Bebe Jacket - Part 1

This little gal, she likes to quilt (and to sit upon quilts). She curled up behind me today in the floor and snoozed while I worked on part of Bebe's jacket.

It's a free form process and I'm still not in the habit of taking photos as I go. So far it's been... cut out tissue paper pattern, try tissue paper pattern on dog, make another tissue paper pattern, cut 5" and 3" random strips from not-quite-scrap fabric, arrange, arrange again, stitch pairs together vertically, pin, stitch together horizontally...

Iron the windowpane, just like Miss Audrey taught me.
And, voila, a pieced fabric for the top of a cozy dog jacket!

(Slightly rumpled here from behind tied on the Bebe dog for size.) It's bigger than the finished product and will be trimmed into nice curves later. I hope it works. :crosses fingers:

Meanwhile, Judy the Pocket Beagle says that she would like one in yellow paisley, please ma'am. She pulled the fabric out of the stack herself!

OMG, Sara, my heart skipped a beat when I saw that wonderful yellow fabric and those delicious yellow walls!! I'm going to march right down to pottery barn and spend 5 billion dollars on that bedspread and cut it up for my chair!! teehee...

I have two yellow damask pillows I picked up from pier1 that remind me of that fabric:http://www.washingtonspaces.com/blog/uploads/Image/CostPlusPier1/DamaskPillows.jpg

I wish I could find fabric like that at the fabric store. Cross your fingers!


(btw, I didn't want to post this here bc it's off-topic, but I didn't see an e-mail address for you on your profile).

How sweet . . . Judy looks like a very sweet dog. I'm not sure that Bently likes quilting, but he sure does like quilts. Momma is planning on making him a quilt of his own, as he hogs ours a bit too much. lol!

What lovely fabrics! I'm sure Bebe will look simply lovely in such attire! Poor Bently gets so cold, we need to make him a sweater, too. :)
