Horse Show Ribbon Pillow


That's what I Googled. I want to gather up the little handful of ribbons Monty and I earned in our time together and have something meaningful done with them. I think I have enough for a pillow but will need to search thoroughly to be sure.

Has anyone reading this had a pillow made from their horse show ribbons? Who crafted it for you? Were you happy with the end result? What was the approximate cost? I'm looking for references, contact information and prices and would really appreciate any help from the horse blog community. I have found a few websites of people who do this but would also like some actual commentary from anyone who had one made.

BTW, the pillow above is an example taken from Show Throw.com.

What a great idea. All I have is directions I bought at the Equine Affair about 10 years ago to make a quilt. I hope you find a good person to make one for you.

Oh, and I have been meaning to ask you for your magic tail tumor mix again. I ran out of my first batch and can't find the e-mail you sent with the ratio on it!

We hosted a show and had a ton of ribbons left over, so we had Show Throw make a blanket out of them. Pretty pricey, but it looks really awesome!
