She sells them online on a craft website, does a booth at the county fair, local festivals & the flea market some weekends.
What about horse related sewing projects? Halter/bridle bags, saddle covers, lycra hoods, plain under pads for western riders; my wonderful gma made me 6 to put under my wool show blankets, nicer than pre-made & always the perfect size for my blankets (no extra that hangs out & shows underneath) Fleece leg/polo wraps. My grandma is a formally trained seamstress & has always made custom show jackets (wish I'd have learned, I can make curtains & straight skirts...that's about it!) but she always made good extra income doing repairs on halters, patching blankets, etc. Though much of that type of stuff required using a heavy duty serger & leather needles.
That's so cool
the felt play food.
I was going to start making browbands, I've played around with my own ones but I've always gone to changing the colours so I would take everything off it and start again, so I know how to do those, but also a lot of people already make them.
I like all the other ideas in that paragraph, I thought about the bridle bags etc, but I never really thought about to much else in that respect, except browband covers (fleece tube that velcro onto your browband to save your browband and keep it good for show day)
I paid good money to have someone sew me a custom saddle pad recently. I bought the fabrics, binding edge and webbing for girth keeper (amounts she said) and she sewed me up a lovely pad.
If you can crochet you can make ear bonnets and pommel pads.
Now there's an idea, I can crochet, so I could make ear bonnets, but I haven't heard of pommel pads, what are they? Unless they're called something different here
