noseband pattern

Just thought I'd give you lot a look at the latest bridle I'm making

The customer is from Ireland so she requested a shamrock pattern , she sent a pic of what she wanted and wondered if it could be done.

The stalks are stitched at 17 per inch using single needle backstitch with the stitch overlap showing, the ' flower ' is stitched at 16 per inch using double hand saddle stitch. The pattern took 6 hours to draw out, prick and stitch

What do you think

The pics aren't coming up, they're little boxes with red x's. Sounds like a cool bridle though!

Ok thanks - my internet is c**p - have tried to load pics a different way

They show for me.

Lovely work, Nutty.

I'm still thinking about getting you to make me a bridle once I have the money!

Oh, how beautiful! I would be very proud to have some of my horses sporting such unique and intricate nosebands. Wonderful work :)

Very talented (as always).

Just curious, is it possible at all technically to put just one piece of jewelry on leather? For example if you want to put a stone (say just one pearl) in the middle of the flower for the contrast.

Very neat! It would look good in white stitching too, if one wants to be that bold .

Luvs - white stitching would be possible - it would however be a lot more difficult as it would show every little difference in any of the stitches, and stitching in 16/17 stitches to the inch is bad enough already ( believe me I know )

Kitten - putting one pearl/jewel/stone would be no problem at all - the browband below has stones set apart to look different.



One sad fact is that in the world of today there is little room left for what can be achieved - most people either want something quickly ( which is not always possible - as I said it has taken 6 hours just to get the pattern right ) or they want something cheap.

You cannot buy the tools to stitch at 16/17 per inch anymore- I had to get mine specially made, the needles and thread are also slightly bigger which makes it harder. I have seen , and indeed have , some of the work that was made in Victorian times, over 100 years ago , and what is produced today does not compare , other saddlers call me mad for stitching like this , but in times past this type of work was the norm not the exception .

Oh, I see, indeed it's possible. Is it stitched in or it sits on glue?

C'mon, Nutty, not EVERYONE wants stuff right away. It's understandable that such work takes lots of time and efforts.

I am in love with stitching on the browband AND jewels!! How much would on of those cost? Maybe with pink jewels, and cream stitching? If its not super expensive I am definitely going to talk my mom into getting one.
