This is Mona. She is one of 3 of our dogs. She was the first and has been with us since before we got married. We rescued her from a shelter. The told us she was a jack russell/ wire haired terrier mix. She is the smart one in our pack, sneaky but smart. She is incredibly agile, coordinated and super fast. The hubs has been taking her with him kayaking. She is perfect for this with her size and balance. It is so fun to watch her out there and she definetely puts a smile on people’s faces when they see her out on the water. Ok so I gush about her, because I am totally a dog person.

Here is a photo of her standing on the edge of the kayak with her lifevest on. Nothing to do with making a dog coat, but I think it’s cute.

I decided to make her a little something for the next camping trip. A dog coat for her that would serve to keep her warm at night since she is on the skinny side. Her proportions are a little off when it comes to buying store bought dog clothes. She is rather long and thin. Even when I tried to find a pattern online, nothing seemed to cover her as much as she needed. I came across an awesome tutorial by Sew Doggy Style, on how to draft your own dog coat pattern according to your dogs measurements. Very easy to follow and great pictures.

 

I used a regular cotton camo fabric for the outer and a nice warm fleece for the inside or lining. It  mona-dog-coat-5
