My daughter recently acquired some horses for her doll. Two of them had been used outside as decorations and so had holes drilled into them. After we got them cleaned up, she asked, “Now, what do we do about these holes?” She knows Mom is a fixer upper, I guess.
So, I got to work, scouring the internet trying to find an EASY saddle to make for the horses, but I couldn’t find anything. I finally got the idea to use the saddle she had for her other horse to make a pattern and use felt for the pieces. Here are some pictures of the finished product- I think it came out pretty nice
I also added a felt blanket beneath the saddle, because we don’t want the horse to get saddle sores. I made the bridle out of yarn (her other horse has a purple bridle and a purple blanket).
This morning, I decided to draw up and save the pattern in case I need to make more saddles, but thought I would share with anyone out there, as well. I made these for the Target brand, Our Generation horses, but since they are tied on, I’m pretty sure they’d fit any horse roughly that size (i.e., American Girl).
