very cute. And a matching saddle pad would look great with them.

    We could combine my browbands and Bracelettes with your polo's and pads.

    I don't know about other people, but I think that just rhinestones or whatever around the border of a saddle pad (where the piping would go) would be gorgeous! Or a little monogram or shape/etc. in one corner (like the corner closest to the horse's hindquarters). I LOVE the polo wraps! They're gorgeous :).

    Teehee! The gears were a'turning as soon as I saw your post MIE!


    I never use polos ever either... but these are very easy to wrap (they aren't bulky like some wraps you see) and they're kinda cute :P
