Presenting Mr Cholmondeley Border

A couple of posts ago I showed off a bolero I had made using patterns and applique ideas from my 30s and 40s home dressmaking books.  I mentioned I had also made a little dog jacket for a special little boy.  Well, here he is!  I appliqued his jacket with countryside motifs as I was inspired by the farms all around us.  I was particularly pleased with my tractor motifs each using a large and small button from the button box.

My little model didn't really get the concept of posing for the camera and kept wriggling and hoping that the camera might in fact be a box of treats.  Oh well!
