I got another horse blanket sewn up this week:
It’s a show cooler or dress sheet, with fancy looped braids on the sides.
Ok… so the braids aren’t exactly what you see on real blankets… they were such a pain to figure out. What I ended up with I came across by accident, and while it’s ok it’s still not quite what I want it to be.
Also, I don’t know if the strap on the back is supposed to go over or under the tail? I’ve seen pictures of it both ways.
There’s a single strap on the front as well:
It may sound silly, but I’m most pleased about the mitered corners, and how I’ve got a “seamless” join on the binding. Honestly, the binding this time around was the easiest part. Usually it causes the most problems so having everything come together neatly was exciting!
