    Default Any Sewing Enthusiasts Out There?

    I know that this should probably be in the rescue section or off topic, but hoping it will get a bit more exposure in the general section!

    GR has been given some material and wadding to use to make dog coats for the greys, only trouble is that the person who usually makes them for us is suffering with arthritis in her hands and looks like won't be able to do it anymore.

    Soooo, I was hoping that someone here might know of someone that likes to sew, we can provide the materials, the pattern etc. Winter is fast approaching and we have doggies in kennels that we want to make sure stay warm.

    Would be good if they were Sydney based, but we can post etc to anywhere!

    Thank you for reading this!

    When would you need them to be returned to you by?

    I'm pretty good at sewing, if there's a pattern provided I'd happily do it

    Oooh Oooh! Righty-ho Masha, I'll get onto it and get some stuff to you!

    Megan, there is no set time frame, it's one of those things that is always needed.

    I'll find out how much we have in the way of supplies etc. Basically the coats are 2 layers of fleece with some wadding in between, and a polo neck stretchy collar. Then there is a tie on the back which gets wrapped around the middle of the body, not clasps or anything. The design is very much aimed at the greyhound shape.

    I'll pull out the one I have for Phee, and take a photo of it to give you an idea of what they look like (d'oh, should have done that earlier shouldn't I?).

    With sewing, the hardest bit is sorting out where everything goes, the easy part is stitching it together
    A photo would be appreciated
