Jasper’s Turnout

Continuing with the “blanket all the horses!” mood I’ve been in, here’s the most recent one, made to fit my Copperfox ISH:

This was inspired by a full-size horse blanket (by John Whitaker, I believe) and I knew that I needed to make it for one of my CF horses.

It was also another gusset experiment, on a thicker blanket this time. The gussets themselves were made from an image of the Union Jack that I edited, resized and had printed on fabric for miniature work. I should have made it a bit narrower but I still think it looks ok.

I also decided to add tongue buckles to the front straps, which makes taking it on and off a bit more fiddly but hey, it’s the little details, right?

I’m really happy with how it turned out!

Here’s another in-between-orders project I wrapped up today:

This one was specifically made for my Namid model on the Forever Saige mold. (aka “Stardust”)

It was also a test to see if I could make the gussets again.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but sometimes I’ll look back on something I’ve made and wonder how the heck I made it. o_O I guess I need to start taking notes or something WHO KNOWS.

But I did manage to re-create the gussets like last time, so I’m happy about that.

It suits her, I think!

New Turnout

I’ve been poking at this blanket in-between orders, and finally got it finished up today. It was inspired by a real turnout rug, but with some minor details changed.

I haven’t done much with two-toned blankets, so this was another test of that. (My Andalusian mare, aka “Nenya” has claimed it, so it’s not for sale)

The shape of it, especially around the front legs, was a challenge to add binding to.

And I don’t think I’ve made a blanket (minus one for a foal) that’s curved instead of square in the front.

I’ve been so inspired by the photos I’ve been seeing on Instagram lately, so I took her outside for a quick photo shoot.

The snow’s melting! The sun was out all day! It warmed up to 40°! Could this mean that spring is maybe, possibly, on it’s way??

I hope so!
