Illuminated Doggy & Me Raincoats #WearableWednesday

20141101_112342

Gladys Delgado-Garced finished up her doggy & me ponchos and umbrella hats for the Adafruit/element14 Hats Off Challenge:

Hello everyone! So today is the day this great experience ends but I will keep on making! This was my very first Blog, I know I made mistakes, but I too have learned from them. This was so much fun, I thank Luz Amparo for her great sewing skills and Kyle for the great tech mind. I have enjoyed taking a look at what my competitors have made and from the beginning, I knew I was up against talented people. You did great! Good Luck to all of you! Below I will show you the doggy poncho build. It all started with my inspiration photo, then from paper to fabric to vinyl. His was the hardest to get right due to his size and shape of his body. We made 7 or 8 prototypes for him and in the end it was so worth the trouble! We did two for me. We did away with the collar of my inspiration poncho, but it’s so nice without it. I made a collar out of chasing el wire instead. I have included all of the things we used for the ponchos including the magnet and plastic snaps. The button will go on later. Enjoy my pics.

    Thanks for posting my design! I’ve been home sick and just trying to catch up on my wearable Wednesday videos and reading the blog post and found my design. Thanks again!
