Here is the amazing tin that charliebrown sent me - I love it!  She picked my theme "Reading"

The goodies inside included literary word magnets and a beautiful book mark - no more dog-earing pages for me!

And it has feet!!!

Thanks so much charliebrown!

12  Doggie Bags for Clients (pic heavy!) in Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects by DogGrrl on: December 30, 2006 09:32:51 AM
I wasn't sure where to post this since there is sewing and silkscreening and it has to do with pets so mods please feel free to move!
Here is what I did for my doggie daycare clients this year - doggie bags they could leave in their car for road trips.  After making 52 of them my garage looked like an airport luggage area!

Made bandannas for each dog:
back fabric:


Wine with individual labels for each dog:

Stuff I put in the bags, nothing really crafty here but all practical! The yellow pouch is a doggie first aid kit:

I made a cd for each dog with a lost dog poster in pdf format so if their dog was ever lost they could just bring this cd into any copy shop and run off as many copies as they needed:

A tag which has my business number on it as a secondary contact number:

And finally, the bag which I silk screened for each dog:

Yup, 52 of these puppies (pun intended!) whew!

Finally have time to post some pics!  Here is the amazing sweater thebagfairy knit - I couldn't get a decent detailed picture, but there are amazing cables throughout the pattern and the yarn is sooooo soft AND it fits Monkey perfectly!  I am in awe of her skills!!  This is going to be his Thanksgiving dress up sweater!

The sweet little sock Monkey - I think Monkey is in love with his new monkey!

Thanks sooo much thebagfairy!!!!  This was one of the funnest swaps ever!

Here are a couple of pics of the stuff I sent to Scream-a-little:

Purse - it has a magnetic snap and the lining is just black cotton with an inside pocket of a different pin-up halloween girl

Night light - this Shag pic just cracked me up - you can almost hear Death saying, "would you just die already?"  Cheesy

Silkscreened mini-totes filled with candy: Bride of Frank and Frank - The back says Boo and the green is glow in the dark ink:

A really bad pic of the cd that I burned a image on with light scribe

I didn't take a pic of the t-shirt or the store bought items.  Glad you liked everything!

I received today!  Scream-a-little definitely spoiled me!

A bootiful scarf:

a great little leopard print bag and a spider stuffy and a pumpkin stuffy:

2 votive holders, a trinket box, wine charms, a wooden pumpkin cutout, yummy smelling sparkly soap and notecards:

and some cute ornaments along with the ones that didn't make the journey  Cry

And some spooky bubblegum!

Thanks so much Scream-a-little.  I love everything!

16  Golf towel - machine embroidery in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by DogGrrl on: October 01, 2006 12:21:26 AM
So, I was bored tonight and feeling a bit down.  The bf is in Reno at a golf tournament.  

I was missing him so I stitched this up tonight to suprise him when he gets home (Caddyshack is one of his favorite movies).

Close up:

Thanks for looking!

17  Re: Swing your parder - dosie - doe! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by DogGrrl on: September 24, 2006 06:10:07 PM
Thanks so much for your posts!  Honestly, this is the first reconstructed bag that I've made that hasn't ended up in the garbage bin!  

The tute was from Leah's book and I just adapted it to fit an album cover.  I polyurethaned the album cover(s) because I didn't want it to get beaten up - it was in amazing condition at almost 60 years old!  I hope I look that great at 60  Wink!

I am thinking of printing a scan of the booklet onto fabric paper and then making a cosmetic/sunglass/whatever case.  Does anyone have a preferred brand of fabric paper?  Here is a couple of (really bad) scans to show you what the booklet looks like:

Once again, thanks guys! I love Craftster!

18  Swing your parder - dosie - doe! in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by DogGrrl on: September 19, 2006 07:31:45 PM
So I made this last weekend.  I found the coolest square dancing album (circa 1947) at a thrift store and knew I had to make the cover into a purse!


Side view:

The awsome fabric I found for the lining:

Now I want to do something with the cool booklet that came with the records - it is a square dancing instruction booklet full of dances like, "You swing my gal, I'll swing yours"! ha!

Comments and/or suggestions greatly appreciated!!

19  GREATEST GARDEN CONTEST - my entry! in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Completed Projects by DogGrrl on: July 19, 2006 01:26:51 PM
After seeing everyone's amazing gardens - I am almost too embarrased to post these pics!  The reason why I love my garden so much is that it puts up with so much abuse (around 20 dogs a day run around on it!) - and still manages to look pretty (to me at least! Cheesy)

You can see the Golden Gate Bridge! Yesterday was pretty hazy so it isn't too clear in the picture, but I swear it is there!!

And a pic of a couple of my daycare dogs

I used to have creeping thyme where the bricks are but the dogs kept trying to eat it!  I have to think of sometihing else to plant there that can withstand a lot of traffic - any suggestions?  Wink

Thanks for looking!

Every the end of the week I host Yappy Hour for my Friday clients (I have a little doggie daycare).  The humans can relax and have some wine and food and the dogs get to run around and play.  I made these shirts for my Yappy Hour gang!

opinions/comments greatly appreciated!  Thanks for looking!
