Sewing With Mummy

June 3, 2019


Mummy and I have been sewing on more harnesses, trying to get them completed before we leave the end of this month for our two-month-long EASTERN ADVENTURE, exploring the USA.  These pretty harnesses were made from laces and trims that Mummy and I found in Paris last year!  Each one is in a different color, and made with different antique laces, but the antique lace panel in the center is the same on each one.  All of the laces are very, very old and it took a long time to wash, iron and cut everything out.  We found the new trims in a really, really cute shop… which is where we also found the darling little flower buttons that will be sewn onto the collar of each harness.  Our “initial” will be sewn underneath each flower to make it easier to match the harness up with the correct doggie that it belongs to.  When Mummy bought the flower buttons and all of the trims, she had no idea what she would eventually use them for… they just HAPPENED to all match up when we went to make these ANTIQUE PARIS HARNESSES!  The body of the harness is made from an unbleached, soft muslin and goes perfectly with the antique feel.  We are both very pleased with the result.  Although it took over a week to get them finished, I think the result was worth it.  What do you think?  We will pack these to take with us on our trip and I hope that we are able to show them off to some of our friends at a face-to-face meet up!  Please don’t forget to contact us through this webpage with your phone number and email address if we are coming through your city and you would like to meet up with us.  I have posted our travel schedule on a previous post.  We sure are getting excited about our summer trip and we hope to see some of you this summer.  KISS KISS!!!

    I adore your harnesses!!! Mummy does such a great job! Did she have a pattern she bought initially, or did she just make one? I hope one day my mummy can learn to make me one and something for my brother. You and your sisters will be “stylin” . Will mummy make bows too? I can’t seem to get used to wearing one myself. Mummy keeps trying tho!

      Thank you very much! Mummy started off with a SIMPLICITY pattern and then gradually over time she has changed it up so that it fits our shape a little better than the original pattern. They are very easy to make but just take TIME to make each one… but they are not difficult. Sometimes she makes a simple matching hairbow but we have so many that we usually have something that will match most any outfit.

      Thank you very much. Mummy just taught herself to sew. When she was a little girl she took a neighborhood sewing class for a week but that was about it… then when she had children, she taught herself so she could make her two boys sweet little smocked outfits. 😘❤️😘

    The harnesses are beautiful!!! I just bought my first sewing machine! It’s a simple Janome. I haven’t even had time to unbox it! Hopefully this summer I can start learning to sew and eventually I can make my girls some harnesses.

    Millie, your mummy makes the most beautiful harnesses! She is just so talented I don’t think there is anything she can’t do! It would be great if mummy would sell a pattern for the harness on your website. Have fun on your summer adventure!

      Thank you very much. There are lots of harness patterns for doggies in the PATTERN BOOKS in fabric or craft stores. We started with a SIMPLICITY pattern and then altered it a little somit fit our shape better.

    I have to say, Mummy did a fantastic job. I can’t wait to see you all wearing them. I have my own doggie projects piling up and not started. I need to thought. There is a patriotic harness I need to get started on for our therapy visits. I am looking forward to seeing all the places you will go on your trip too.

      Ohhhhhh mr Mitch… Mummy had soooo many harness projects that had piled up it seemed overwhelming but one-by-one she knocked them out until now she only has ONE MORE left to go!!! I am sure she will buy more fabric further down the road but at least these projects will be FINISHED!!! We are taking the lovely hairbows that you made for us on our upcoming trip! Mummy already has them set aside with our packing. Every time we wear them we think if you 😘😘

    I used to sew a lot of my own clothes years ago, so I know the work your Mommy put in all your harnesses. She gets very creative with some of them. When you get to Pennsylvania don’t forget to check out the fabric shops. They have so many beautiful colors and patterns used in the quilts. Hugs ❤️❤️❤️
