A Christmas Coat for Rolo....
Good Morning everyone. Haven't blogged for a while as I seem to be doing lots of things, but achieving nothing... well nothing to show as yet!!!
I have just finished making this coat for Rolo, as his Christmas present, so I hope he doesn't read my blog today , as it will spoil the surprise LOL x
The pattern is from Simplicity 2695. The material I managed to find on ebay, as I have been looking around for a while for some suitable material., but hadn't found any. Quite reasonable on ebay £12 per metre and no p&p.
The photo shows the coat folded in half, with the collar to the right and the strap hanging down at the bottom. I just have to add some velcro to the strap so that it sits neatly underneath his belly (which is quite large......too many mince pies !!) I also have to add the strap across the front by the collar - which i am going to do in elastic so that I can stretch it over his head when I put it on him.
I will photograph him at Christmas wearing it xx
