I’ve been working on and off on this blanket for the last month.

This weekend I finally managed to finish it.

This one is mostly based off of SmartPak Equine’s “Ultimate” turnout blanket. I was eager to try making the quick-clip closures in front. I’ve seen them on many real turnout blankets, and wanted to re-create them in miniature.

Success! The hooks clip on to the rings in front, making the blanket fairly easy to put on. (I usually buckle up everything then slip the blanket over the horse’s head… it’s a lot easier that way!) Like the real thing, they are also adjustable for a slightly tighter or looser fit.

This blanket has the usual details as well… tongue buckles, shoulder gussets, removable leg straps…

I’m really happy with how it came together.

The blanket is for sale, and the auction can be found here on Model Horse Place.

I’ve gotten two more blankets completed this week. These are based off another full-size blanket I’ve had in my reference files for years, but never got around to making.

The zebra print is my design, again printed through Spoonflower. I’ve had it sitting in my fabric stash forever, so I’m glad to finally put it to use!

Both have all the details I’ve been adding to my blankets lately: tongue buckles, removable leg straps and shoulder gussets.

I’ve listed these as auctions on Model Horse Place. The teal one can be found HERE, and the pink one HERE.

Here’s another donation piece I just finished up, this time for The Jennifer Show, being held in Colorado next month. A dinosaur blanket was specifically requested, and I was happy to create one. I tried to keep it different from the dino blankets I’ve made in the past, and it’s very similar in style to the duck blanket.

The hood is removable:

And I put tongue buckles on it too:
