Gibson over at Corgi Butts shows his team spirit by sporting a colts collar. I was on my shopping excursion to pick up material to make my dog collar flower and bows. I was looking in the clearance bin of scrap pieces of fabric when I came across the FL dolphins. It didn't have a price on in and it was a tiny scrap, so I took it up front to see how big it was. It was a long semi-skinny piece. I asked the cashier how much it would come out to... $2.99. OK SOLD! If it didn't work out it wasn't big splurge of money. I got home and immediately too one of her other coats to use as a guide line. Once I took the dolphin material and cut it into 2 semi-skinny pieces and sewed them together. It was the perfect amount! I found some old white corduroy material and used that as the backing. I finished her little coat just in time - "daddy" (my boyfriend) and "grandpa" (my dad) came in to see her sporting the FL team spirit. My dad hates it when I dress up the dog, but this time he thought it was cool. (of course right?). I was quite proud of myself for what I did. It looks professional.
Now I am not a huge football fan- I could care less about football but for $2.99 I couldn't pass it up. My boyfriend works at the arena when the Panthers play hockey so he's going to see if he can get me a Panther's fleece blanket to make her a Panther's coat. Because we both are HUGE hockey fans! Marlins will be next. :-)
I plan on putting orange ruffles on it around with butt so she will be noticed as a GIRL.
PS. Also the etsy shop wil be going soon. Im still in the midst of getting enough things done, and prices figured out. Keep you all posted.
