A last minute finish

Talk about waiting to the last minute! I woke up this morning knewing it is the last day of the month, and I had no finished project to show for. So what to make? It had to be quick, because I also had to carve out two Jack the lantern and make dinner, and other boring stuff. And I didn`t want to make a bread basket this morning. As I stood in my sewing room trying to figure this out, I thought back on yesterday. Max and I attended our very first indoor dog exhibition yesterday. It was really crowded and loud. I had brought the stupid plastic cage, which does not work well at a exhibition. I swore that next time I would bring the other cage. I didn`t bring that cage because it had no cover, and a little doggy needs a cover so he can escape from all the impressions he gets on a exhibition.

And then I got it! I would make a cover today!! I was lucky to find a thick denim fabric so I didn`t have to use batting. And having little time to spend, I decided to sew the cover in one piece. So I layed the fabric over the cage, grabbed my scissors and started to cut. All the time I was doing this I kept thinking what a lazy fool I am, and that this will never end good. Would this come together???

It did!! It fits perfectly! The cover is a bit long, but will fit perfectly then I attache the wheels.

A window is a necessity so that a little doggy can peek out and check out if there is any good looking lady dogs around :) Helps the ventilation too.

Have fun sewing!
