I'm going to make Bentley a coat

I've decided since I need something to occupy me until my hip gets better I'm going to make Bentley a coat. I know...I know.
His coat isn't as thick as I would like, in fact it's very thin, so I'm going to rectify that.
It's getting down in the low 30's for our midnight walks and soon will be much colder than that. I'd like to make one for Ky too but she has a very thick undercoat and she would overheat.
I said I'm going to make it, that doesn't mean he'll wear it Will post pics when I'm done.

No..I wish! I'm going to sew it. Sewing is so relaxing, crocheting and knitting gives me panic attacks

I'm envious. Just a tad. I cannot see to save my life. Lol!!!!

My husband does all of our sewing. Where do you find your patterns or do you just pick them out of your marvelous mind?

My yorkies all have matching knit, crochets, and sewed sweaters and coats. My mom is a very proud FURR Grandma! She finds it to be relaxing. I am okay knitting and sewing but she is 1000x better than me.

Buddy has hand-me downs from my previous Golden, Lucky- I never got around to taking them in last year when I got him. Lucky was a big boy at 120 pounds and hip height compared to Buddy how is mid thigh height and only 90 pounds- He was much skinneir last year- I had to safety pin the coats and jackets in. He has a bright orange one to wear when in the woods (never know when some idiot will be hunting), a red Santa coat, and blue and yellow fleece rubber ducky coat. He also has boots but purely for protection since he will rip his pad open and keep right on going til he starts to limp. Very thin homemade fleece with mushers stuff directly onto his feet- I had to do the same thing with my last golden too. They love the cold but it does not love them.

Can't wait to see what you make him

He quickly learned if he wanted to play outside he had to wear clothes- He was very bald when I rescued him so a coat was a must. This year hopefully he won't need them unless it is heavily snowing- Makes de-snowing quick and easy. Remove coat and 90% of the snow is gone.

Can't wait to see what you come up with. I have coats for my yorkies, cause they do not have undercoats but the goldens don't really need anything here where we have little cold. Remember to post pictures of what you come up with.

Mika, on Pinterest there was a cute sweater & hat made from an arcyle sock for tiny dogs. If you frequent Pinterest you can probably find it in the Animal section or do a search. I was so cute

I'm not sure my DH even knows how to turn on my sewing machine LOL
I don't use patterns very much, maybe twice in my life, I just make my own. I will post pics IF it turns out right

lol. I put a sweater on my old lady Emma after she is shaved. I used to keep her in a show cut (Cocker Spaniel) but it is a lot of work and Emma does not enjoy being groomed, she will sit for it fine, but gives me that "look"...so now that she's 12 I figure "WHY"...I have even dressed my cats up...sigh I know, they looked pathetic but I couldn't help myself...they only lasted long enough for me to take a picture.

I can sew, but not well enough to try and make a jacket, holiday curtains and gift bags yes, but not clothes. I pitty any animal that would have to wear my creation.

Hope it goes well and pictures are a must if you get it done...lol
