Crafting For Dogs

Jasmine looking spiffy

As an artist and crafter, I can’t help but create cute stuff for Jasmine. While we were in Maui, we happened upon a little pet boutique in the town of Paia. Inside were cute treats, toys and accessories. I loved the different collars and leashes, but the first thing that came into mind was “I can make that!”

So I did. I found the proper hardware on the Internet. I had some great sushi print fabric that I had been saving for just this kind of occasion. And Jasmine is now sporting a spiffy new collar and leash.

I love creating things, and crafting for Jasmine has been SO much fun. She has a plethora of fluffy, soft pillows with washable pillow covers, blankets to keep her warm, and a spiffy dog paw print coat for walks on chilly days. I do draw the line at “doggie outfits” although my husband would beg to differ (a fleece coat does NOT a frufru outfit make). I would have made her some toys IF she liked toys, but this far, stuffed soft figures have not appealed to her.

I wrote up some detailed instructions on how to make the dog collar and leash set on a new blog–What I Made. Hope you can make one for your precious pooch…it was really lots of fun!
