I had a fairly big chunk of horse hair (from the last time my horse got his hair did), sitting in a drawer, and I'd been planning on doing something with it for ages.

I pulled a jacket outta the closet (really nice pendleton one that fits me well, but booooooring).


Made the hair into fringe by sandwiching it between- shoot, I don't remember. Bias tape or hem tape or something like that from my crafty stash drawer.

Then I drew a little rope design, programed it, and sewed it...

Fit it to the jacket

Same thing for the front-

Added piping from the stash

Cut some platinum leather fringe for under the hair, because it really wasn't popping... guess I didn't take pics of that, but you can see it attached here.

added piping to the front too

And finished it all up. Sorry the modeling pics aren't the best- took 'em with my computer.

What an amazing use for horse hair! The jacket looks really cool too.

WANT WANT WANT and I live in Hawaii where there is no use for jackets!

Omg..I love the rope design and I seriously want to steal your machine. The jacket is so much better with the additions and now you'll always have your horse with you when you where it!

I wonder if you wore it around him if he'd sniff it and be confused.

What a great jacket! Another reason why I love Craftster: a person with a drawer of horse hair.
