Some Necessary Sewing

Sewing project for Mouse- a little coat to wear inside. Found a fleece remnant at JoAnn's last year and stashed. Just enough fabric for pattern pieces to fit.
There are little embroidered trucks all over the soft blue fleece.
At this point just need some hook and loop tape to sew onto closing tab at neck and tummy. The sleeves were not all that hard to sew, I was a bit worried if I could do them right.
Had to share this photo. We've had some frosty mornings, you can see frozen dew on everything that was shaded. Mouse went with me to feed roosters and found something interesting in a feed tub. Somehow the tub seems to have grabbed his head! LOL

Did not find any fabric for border on Pineapple Blossom Christmas top. It was pouring rain in Tucson the day we drove up and I only stopped at JoAnns Fabrics. Man-o-man the place was picked over as far as pretty holiday fabrics. I did purchase a roll of cotton batting at 40% off. Lot'sa tops to quilt and cannot use excuse of not having batting to get started on those tops.


  1. Can't wait to see a pic of mouse in his little coat! :)

  2. So cute to have a doggy coat for Mouse. Love the colour.
