David - Yea, his fur is great during warmer months because he can be more active than many dogs, but it has really been in issue in winter, as he has little insulation. (hence the fleece). Don't dogs just add so much to the experience? Yours looks like quite the adventurer, with that big grin on his face. The one thing I learned from this project is that you want the garment to be well fitted near his body but very loose around the neck and legs, because our idea of range of motion is much smaller than theirs, and they need room to contort.
Chris - Yea the leg holes were modified several times to get the exact dimensions. The odd shapes of his torso made the project complicated but very worthwhile, now I see why the "fitted" fleeces at rei are $30+ while the lay over versions are half the price. Of course I doubt they are effective, I wouldn't stay too warm if someone laid my down jacket unzipped over my back, so getting the dimensions right was crucial.
Andrew - Awesome pouch! Funny thing is, if you went to the store to buy one you'd probably have spent 10 times as much for something that did half of what you wanted. These are the types of products I really plan on doing the majority of MYOG on. I want to do some backpacks and tents as well, but when I look at much of the gear in my pack (stuff sacks, tarps, etc.) I just started counting how much money I could have saved. The little things add up. I have already been hooked by the MYOG idea, custom products for a fraction of the cost. Who wouldn't love it.
