I made one a while back and I wasn't totally pleased with it....I used a different pellon than the pattern called for....mistake...not a big one but the wallet just didn't have the stiffness I wanted plus I did not add the wristlet strap.....so I got the pellon that it called for and a swivel hook and D ring and here is my second attempt. I made another "oops" but it isn't a really big deal....I turned the zipper part down and it was supposed to be up with the zipper to be pulled from left to right instead of right to left...no biggie but it will probably bug me some.

The second one I made for myself and it used to sit on the sofa. Our first Sheltie claimed it for himself and would give anyone that sat on it, or near it, the old " stink eye". When we were in the position to have him put down, I wrapped him in the lap quilt and took him to the vet.......left the quilt with her to use for other dogs or cats that needed extra warmth.

deck getting an airing out. I'm hoping the dog hairs will fly off as well. Won't keep it out there long,though, it's too sunny and there are a few birds flying around to get to the feeders.
I've had a good couple of days at the sewing machine...got my quilt as you go done ahead...now I have to do some hand sewing and a little hand quilting to build it along some more. You'll see it when it has some more substance. Plus I need to make some more hickory nuts...oh a quilter's job is never done.......
