suggestions for personalizing a rain sheet?

I got a really simple rain sheet for my daughter and the horse she leases. I want to somehow personalize it so that it's extra special, but knowing that rain sheets aren't long lasting so I don't want to spend a lot of money on it. Plus, leases are temporary. Since my husband is laid off again, I can't spend a lot of money. Has anyone ever had a patch made? We were talking about this being a good idea, because if the blanket gets ruined, or she uses another horse, we can take the patch off and save it.

Does anyone else have an inexpensive way to personalize the blanket (besides Sharpie)?

hmm...if you have a local sewing shop they can usually monogram (sp.?) or write (sew) whatever you want onto any nylon parts like straps or something....I used to have them sew words onto duffel bags and they usually only charge a couple bucks....

Be careful having anything sewn to the sheet - you might end up with a leaky spot.

Puffy Paint. They sell it at craft shops and even walmart. A little puffy paint and glitter goes a long way!

Cheap little iron on appliques might work too. They carry some at craft stores, and even Walmart. Or there is this site.

I'd love to see the end result. Puffy paint seems like a great idea!

I never got around to doing it. It was a good idea though...maybe during the off season I'll find time...anyone know when the off season is?
