1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / doggie fairy costume on: July 14, 2008 02:05:59 AM
my sister's puppy needed a costume for her graduation from puppy school and of cause she had to be the best dressed in the class so we made her a fairy costume so we got out the scraps and found some shiny fabric which wouldnt matter if it didnt last the hour long class.

i present ruby the puppy fairy


the tutu part made of tulle there were 4 layers of tulle and they only went across the back


even puppy fairies need a rest


my fav toy ill rip its head off grrr


showing off before leaving


she is a 16 weeks old golden retriever and a terror let me tell you. these photos were so hard to take they havent come back from puppy school yet so i dont know if the dress survived or not.
2  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / doggie coat on: July 14, 2008 01:10:04 AM
first post. here goes.
i made this awhile ago about April and it was my first real sewing (I've made dolls and bags and pillows as a kid but nothing but straight lines). i made my puppy Pippa a doggie coat cause it was starting to get cool at night (i live in Australia) and because i thought she needed spoiling cause we got her from the pound which i would do again and again and again.
i bought some brown cord with pink and purple hearts on it and used some pink polar fleece we had lying around at home. i bound it in hot pink bias and closed it with Velcro to allow for adjustments in size.

it was my first time using an overlocker and i hated it at first i wasn't cutting enough off and then the machine ate it at the top around a corner so now I'm scared of them i think ill stick with zigzag instead

i think pip looks great in it and she gets so many compliments about it. she is now 1 hip doggie.
i have since made her (ahem WIP) a thicker one in case its really cold early in the morning if we need to go walkies (fat chance...but just in case). i used the same materials but a light pink bias but i used a layer of wadding as well to make her toastie.
