The Emperor's New Vest

Napoleon is sporting his new vest that I sewed for him the other day. Can you tell that I am having so much fun with my sewing machine?Napoleon is trying to be a good sport by sitting still. But he is deathly afraid of my Canon Digital Rebel camera. He use to shake and hyperventilate when he saw me with that camera and then he would eventually run off and hide. He never had a problem with my Canon PowerShot, probably because it was so small. But he is so much better about it now and actually tolerates it, no more shaking or hyperventilating.The straps that wrap around his neck and belly is fastened with sewn-on velcro.The fabric has Dalmatians on it. I bought this fabric from Reprodepot.com.

I love that second picture. I has a "I'm standing still just for you" kind of look to it :)

Oh my goodness, this has got to be the cutest thing ever! Love the jacket but especially the model- I'm sure I act about the same when someone pulls out a camera on me, too!

He is always so cute. The wary glance gaze he's giving you in the second photo makes me laugh. I love the little cape. You are quite the seamstress!

Cute little guy, sorry he's so afraid of the camera :( At least he's getting less afraid right? P.S. I like the seaport yarn the best too, I really hope I'm gonna be able to get it :)
