Recently I made a few more patterns for custom fabric, and thought it would be possible to shrink them down for bell boots. I’m really happy that it worked!
The boots have been in pieces all week, and I literally had to force myself to sit down and finish them today. I’ve been so distracted with other things and ideas and…
Anyway, here they all are:
Pink Leopard and Leopard:
Zebra and tie-dye:
Green and pink camo:
Rainbow stars and blue/white stars:
I’ve been wanting to make a flame pattern for a while now so I’m happy this one worked ok. I’m definitely planning on getting the new patterns printed for saddle pads, because I have a thing for matchy-matchy sets on horses. XD
These particular boots are not for sale as they were tests, but I’m happy with them so I’ll be making more in the future.

I love the flames! And the matchy-matchy makes me happy, as well. 😊
Your pads are very beautiful!)
Just want to know, but do you have fabric for a horse shoe pattern. By the way, what horses did you use as models.
No, but I’d like to make one. 🙂 The models I used are Breyer’s Roxy and Cedric (on the Show Jumping Warmblood mold)
I love them! ☺ I recently attempted to make my own English saddle but it was a failed attempt lol.😛 I was wondering what you use to stick it together? Glue?
I’ve used a mix of glue, sewing and straight pins. 🙂
Ok thanks so much! I used hot glue. Big mistake there! It oozed out 😜
Yay that is so cool! I love the match thing as well, it makes me happy. 😊
Nichelle, I have to know, what theme do you use (I know we use the same web editor, I can tell)?
I *think* it’s the “Misty Look” theme, but it’s old and possibly not available anymore. I remember there being an updated version a few years back, but I never switched.
Do you know what the updated one was called?
No, I don’t, sorry!
I had a question, for custom horses do you recommend oil paint or acrylic paint?
I have very little experience with painting so I’m afraid I don’t know what to recommend! A lot of people start out with acrylics as they have a faster drying time than oils, but I think it comes down to personal preference and experimenting with different mediums. 🙂
Thank you! I will have to try both sometime and see for myself😉
Love the Pink Camo!
These are so cute! I’m determined to make some navy blue ones with dots. I think that would look awesome! ❤
where did you get those little horse symbols?
I made them in Photoshop 🙂
Would you ever make a tutorial on these i would love to make them. Not to sale or anything just for my personal use and enjoyment. 😊
No promises on a tutorial, but I’ll keep it in mind! Feel free to reach out if you have any questions though 🙂
I love this!!! so cute!! what do you use for the bottom of the western saddle pads?
A plush fabric that I trim down 🙂
