Making own horse blankets...

Has anyone here ever made their own horse blankets? I was thinking about making a simple cooler for my mare but don't have a lot of experience in sewing. If anyone ever has, how difficult did you find it to be. Also is it worth the hastle or should I just buy one?

You could buy a simply cooler for as low as 20.00 dollars that's probly how much you would spend on materials if you made one. But you don't need to do 2 much sewing on a cooler.

May I ask where you found one for $20? I know I've seen them but I can't find anything below around $40..

It was like my idea with making my own polo wraps. When I made my own, they turned out gorgeous and I really enjoyed them but they were soooo much work and by the time all was said and done I ended up spending the same amount of money making them as it took to buy them. All this without mentioning the amount of work it took to make them.
Not worth it in my books. I wouldn't be surprised if you end up regretting the idea. Its way more work than you realize.

I have a friend who makes rugs for her horse, and another friend who made a hood. The easiest way is to use a rug you already have as a template. The rugs my friends made turned out pretty well.

I bought a home made fleeceliner on ebay for $22.00 including shipping. The only problem was she said it was a 78 in size but it didn't even come close to fitting my boy. I think it is more a 74. If you want it I will sell it for $22.00 that includes shipping. If that is the size you need. Lol
It is really pretty and is closed in the front with leg straps that are sewn to one side and has a velcro loops to attach to the other side. It looks really easy to do but I would just got one from my mom so I don't need this one.

Would buying a cooler and personaliznig by adding a few cute little things on it to make it your own, be an option? You could easily add on your own little touch and still make it special to you

My mom has made blankets before... but she perfers that I buy them. By the time you buy the fabric, webbing, buckles, and get a pattern layed out you could just buy a blanket. I like looking at nicely used or sale items. The winter blankets are also harder to sew. The webbing and fabric and make it pretty thinck and if you arent handy with a sewing machine you need to have spare needles.

It isnt impossible, just can end up being more of a headache then you bargined for.
