Elsie's finished coat

I might have got a bit carried away on the trim.


I did a sort of blanket stitch round the bottom edge and crocheted a simple lacy bit for around the neck.


I think my dog, Wicket was about to sneeze in this photo...

That lace trim is hilarious. I love it. He is surely the best dressed dog in town.

She looks like Olive Oil from Popeye in her new jacket. And the nearly sneezing dog photo made me laugh out loud. So cute!

Elsie's coat is very sweet and a beautiful orignal.

AWWWWW! Very cute, i have been meaning to make my dog something similar. Her coat is actually acquired from snuggling into her brother, the golden retriever.
