Seasons Greetings Linnea
I know that this is a little late but I know that you will have had the sort of Christmas and New Year as we have had. However, we are in a new year so let us hope that this is a better one for both of us.
Do you remember me sending off for the pattern and then sending you the pictures of our Shetland Foals, well I have finally got the coats finished and am very pleased with the results, I think this is down more to your pattern and good instructions than to my sewing skills, but I thought you would like to see the results so I have attached photographs for you, should you wish to use them please feel free to do so.
Firstly is Prince Charming the chestnut colt, then I am holding Princess Sharamanda, she was light grey but has changed colour to dark grey in her winter coat, she will change back again in the Spring, just as her father did, and lastly is Briany Mai with myself. She really is a 'cutie' and such a character.
Well thank you again I have bookmarked your site because there are a couple of more patterns that I will be ordering when I get round to it. I will certainly recommend your site to all our 'horsey' friends. By the way, the first coat I made for Tinybaby turned out to fit a English Springer Spaniel belonging to a friend of ours, so it didn't go to waste.
All the best for the coming year

Hi there,


I've bought patterns for chaps in the past and changed the pattern so I could wear them on the motorcycle.

I love you and your patterns are easy to follow and so nice when completed.

This time I purchased pattern 7606 that features small horses and a dog blanket. I actually used the appropriate size on the dog pattern and changed it a bit to fit my daughters FFA show goats in her school colors. They were such a hit and my daughter is so proud of them. I'm sure I'll make more in the near future that way the goats won't get cold when I'm washing them.

I used maroon duck canvas cloth and black double fold blanket binding. Webbing is 1" wide with the plastic clips. It was so easy to make. The next will have flannel or fleece for more warmth as we may get to freezing here in Wylie, Texas this winter.

Please see the attached pic. Enjoy! Brutus loves his coat. Y'all are a lifesaver and easy on my budget. Pattern $8, Two coats completed for less than $20 in materials. The commercially made goat coats are $30 each. Suitability is priceless.

Thanks for what you do.

Hi, Linnea:

Just had to make a 27" bridle bag (pattern #7400) out of some leftover supplies from a different project. Used heavy weight duck cloth, 26" nylon zipper, and 1" nylon binding. Added embroidery to the binding for some pizazz! Extended the 10" handles inside by the required measurement for the hangers using hook/loop to secure a bridle, halter, or whatever gets hung on them.

I’ve made your boot bag pattern this way twice now and thought you’d like to try it MY way (lol). Doing it and writing it are two different things, however, so if you have any questions, let me know and I’ll try to think it out again…

Double boot carrier with separator



Photo shows one zipper open, one closed, with a separator between the boot pockets.

Cutting:

2 boot outsides, making sure you cut one right outside and one left outside
4 boot linings
3 boot interfacings, if needed
2 long outside strips
2 long lining strips
4 zipper strip outside fabrics
4 zipper strip linings
2 zippers
One 12” length of woven 1” belting

Sewing:

Zig-zag or serge two of the boot linings wrong sides together sandwiching one of the interfacings between them. Set this center piece aside.
If you don’t mind seeing the seams inside the boot covers, zig-zag or serge all inside/lining pieces together, sandwiching the other two interfacings between the boot outside and lining pieces. Install zippers between the two short pieces. Stitch the zippered short pieces to the ends of the long strips and then stitch the resulting circles to the outside boot pieces.
If you want the covers completely lined and the seams enclosed, install the zippers between the short narrow strips and stitch the longer strips to the ends, completing the circles. Baste the interfacings to the outside boot pieces.

Stitch the outside boot pieces to the zipper strip, with the zipper centered on the length of the front of the boot. Stitch the lining pieces together, leaving the zipper opening open for hand or machine-tacking later. Put the linings inside the appropriate boot outsides, matching and pinning all corners and seams. Baste edges together. Top stitch zipper lining pieces to outer zipper placements by hand or machine.

Turn one of the boot halves right side out; leave the other one inside out. Partly unzip the inside out piece zipper (you’ll be glad you did later !).
Put the right side out assembly inside the inside out assembly matching all “corners”. Layer the stitched together lining pieces to the outside boot pieces, sandwiching the right side out boot assembly in the middle matching all corners.

Fold the 12” belting together matching raw ends and push between the two outside fabrics at the center of the boot tops, matching raw edges. Stitch through all layers completely around the assembled boot shape. Reinforce stitching at the handle site.
Unzip the (smile!) partially opened zipper the rest of the way and turn the inside out assembly so the outside fabric shows. The “handle” should appear in the center of the top.
