"Can you make me a shirt with detachable sleeves?"
"Can you make me a double shofar case with a pocket for a notebook on the outside?"
"CAN YOU MAKE ME CHAINMALE?!?!?!!!!!!!!!!!"
Yep, I've heard some pretty strange requests in my day, but I've never been asked this before:
"Can you sew something for a dog?"
Now this one didn't come from my brothers, no this came from a lady whom I use to go to church with. She works at a cancer center a couple of towns from where I live and her boss owns a therapy dog. A few times a week he brings his dog, Bingo, to work and visits the patients. He (the owner, not the dog) expressed his desire to this lady I know that he wanted a doctor's coat for his dog to wear whenever he came to work. She told him that she knew a girl who could help him out: ME! I'd never been asked to sew for anything but a human before so I said I'd give it a shot!
After some research I found a pattern that could work for a doctor's coat and some nice white scrub like material (McCall's 5776 for anyone interested).
Here's what I cooked up:
So I guess now I can put on my résumé "dog clothes" as a skill. :) I'm so thankful for this learning opportunity! If your ever in Athens, TN stop by The Athens' Regional Cancer Center and go see little Bingo and his sharp looking new coat!
