    OK... so my Grandma is here... and for the past couple of days, we've been going sew crazy. We just finished a blue jean bag... that I'll use for my grooming gear. My next project is a sledding harness for my dog.

    But then after that, I'd like to make these things (either with my Grandma, or without):

    Saddle pad (I'd use sponge foam for batting, or wait until volunteers come with it)
    Set of Polos
    Bridle Bag (if I buy a bridle in Budapest... I'll need a bag... ;) )
    Saddle Bag (the kind I can use on trail rides, not the storage bag)

    So... I have jersey material that I'm going to use for the saddle pad (need to find the harder cotton material).

    What kind of material would I need for the other things? I honestly have no idea...

    Thats a good question!!! I have been wondering the same, since I LOVE sewing and spend many winter hours making stuff I never use. I am going to keep and eye on this, and if I figure any numbers out I will send them here!!!

    I'm always REALLY bored. Of course... the one week with nice weather is the week I can't leave to go to the stables because my Grandparents are here... ;)

    So yeah... I'd really like some stuff to make... Just WAY bored. :D

    I know that feeling. It is actually above 0 today, so ALL I want to do is go to the barn, but there are snow drifts on the road that prevent me from getting there....
    (Yes I tried, and spent an hour shoveling my car out before a truck came to rescue me) *sigh*

    I'm not needing any patterns... more of just information on actual materials... and lengths of different things.

    well then I guess this won't help much
    http://myhorseforum.com/threads/91291/

    For the pad I would use a good cotton
    Polos, I would use fleece,
    Bridal/Saddle bags I would use the sturdiest thing you can find. Canvas is good, maybe a heavy nylon of you are looking for something waterproof.

    I can't help with measurements LOL

    I would use fleece for the polos. Thats what I use, and most of my polos that I've bought are made of that material.

    Not to mention, you can get some pretty cute patterns on them too.

    I almost bought a pair that were pink and had little rubber duckies on them :p
