my new coat...

Hello Bees...since we have no traveling sweaters here, Momma Lulu had time to make an impromptu dog coat. (I've been wearing Grampa's hand-me-downs, which are a bit snug) Basically, you can just lay the old dog coat on the fabric as a pattern, trace around it...stitch stitch...and since we didn't have velcro in the house, a few big buttons from the button jar came in handy. The results were so encouraging, that...ahem! a certain dog sweater (one that Martha Stewart's french bulldogs wear) might also be finished soon...

happy holidays you all... any photos to share?


  1. A product of your new sewing machine! Is that contrast piping? Or lining around the edges? Truly masterful and an excellent fit. I need you to make me a new wardrobe, Lulu. I feel as chubby as Amelia since the holidays.

  2. Happy New Year!!! wow oh wow was it a beautiful day.

    Cheryl, I would pack in a hurry if you would let me into that craft room of yours. I'm just wondering what you would think of your new wardrobe if we did make one together~~

    ps the coat is reversible, the underside is blue. Amelia likes to wear it with the tan side up, so she looks naked. :)
