Sewing Project #1:Dog Coat January 26, 2013

I received a sewing machine as a Christmas gift and I finally found the time to get it out and learn how to use it. After figuring out how to thread the machine and what in the world a bobbin was, I started my first project. Project # 1: try to make a dog coat for my crazy husky. It has been over 10 years since I was in home economics so it took me some time to get everything in order. After making a mistake or two, I finally got it down and was sewing like a champ. I worked all night on the coat and I think it turned out pretty good for my first go around. The dog was not pleased about having to wear it but she wore until the next morning then I let her free. Next project is a 3 tier skirt, updates to come.
