Sewing for Pets

Over at Patternreview, there's a contest for the first two weeks in September , Sewing for Pets http://sewing.patternreview.com/SewingDiscussions/topic/53390

These are my entries. A couple of dog beds, plus coats for Mollie, Sanka and Alby. The hardest part of the task was getting the photos for the review!!

The pattern for the coats came from this book by Wendy Bealing.

All the patterns in the book are in graph form and it's simply a case of enlarging the graph.

The dog beds were just merely an oversize pillowslip. No pattern, no measurements just the size of the furnishing remnant.

A real bonus here as all the materials from these projects came from the stash - fabric, fur insert, binding, buttons, the lot! Can't beat that.
