Arts and Crafts

The two days that I have had off I've been looking at blogs and getting ideas. I wanted to get/make Whiskey a coat for when its cool outside, but in stores I can never find one that I like the print (that its not too girly looking) or the right size for her. I found a few online, but one seemed quiet simple to make. Me and my mad sewing skills. I decided to break out the sewing machine and try my own. This was just a prototype, and it just needs a few minor adjustments. but overall for my first try its not too bad.
Making this puppy coat was not as easy as it seems, especially when you have 3 kitty furry friends helping you and a puppy wandering all over the house.

"What mom, am I in the way?"

"OK, I'll just roll over."

The two pieces face-to-face (as pillow fashion) sew 3/4 of it and leave one side open to flip inside out. When I flipped it inside out i added the quilting batting.

Nice and poofy with the batting inside and i just sewed an "X" down the back so it didn't look so "pillow-like".

Whiskey wearing her new coat, she must be embarrassed, cause I had to coax her out of her kennel to put it one, and then after the picture was done she went back in.

  1. Whiskey's a brat. You can see in her eyes that she knows she's not helping... haha
