If you've ever met my husband, you know he's a Yankees fan. Actually, maybe even if you haven't met him... his fandom is that strong. Since the Yankees are on a bit of a dive this week (as in, 3-1 against in a 7 game playoff series) I decided to finish this project. And by "finish" I mean "do" because even though I've had the material for over a year, I hadn't actually cut anything out before today. Take a look:
These are little capes for the dogs. Those of you familiar with my Facebook page know that a couple years ago I made some bandannas for the dogs which have our football teams on them. Specifically, they are reversible so the dogs can "cheer" for either the NY Giants or the SF 49ers (guess who cheers for which team?). George has wanted some similar doggy gear for the Yankees, so today he gets his wish. And they only took an hour to do!
I'm not sure why I cared enough about dog gear to really work on those straps... they were the hardest part with all the turning inside out. Other than that, the cape material is fleece, so not much sewing is required. Very easy! And hopefully they'll bring some luck to the Yankees tonight!
Further dog-modeling pictures are likely coming soon.
