DIY Quilted Dog Coat Tutorial
The fantastic Christmas issue of Sewing World Magazine is in the shops now and it's full of inspiring seasonal makes including my quilted dog coat tutorial and pattern. I set out to create a coat that was quintessentially English, with an added festive twist!
The coat is fully lined for warmth and I stitched mine using an old child's kilt which I picked up for pennies at a local car boot sale! It's super easy to make and the magazine comes with a full-sized pattern, for a medium sized dog, which can then be resized on a photocopier to suit any size of dog.
The kilt buckles provide a lovely traditional feel, perfect for a posh looking pooch!
The festive touch comes courtesy of a cute 'Santa Paws' applique!
I used our neighbour's dog for my model - Thanks Yogi!
The issue is on sale until 18th December, so there's still plenty of time to get your Christmas stitch on!
