This one is for our new 'Best Friend' Mr. Frederick Peanut & his 'mummy' Caroline. X
Now, I did measure *most* of this project, but after an initial tape-measuring I confess to 'eye-balling' about 90%!
All measurements are approximate!
You will need:
1 m oil cloth
A coat hanger
Cotton fabric for 2 pockets
Plastic bag rings or large D rings
Length of bamboo cane
Thread & elastic thread
Clear plastic 5" x 5"
Step 1: First Things First...
Many tutorials recommend using invisible tape on the base of your presser foot.
I did this for the first time... I'm not sure it helped, though it wasn't hard to apply & certainly didn't hinder...
Step 2: Choose A Hanger...
Mine was 14" long, so leaving 1" seam allowance I cut my width at 16".
I cut the length to 24" so it will finish up around 22" long.
Cut a back facing piece to the depth of the whole hanger and the same width as the main piece.
Carefully draw around the hanger & cut both the main piece & back facing to shape.
Step 3: Plan Your Pockets
Two plastic bag strap rings to clip leads onto...
A shirred patch pocket for poo-bags...
Three box pleated pockets for toys/ treats...
A bamboo bar with cut-outs to loop collars around.
Measure it all up and draw it all out on the back of the main piece. Remember to include seam allowance and a nice big turn up at the bottom.
(I tried to be quite precise with this, but It ended up just as a guide later on!)
Step 4: Top Pocket...
Cut a clear piece 5" x 5" for the window. Tape it into position.
Fold & hem the top. Fold & pin the other 3 sides.
