Hmmm... Cant help on how to SEW bandages sorry.. I just usually use the ones with the velcro on the end and wrap some electrical tape around them when done to hold them on. Probably a little quicker but not as neat as the sewing.
sorry i cant help you!

Could i steer you away from bandages? Yes they may look pretty, but i don't personally like them. Sewing them takes SO much time. There is an alternive, to get just the velcrow ones (with big tabs) not Bandages but boots. Far away they look like bandages (and you save 1h sewing them up)
Cheers,
Hope I helped!

That sounds like a good idea! Are those different from polo wraps?

yeah my sister has those boots
some of them are more expensive but you can get cheap ones for under $100
they're also good because pressure is distrubuted more evenly so they don't cut off the circulation, which can be a problem if you are new to bandaging

I personally wouldnt be using bandages at all for eventing, they hold too much water, which makes them really heavy after a water jump and they dont offer any where near as much protection as some of the boots that are now available. Also if you dont bandage properly, it can cause massive tendon injuries.
Hope this helps!
Cheers
