Ruby’s New Jacket

100_3719 It’s Ruby’s first winter with us and she’s not too thrilled with going out in the cold.  In fact, she seems to be dropping a few hints that we may be keeping the house not as warm as she may prefer as she spends a lot of time sitting on the heat vents when the furnace runs.

So along with my helpful assistants, Ted and Lucy, out came a thrift store piece of polar fleece and we got started on a jacket for Ruby.

We borrowed an old jacket of Jake’s and enlarged the pattern.

Two layers of fleece right sides together with two layers of polyester batting in between.  Stitched all around – leaving an opening for turning.

Sewed the neck and the leg openings ends together.  Then attached hook & loop tape where flaps will meet snugly under her Beagle belly.

 

And the result – priceless!100_3869And now it’s time for a walk,
