It's starting to get cool around here. After catching my terrible teen with her nose about to go into my red wine glass when I left the room (honestly, kids these days!), it was obvious she needed warming up. Between the terrible teen and the 2.5 year old being a terror ... Ok, you know I'm talking about Melody, don't you? 2.5 real years, 17ish in dog years. Best of both worlds.
I had the fabric stashed but decided I'd never get round to making the quilt I wanted to with it, so I sacrificed it in the name of dog fashion. I used a wool batting and backed it with polar fleece - nice and cosy and snug! Quilted it first and then added binding.
I made the bias binding myself (on the bias) using my
magic automatic electric bias maker. It's not perfect but it's a darn site easier than ironing it yourself.
Velcro tabs and fastening for impatient models. Zigzag stitching for impatient seamstresses.
Very recalcitrant model. She's lucky she didn't get pinned.
