Real horses need a lot of care. They wear special coats called Blankets and Leg Wraps to protect and warm their delicate legs. This pattern will create realistic looking (and great fitting) horsey apparel for your 20" Adult & 13" Foal (Baby) toy horses made by: American Girl®, Our Generation® and My Life®.
These sew up quickly in lightweight denim, cottons, wool, flannel, or other types of woven fabrics. Equines are also known to love dressing up occasionally in special finery, so lace, jewels, and silk flowers may be added to a young heart’s content.
This PDF sewing pattern includes accessories in 5 sizes to fit 3 major brands of toy horses (American Girl® - Our Generation® & My Life®). The leg wraps are shaped specifically for front and back legs. The blankets feature a strap closure underneath the horse's belly. There are a variety of ways shown to make your creation unique.

Never thought I'd need this pattern, but found a charity request slip for an Our Generation horse for Christmas. And even s horse needs clothes! The pattern was super easy and made a practical garment with finished seams. I used prequilted Christmas-y fabric for a winter blanket, and Daisy cotton for summer. I didn't have time to make the leg warmers. The pattern makers did a good job.
easy to follow pattern, i decided to make the blankets reversible. the pattern was easy to adjust for my what i needed.
Easy to download, instructions very clear and complete pattern for a filly or mare.
