Baby, It's cold outside!

If you happen to be spending your winter somewhere else than chilly, windy, snowy, gray Chicago, I am jealous! This winter has been brutal- a bunch of days with windchill well below zero.... plus it keeps on getting warm (by Chicago winter standards!), all the snow will melt, it will be in the 30's... and then the temp plunges again!

To help the boys survive the cold (and because I am a sucker for them!), I decided to make them coats. Also, I want to sew more - I have a sewing machine, but am not very good at it, so it seemed like good practice!

The end result turned out great... they somehow look simultaneously adorable and hilarious as they walk down the sidewalk all plaid. (I promised J that it was a manly plaid ;) Enjoy the pictures below...



And try to stay warm!

your pups are A-D-O-R-A-B-L-E... and I think the coats looks terrific. If you hadn't said anything, I would have never guessed that you weren't a pro seamstress! Well done.

If I ever see you & your pups out for a walk on the cold Chicago sidewalks, I will be sure to stop and say hello!

Thanks, Emily!

Definately stop & say hi if you ever run into us... the boys looove the attention they get outside - I'm convinced it's the main reason they like going out so much!

I love your pugs! I have two Westies, very social dogs too, but they are very jealous of each other and don't snuggle or sleep together. Oh well, at least they aren't lonely when nobody is home! By the way, I'm enjoying your blog very much and appreciate the links to other related blogs. Thanks for sharing!
