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!

The Littlest Blanket

I really wanted to make Cadell a plaid blanket like his Momma’s, but settled on (more) dinosaurs because why not.

They look like jammies. I’m ok with them looking like jammies. I think it’s cute on the big horses but on the tiniest pony foal?! Squeeeeee!

I couldn’t resist getting the tiny dinos out…

Square Cooler

I finished up a square cooler today:

I think these are usually made of fleece. Mine is cotton, but it might drape nicer with a different material. (Jersey, maybe?)

Still, for a spur of the moment project it came out better than I thought it would.

It helps that it didn’t need a pattern or hardware or contouring or anything. It’s literally a rectangle with binding and ribbon straps sewn to it. 😅

I’ve been in a creative slump/burnout for several weeks now, so finishing anything is an accomplishment.

These slumps come and go of course, and soon I’m hoping to get back to creating things I promised forever ago. (*cough*likesaddlebags*cough*)

Until then…
