Custom Horsewear

Awhile ago I was making and selling custom blankets, polo wraps, etc., but I stopped because I wasn't turning out very much profit and blankets are very time-consuming to make. I think it was because I was trying to keep my prices as low as possible so that more people would buy. I'd like to re-start my little "business" to get some extra money coming in (saving up to put a down-payment on a house), so I wanted to see what people would be willing to pay for custom-made horsewear. My blankets are all made with criss-cross belly surcingles, leg straps, leg gussets, fleece at the withers, adjustable open-front closure with clips AND buckles and no back seam. I can make

Fleece sheets
Cotton sheets
Wool sheets
Rain sheets
Blankets (all weights, all sizes, can add/remove features as requested, choice of fleece lined/nylon lined/fleece lined with nylon lining over shoulders, waterproof turnouts or stable blankets)
Neck rugs
Polo wraps
English saddle pads
Working on a pattern for quarter sheets

I can pretty much do any colors/patterns. Everything is completely custom. What would you be willing to pay? Would you even be interested in any of these items?

I'm curious as to what a 82" 250 gram winter turnout blanket would end up costing me..? With neck?
Also a jumping pad in hunter green with white or cream trim..
Do you have photos of your work?
Thanks!

I may be interested in a cotton sheet for traveling or cool nights at shows. Or as a blanket liner. I'd love to see some that you've made. Pictures would be great!
