Fall brings beautiful color, honey crisp apples, rain, and of course cooler temperatures. With the chill I knew the fosters are going to need a coat for our daily walks. I'm a complete novice at sewing, so I searched far and wide for a pattern online; but couldn't find one for a greyhound's body and ended up attempting to do everything on my own. The coat is double layered heavy sweatshirt fleece with a snood; and the best part is that all the supplies only came to $10! Debbie was a great sport as my model and I think she approves.

I ordered a pajama from Skinny Dogs

She preferred to use it as a chew toy instead


  1. You did a really great job. I'm a sewer and make coats for my dachshunds. I always have to adapt patterns for their long bodies.

  2. Thanks Ruby and Penny's mom. Your dogs are soo cute! I'll be following your blog.

  3. Nice autumn coat! We are going out tomorrow to get some material to make a warm autumn coat for Earl. So far we have been getting a lot of use out of his raincoat!
