PostSubject: My home-made tack for my horsies   Fri May 06, 2011 8:54 pm

I hope I'm posting this topic in the right area, I couldn't think of any other area to put it! Anyway, I've got into making accessories (mostly rugs as you can see from the pics) to my Schleich horses. I never regarded myself as being mind-blowingly good with my hands but well, it's great fun doing these Very Happy And it would get REALLY expensive to buy many Schleich rugs...

I'd like you to comment these, for example, which one do you like the most?

This is probably the first rug I made, for Samson. It's a very simple one, red fleece Very Happy

Black Pearl's pink rug, I didn't like this at all as it turned out quite messy, so I don't even have this one any more...

This one I finished very recently, today actually Very Happy I have to say I'm quite pleased with this. Dark blue suits Eldorado very well, doesn't it?

I took another picture from above so you can see the leather detail on the back.

I like Samson`s rug, even if it was the first one. It looks nice and warm .
Eladorado`s rug is the most detailed, you are getting better and better, keep up the good work cheers

Really nice rugs :)

I should make some for my Schleich. All of my Equorums have a rug each and they nearly all have halters.
However, I think I'll need a lot more material for all my Schleich, Papo, Collecta, Bullyland, Safari and other horses Shocked

Very nice rugs :) I particularly like Samson's, it looks warm and cosy and it really suits him. Eldorado's is nice too, it's a lot more detailed than the other ones and it looks like you spent a lot of of time on it. I also like the buckles on it very much! What are they? I keep trying to find suitable buckles for my schleich rugs, but haven't yet found anything satisfying.

Thank you for your comments everyone :)
The buckles and the little rings that I used for Eldorado's rug are actually meant for making jewellery. I found them in a shop that sells all kinds of crafts-related stuff.

They are all wonderful. I can't choose which is my favorite. Each one has certain things I like about it. Great job.
