For a special sewing adventure: re-working the openings on hay bags.
Nothing glamorous here - just some sewing to help out the barn. By making the openings smaller, less hay is wasted and it slows down their eating a bit, which is better for the horses.
I got four of them done while I was there. Some of the bags need more intensive care to make them useful again. These had to come home to be reconstructed.
Nothing like reweaving fabric out of thread & air!
There are commercially made hay bags like these with small & smaller openings. They are about $30-40 each brand new. With webbing costing $1.25/yard, a little time and some utility sewing, we can redesign the hay bags the barn already owns.
It's a win for everyone... except maybe the hay hog horses.
They'll get over it.
Have sewing machine, will travel.
