My beautiful Abbie grew up on the A show hunter jumper circuit and had the requisite horse show dog wardrobe, including a bridle leather collar with brass nameplate,a leather leash with brass nameplate...
and a Baker blanket with her name embroidered on the left side.
Since I have been in a blanket sewing kind of mood, I thought it would be fun to make a 1:9 scale dog blanket. Originally, I was going to make it for my model Abbie, but then I reconsidered. The real Abbie never really liked wearing clothes. Probably her portrait doesn't either.
Fortunately, I have a lot of other dogs to choose from.
It was a hard decision, but in the end, I opted to go with the trotting Dalmatian.Every blanket gets a tote bag.
This was mostly a fun Maketober project, but it's easy to imagine this finding its way into a live show entry, especially now that I have a winter scene diorama.
That was fun, but I think I might be done with blankets now... at least until the next snowfall!
