For her papa's birthday, Delia Dog and I made these boxer shorts for her to give to him: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=452249.msg5442631#msg5442631



There was enough of a remnant that I thought I could make a few of those dog bandanas that slide over a collar and donate them to our local shelter for snazzying up some senior dogs looking for homes.



But I could only get three and they were all the same, because of the repeat of the print and the way the remnant was laid out, so I decided to do some appliques of the other images on the print using other remnants. Plus it kind of left out the "old gals" which made me sad.







They're all reversible so the shelter can use them for all kinds of dogs for adoption events - twice the function in the same about of storage space! So while digging though stash for appropriate fabrics, I found some that I couldn't resist making into these "bandanas" even though they had nothing to do with the original print.





And one last close up of one of the appliques...



I did contact the shelter to make sure they would want these and they told me that they had just been talking about getting some for adoption events and photo shoots, so YEY! And I recently saw where they have several local events and parades they'll be involved with over the summer so hopefully they'll get lots of use out of them. There ended up being 17.  Grin

Those are adorbs, who could resist a pup all dressed up to meet and greet potential new peoples? Nobody!

I guess you can tell I don't have a dog since I never knew that's how those worked, over the collar like that. Which is of course so clever & makes perfect sense now I know.

Thanks! A lot of times folks just tie a regular bandana around their pups's necks, but this style is a nice way to keep them on, make sure they don't choke the dog, make sure the pattern on the material shows, etc.

What a sweet way to help get some lucky dogs adopted! Those bandanas are the cutest, and I'm sure they'll spark many lasting relationships. Two paws up!
