Horse stable sheets..?

I want to make my horses stable sheets, but I have no idea how to go about it. Any advice?

Thanks in advance.

Make them, as in sew them yourself?

You can try SuitAbility, as they have patterns for blankets and such.

I believe by the time you actually purchase all the material and notions you require, it would have just been better to buy the sheet...but I have never sewn a blanket myself.

Ah, but then you wouldn't have the joy of poking needles through fabric into your thumb, frustration at sewing it inside out or breaking a sewing machine :)

Subbing because I'd be interested for sure!

Sewing your own stable sheet is a labor of love. It's way more work for sure, but materials usually end up costing the same as a store bought. A lady here will sew up a custom one, & she says it's a pain to do so she charges dearly. If you want to do this for a craft, look online for patterns. Suitability is one I know of, but I am sure there are free patterns out there somewhere in cyberspace.

Also if you can get a hold of an industrial sewing machine for this project, your life will be WAY easier! Haha

I want it to be my own colors, and pattern. That is the whole reason behind it.

I agree with Suitability!

It's where I get my patterns for my show shirts/chaps. Their patterns are really straightforward and simple to follow, as well as fabric suggestions.

Hi - suitability has patterns, but it really doesn't save you any money by the time it's done, also it has to be an industrial machine with heavy duty needles because your basic machine will not be able to sew through the thick fabric and padding.

Good Luck!

I always thought they advertised as all patterns being able to be sewn on an everyday sewing machine?
