Sadly, we left them under the kitchen table!!! So the dogs did not get to open them on Christmas day, but here are the models modelling them before wrapping.
Pigeon the whippet looking less than impressed in his new coat. Perhaps he did not approve of the 'now you see me' colour scheme.
But not so much that he could not investigate the contents of a bowl of food!
Actually looking quite handsome!
But then, oh the indignity of it all, he had to try on the Yorkie X coat. Bit small for him and pink lining (she's a bitch!)
Inspecting my handiwork - think he approved!
And finally my boy trying on the coat I made for Bob the Staffie.
Red with a red lining and lots of girth! Bob is a proper chunky staff.
They don't really do this modelling lark do they? I think it might have been nearly tea time.
If I can get some photos of the actual recipients in their coats (Bob and Lola) I will share those.
I finished the edging in black bias binding, and the coats have a quilt middle to keep them all warm.
The nylon should be shower proof but should also help protect them from wind. The three dogs they were made for all have very thin fur. The poor whippet and staff have nothing and Lola is a yorkie cross and has 'hair' rather than fur. They all feel the cold.
