How to make a dog coat

How to make a dog coat

On Saturday, I did a post on Roxy the traveling dog, on how to make a cozy wool coat, or capote for your dog. I had posted some pictures on Roxy’s facebook page of her in her capote, and had some comments asking how to make one. So I did something I have never done before, I tried to explain the steps in making the coat. I am not a person who sews, so this is a pretty easy project to do.

So take at a look at the post on Roxy the Traveling dog. And If you would rather just buy one, I can make a custom one for your dog.

Jackson Fall Art Festival is underway

Jackson Hole Fall Art Festival

The second weekend in September is the start of the Fall Art Festival here in Jackson Hole. The town of Jackson, and the art galleries go all out for 10 days. Every day there are new activities, gallery walks, and a multitude of exhibits and art to see. Friday night was the official kick off with “Palates and Pallettes”. This is a fun event where all the galleries in town team up with a restaurant or caterer and serve free food, wine and beer. There are always tons of people in town strolling the square, looking at art, and eating. It’s not always the best night to actually sell art, but it certainly gets people out and looking.
