It’s very quiet in the town so I have skipped doing a bake this week. Instead I have a couple of commissions to get done.
First on the machine is a big pair of pants for one of our Posh Dog pals. He has worn my belly bands for a couple of years – but now he’s getting a bit more – um – ‘leaky’? So we have decided to make him a big pair of proper big girl pants.
It’s a bit of guess work as to if it will work – but you have to helps them out don’t you
I think I have worked it out – I love designing and playing with my fabric – and cutting out – but I want to cut out more! It’s the getting organised and sorting it all out after that is the hard work. And when you have finished – the photographing and listing – well that’s like eating a frog!!!!
I have decided to learn a few bag making tricks this year and expand the Posh Dog range to make things for people out of dog patterned fabrics – bags – purses – useful bits and bobs to try to gain a few sales in the summer months. The coats and jumpers go crazy during the winter months – but come April I need other ideas.
I am calling it Posh Dog for You and so far there are camera straps and a pretty soft bag.
Coming soon will be bags and storage – and a few other useful items. If you have any suggestions for a project just let me know.
You will find the new items under the Accessories section of the shop
As we all know – it’s snowed!
And the chill is due to continue.
As you can expect – I have sold loads of jumpers and coats in the past 10 days. There is still a bit of choice – although not much in the fleece coats!
Drop in to the shop quick!!!
You know me – never sit still!!
We have new fabrics for this year
And I have found some super cute ribbon to use for the clips
Can’t wait to get at them!!!!

I am sure someone is pinching days out of the week – they seem to be flying by already! I just seem to get started on the week – get things going and under control – and it’s Saturday and I have to go away again.
So far in the last 10 days or so Alfie has chewed – the brand new jumper I made him – TWICE.
I can repair – but – honestly – how ungrateful!!!
He has also chewed Henry’s old fleece – that only just fitted so that’s a goner.
He has also chewed his new vest I made for him to go under his rain coat – there is so little left of that you can’t even tell what it was.
I think I will knock up a couple of quickies with the new super chunky yarn that has just arrived – perhaps he will find that too thick to chew!!!
Can you make me a vest for my dog from a spare safety vest I have?
Course I can love!
I love my job!!!!
It really does!!!
Please welcome little Teddy to the Posh Dog gang (9″)
And – at completly the other end of the scale – the largest coat I have ever made – for an elderly ridge-back at 30″
What ever the shape or size – we can do it!!!!
The way it is working at the moment is – as soon as I start to work on some stock pieces I get custom order coming in – so it’s taking me ages to get the new fleece coat colours out.
This is the first of the red tartans – in a large size
The moral of this story is – if you want an order before Christmas – contact me and shout loud – then you will get done before the normal stock items!
– – – – and I have changed the fleece coat pattern a little.
So many of you are now using a body harness – and you want a hole added for you to clip your lead through!!!!
I have dropped the wrap around chest band for a mid side band that has a velcro fastening BOTH sides for extra adjustment. This means I can add a button hole stitched space to the centre back for your leads!!!!
So from now on – all the new styles listed and any commissions can have a harness ‘buttonhole’ added.
I don’t add a hole as standard – as all harness are different – but – I can add one if you tell me where your harness sits – no extra charge.
Any requests for coats to be delivered before Christmas – shout out now – other wise it will be January deliveries
I am not baking this week. It has been really quiet in the shop this week and I have winter coat orders starting to com in.
I have new fleece – some novelty prints and some tartan, plaid and Argyle. Checks are all the rage for this season – you can’t beat a good tartan!
If you have a looooong, skinny dog – or a rOund, short dog and would like me to make to order – I don’t charge extra for commission work – it’s what I am doing every day anyway – just contact me.
If you would like to browse in the SHOP – keep an eye out for the new fleece and waterproof coats.
This is what happens when your dog beats you to the treat box!!!!
It sure has been stormy this week – and that’s an understatement!
First waterproof coat of the season is waiting to be collected (as modelled by Muffin)
SHOP / ORDER NOW
I had to empty the fabric cupboard the other week so the chap could change the metres – and look what I discovered.
I bought 5 metres of the ages ago – and I had forgotten all about it. Love the bright colours – I have already started chopping it up!
