Hi everyone,

Thanks so much for letting me join!

I'm a designer and illustrator from South Wales with a keen interest in sewing. I've previously used it in my illustration work, but I want to get more into dressmaking and sewing stuff for my dog!

I'm still a beginner so I'll probably be needing lots of advice  :D

Can't wait to chat with you all :)

@rachieface What sort of dog do you have? What do you envision making for him/her?

@Fajita I have a whippet :)

I think I want to start with a simple coat and then move onto something like a fleece (similar to the one he's wearing in the photo which he's grown out of now!) :)

Love that fleece!   :D

One word of warning... don't take up knitting...

I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

Croeso Rachel.  Your whippet picture made me smile - not what you expect when South Walians' whippets come to mind  :)

Ah! A proper dog! Remember nothing is whippet-proof, only whippet-resistant. Is that fleece still in one piece?
