For both of you, it will be about $30 once I add the Fleece/Fur/Faux Sheepskin Material, as the fabric per yard is expensive.

Also, I found you a batman patch, but I will have to order it online. Good thing is that it is free shipping. Bad thing is they are $5 each. Your call if you want to pay $10 extra or not :]

Well, I might just get the AP pad, not the 1/2.
How about this logo?

It says you can contact her for a bigger size.
And here is a bunch on ebay:
batman items - Get great deals on Fabric Transfers, Patches items on eBay.com!

So the AP pad would be how much without the logo?
I wish you had examples so I could get an idea of the fabric and such... is it like a quilted or smooth fabric? Lol

I buy the fabric as requested. And I usually start with plain, smooth, cotton (or a blend) fabric, and I then quilt the saddle pad. Sometimes I can find the fabric pre-quilted, but more times not.

I can do stitching/quilting like these:

Im working on perfecting my stitches like this to where I can do swirls and what-not:
http://s7d5.scene7.com/is/image/EquestrianCollections/PT00131?$oldimage$

Im decent at it enough, but I have to work slow when I come to the designs so that I dont make a mistake (thought its not that big of a deal if I do, I can always start over, but it's a pain). I just want to perfect it before I offer more intricate designs.

For the standard square/diamond stitch, you can tell me how big you would like the squares (1" by 1" or half that, more, etc). I trace the design onto the pad fabric before I start stitching so that I know exactly where I need to sew each time.

OH, and for the batman patch, they are cheaper, but the disadvantage is that they are from Hong Kong and Thailand, and wouldnt arrive until a few weeks later. To be honest, it would be your call. The more expensive ones would come within the next day or so, since they are from the US, or the others which cost a lot less, but take weeks to arrive. It would be all up to what you would like to choose.


How thick would you want your AP pad to be? The Filler is what makes the difference in cost. What I have posted as costs on the OP is just a general cost.

As for photos, I used to have some, but I recently got a new laptop, and lost them all! It sucks!

Those would come fast, and it -may- work, but I would be a little worried about when you wash them. I have done iron-on "stickers" for shirts before and they always peel when you wash them.

To be honest, I -personally- would feel more comfortable with a patch, since I know for a fact it will work, and wont mess up the saddle pad that -you- are paying for.

Could you make a bright purple AP pad with electric blue piping? I wouldn't want the pad super thick seeing as I would be using it for trail rides.

I'm looking for a bright purple bordering almost lavender but not quite. Every pad in purple that I find is always a deep purple or a plum purple and I don't really like those colors.
