To begin, you will need the following:
- White Felt (will be easier to sew symmetrically than two layers of fleece)
- White Fleece
- Sharp Detail Scissors (I use my fine leather scissors, available in my Etsy store)
- Rotary Cutter (optional)
- White Thread & Needle or Sewing Machine
- Air Erasable Fabric Pen
First off, trace your pattern onto your piece of FELT:
Then place your felt on top of the fleece, with the good side of the fleece against the felt:
Sew the two pieces together completely:
Cut along the outside edge of the stitching, leaving 1/8"
Then cut a small slit down the center, about 1/2" shy of each edge with the rotary cutter (or carefully use scissors):
Then turn the pad inside out, from that slit, and push the seams out and fold flat with felt side out:
Then sew a slight curve into the pad, and trim away the excess:
There you have it! :) Happy tack making!
Just listed, the last "square" batch of embroidered saddle pads, they will be cutback from here on out. CLICK HERE
SADDLE STANDS will hopefully be up on my Etsy store by Wednesday or Thursday, so stay tuned!
