    Default Anyone make a cooler with their own fabric?

    Would love a wool cooler like the Clothes Horse and Blue Ribbon coolers, but already have a fabric I like...would these kind of companies make a cooler out of fabric sent to them? Anyone try to make one at home?

    Find a talented, local seamstress and show her/him some pictures and give measurements and I'm sure you will get just what you want and a fair price.

    Contact the companies with your question -- each might have its own process for customizing. Most have email contact info on a website. What a fun project - good luck!

    I would think the Clothes Horse would work with you as "Every single order is taken and entered into the computer as a custom order. All details are spelled out according to the customer's specific requests and needs."

    By their statement, each order is handled as special order anyway

    If you can sew at all, then the Suitability web site has patterns for coolers, quarter sheets etc. If you have a cooler that fits now, you could use it for a pattern. I have cut down and resewn an old wool cooler into a quarter sheet before.
