The Duck Blanket (+ it’s for sale!)

An ad for this flysheet kept appearing in my social media feeds. It comes in silver, white, and yellow ducks:

WeatherBeeta ComFiTec Essential Mesh II Combo Neck

It made me laugh. So I created a small duck pattern, had it printed on cotton through Spoonflower, then used it for a model horse sized blanket:

It still makes me laugh.

The blanket is fully lined and closes with tongue buckles in the front. The hood has velcro closures.

I wasn’t going to add the shoulder gussets, but I’m glad I decided to go with them. These were made with a new method I’ve been thinking about for months, just never got around to trying! They look so much nicer than my older ones, and are easier for me to make too. (so now I have no excuse to leave them off, lol)

Without the hood:

Off the horse:

As much as I’d like to keep it, this blanket is listed as an auction on Model Horse Place. If you’re interested in bidding, please check it out here!

  1. Anytime model tack makes a person laugh, that is an extremely good thing! Oh and I had no idea you could print your own mini fabric– !! Now I will always remember little rubber duckies with that —-
