making your own show browbands?
I have a plain black leather browband that came off my bridle when I was given my bling dressage browband, and I want to make something to stick on him for hacking. I know what colours I want - aqua, navy and silver - and I know how to make a sharkstooth browband, but there are a few things I need to know.
1. How do you make the little rosette things? I think they look so much better with them... Is there a pattern somewhere?
2. How much ribbon am I going to need? I'm just going to go with satin, I can pick it up cheap at a local shop (I got 1m of red ribbon for $5, for Latte when he was going through his kicking stage)
3. What's the best way of keeping them looking brand new?
4. What's the best way to keep them together? Hot glue? Something else?
I just can't afford to buy a browband made for me by a professional specifically to my order, and I have the base browband, so I would like to make my own.
