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!

I love the silkscreening you did. I can't believe you did 52!! that must of taken alot of time! Was it expensive to get 52 gifts like this together?

You came in from the darkness and held the door open wide
You stood there like a vision before my unbelieving eyes
I believe in what I see and also what I hear
But did the night play tricks on me or were you really there.

Aww, thanks guys!

It wasn't too bad because I bought everything in bulk.  The most expensive item was the bag itself but they were only $11 each and have a lifetime warrenty.  My clients are amazing and at least I can write it off in April!  Wink

Wow! You are insanely: generous, creative, clever, crafty, dedicated, caring! I'm super impressed! I may have to up my dog-gifts for next year after seeing this. I don't have any human neices or nephews- just canine ones! They could definitely use a car care-package like this!

What a great idea and kudos to you for making 52 (holy cow!!) of them!!

The choices you make today determine the choices you will have tomorrow.

What an amazing thing to do for your clients! My groomer and vet did nothing for the clients. So I would say you just made a very wise investment for keeping those customers, and getting lots of referrals from them.

Holy cow that's amazing!  I especially love the Zinfan-tail. Cheesy   Doggie daycare must be a lucrative business..  Or maybe you're just the awesome-est ever.   Those are some lucky pups!  If you don't mind me asking, how long did it all take you?

Oh, my, I wish my dogs were your clients, but Anaheim to San Francisco might be a little impractical for a daily commute. Grin

Where, oh where did you find that fabric with the Christmas puppies on it?  I NEED THAT FABRIC!
