1  Knit toys for big dogs? in Knitting: Discussion and Questions by pixiestixchick65 on: June 24, 2007 11:13:52 AM
This is my sweet, not-so-little puppy, Caesar.  In actuality, he just turned three, but he's such a cutie, he's still a "puppy."

I want to make my grandma's dog (a mini schnauzer) a sweater at some point, but since a 100 lb. German Shepherd really doesn't need a sweater in South Florida, I'd like to make him some toys instead.  He loves stuffed animals and squeaky toys, and loves getting his big nose into my yarn stash and trying to snuffle my knitting.

Basically, I'd like to make him some things that are big enough for him, but also rugged enough that he won't rip them apart.  Does anyone have any good patterns for big dogs?  Or at least any tips?  I feel like felting the final pieces before I sew them together would make them stronger and less likely for him to put a tooth through, but I just don't know.

2  Beading my own watch band in Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions by pixiestixchick65 on: March 25, 2005 11:24:42 AM
I've noticed several threads surrounding watches, but I haven't really found anything regarding beading bands for a simple watch-face.  I bought a very basic round watch-face at Michael's the other day, and I want to bead a watch band for it, but I don't really have any ideas for a band design.  I want something kinda funky and cute without being too loud or old-fogey-ish, if that makes any sense.  I've looked at various bracelet patterns, but none have really inspired me.  Has anyone else out there beaded their own watchband?  Please post pictures or ideas; I'll try to post a picture of my watch-face soon.

I can't find the exact face, but it's almost identical to this one:
