I fell in love with this fabric when my labrador passed away. I missed her soft little ears so much. When I touched the pink fur at our local Ben Franklin's, I recognized that softness right way...it was Sandi's ears.
With a 25$ gift card, I was able to purchase the fabric for the coat. The coat went together quickly but then hung in my closet for 2 years when I couldn't find the right lining. I had some brown and pink geometric fabric that I had cut out but hated. So there it hung, waiting for its lining.
I ran across the polka dot charmuese and knew that my coat could finally be finished.
My friends gave me advice on the buttons, a little sparkle seemed like the perfect finishing touch.
It is a cozy little coat. But the best part is petting the soft fur on the sleeves and remembering the love of my dog.
