Saddle and Bridle Carry Bags, and Saddle Covers Patterns

Saddle and Bridle Carry Bags, and Saddle Covers Patterns

PN 7400SU

FITTING

This pattern will fit almost all western and English saddles, but if you have an extra large saddle or one with very long flaps, it doesn’t hurt to compare the saddle to the pattern piece of the carry bag or cover that you are using. 

MATERIALS

The carry bags should be made from sturdy, stiff, water resistant fabric such as packcloth or nylon Cordura™.  Some outerwear fabrics, canvas, and some upholstery fabrics can also be used.  Consider how your sewing machine will handle all of the layers when purchasing materials and notions.  The quilted saddle carry bag linings can be made from nylon such as high-count taffeta.  Various weights of quilt batting can be used depending upon how much padding you desire.  Please see the “Outdoor Fabrics” listings on our Material and Notion Source Information page for sources for the coil zipper tape.  The edge binding for the carry bags should be at least 1 1/2” wide and can be foldover braid, twill tape, regular seam binding, or you can make your own bias tape from nylon fabric.  Where the pattern instructions refer to tape, use nylon or polypropylene webbing or some other sturdy tape. 

The saddle covers can be made from the same fabrics as the bags or use any sturdy fabric to make a dust cover.  For the English saddle cover binding use foldover braid.  For the center zipper English saddle carry bag and the bridle bag linings use fleece, fake fur, or a plush blanket-type fabric.  Thick fleece or fur can be difficult to work with, so use your judgment.  Use outerwear or heavy duty zippers if at all possible.
