Default Finished a Winter Coat

Well, he's not too thrilled with it in this 90 degree heat, but he loves warm shirt when it's cold. It matches his Snuggle sack.

I like it! He will appreciate it when it gets cold!

I was just thinking about starting my sewing for Angel. I am hoping to get it all done before the cold hits! But I bought a new sewing machine about a year and half ago and I miss my old one terribly! It's broken and may not be able to be fixed. It's a Pfaff 2200! My new one is a Babylock. I just have to get used to it!

I have a couple Pfaffs. My bet is they'll be able to fix it. Do you have a serger, too? Can't wait to see pics of your creations. This afternoon I'm going to work on a raincoat. He really needs that with all the rain we've been having.

My sewing machine is being repaired right now.
I would like to start making chi clothes. Anyone got any patterns to share?
Thought I would try making snuggle sacks too.

My aunt used to be a seamstress. She loved Pfaff. I do not have a serger! I am not that good of a sewer! lol. It's not uncommon for me to have to rip out a seam! haha. Years ago, when I was younger, I had made my entire wardrobe, except for jeans! Now, not so much. But I plan on getting back into it soon. We will be retiring soon! Yeah!

I bought Angel a rain coat at the Dollar Tree! Boy was I surprised! it works pretty well!

Thanks! I'll have to check Dollar Tree more carefully, didn't know they had doggie duds. Angel, you ARE a true sewer if you rip that much! Nobody ever gets too good to rip. lol
Jaden, if you want to make a snuggle sack, I'll share the dimensions I used for my 5.5 lb. little guy. He's in his right now. The free pattern from MillaMilla from another post looks like it has a good fit. The Butterick pattern I started with for my little winter coat was HUGE even in xs. I had to cut it way down. Simplicity "Designs for Dinky Dogs" were a good fit. Miss Daisy Designs online has some adorable patterns for sale, especially for boys, but I had to redo to get to fit. My next dog project a sling carrier, then I'm going to try turning old sweater sleeves into sweaters.
