    I couldn't find a harness I really liked in P@H (not sure what's going on there, they only had 3 different types and they were all their own brand) Anyway, we got him a plain one just so he has one and then I set to to make him a jacket type, I'm pretty pleased with how it's turned out, you can't see very well but it's got a fleece lining. Jack seems to like it too :)

    Thank you :) I got the fabric for a very cheap 99p for a metre and made both boys a bandana with it, I didn't want to spend a lot as I'm still learning :eek:

    WOW that's really good. He really suits the colours. I think they always look so smart and like the coolest dog in the park in custom made stuff! Wish I was better with my sewing machine. I've made a few toys for Rufus but would love to be able to make stuff like this. I know in my head how to do it, but I just can't keep the material straight. Might have a go at a collar one day when i'm feeling confident!

    I love it! I bought some material yesterday to make Henri a cape for our Halloween party and good christ I can't make even the most basic of things :(

    Jack has lovely sable colours! Henri is a sable chi too only his blonde is very dominant!

    Thank you :D My friend does sewing for a living, mainly curtains and things and she's had me drawing pencil lines on my machine to follow to try and keep straight. It's the curves I have trouble with :eek: the machine just seems to run away and go exactly where I don't want it too ;) We are lucky that we have a fabric outlet type shop near us and everything is 99p a metre so I don't feel so bad if I ruin something (scares the life out of me when my friend tells me she is sewing something that cost £500 a metre :eek: )

    Me too, I've done sewing all my life (have 5 sewing machines). The sewing looks really neat and the design and colours of the harness looks good too.

    It's brilliant well done:D can't believe you are only just learning to sew;) I've been sewing years & still go off the rails at times lol, when I used to make corsets I used to draw the lines on with tailors chalk to keep them straight;)

    5 machines!! That's just greedy:rolleyes: I only have 4:mad:
