   I've been dying to try my hand at making plastic bag 'yarn' and crocheting with it, so I thought this would be a great opportunity to try it out.
  It's been pretty rainy here the last few days and my dog hates going out in the rain, so I decided to make her a little coat for her back so she doesn't get wet. lol She doesn't like that clean feeling.
   I made 6 basic granny squares, three of each color combo and then trimmed it in yellow. The piece that goes around her chest is braided grocery bag. I decided not to use plastic for the piece that goes on her belly because I didn't think plastic would feel too well rubbing on her little belly, so I cut up a t-shirt that I had ruined with hair dye & hair bleach (the piece I used for the dog coat didn't have any chemicals on it though).....but yeah, I used cotton t-shirt material for the belly strap.
  And without further ado....here is my model, Sara.....






oh, if anyone can't see the images let me know....I can always upload them to a different place.

Thanks ladies!

 Sara's a smooth fox terrier. She's really close to the Jack Russel....I think the smooth fox face is just longer...lol

   aww you have a puppy. I would be cuddling Chewie nonstop. lol I got Sara when she was a year or a little older so I never got to experience puppyhood. She's going to be 16 in a little under a week, I can't believe it.
   In the future I really want to get a puppy. I'm in love with smooth fox terriers & jack russels. I love  the looks of them.

Thank you batgirl!!

It was a real nice treat getting this response and bringing me back to this post. This is Sara.....she was my dog ...heck, before I was in high school....she was my best friend and traveled the country with me when I went to college.
 Sadly, I lost her a few years ago. She was 17. <3 Best damn dog in the world.

Thank you again. Smiley Seeing this made my day.
