At least it involves sewing

OK, please indulge me and my fascination with the new puppy. He is up from Louisiana and #1 has never felt COLD (like 7 with 30 mph winds) and #2 he has no coat. He has Phyllis Diller hair. I walk at 4 am every morning and it is COLD so I decided to make him a little coat out of the sleeve of my partner, Brian's, sweatshirt. The knit cuff was too tight and long so I trimmed it right at the cuff seam keeping the sweatshirt fabric from stretching. Then I split the sleeve up the long seam. I had some olive green bias tape left from the Magpie quilt so I bound the raw edges


Binding the edges


You can see the cuff seam keeping the fabric from stretching and the arm seam open and bound


He wears a harness so I made a sloppy bound button hole for the ring to pass through


Topstitched





Doesn't he look like a little race horse in that coat?
