30 lovingly handcrafted projects for your pooch
From the moment their little wet nose arrives on the doorstep a dog becomes part and parcel of the everyday goings on in your household. There to welcome you home with an eager wagging tail and eyes just sparkling love, to perch on your lap when you are feeling a little less than tip top, a dog’s heart has no limits and will love you for every second of every day, even if you are cross with them for chewing the back door frame. So why not whip up a whole host of crafty bits and bobs to show your dog how cherished they are?
As you flick through the pages of this book, all manner of crafty projects to crochet, knit, sew and bake will catch your eye. Each and every one offers a most lovely but practical item to show your pooch that they are loved and cared for in every way. Plus they enable you to personalise your doggy paraphernalia to mix and match in with your own decorating style rather than having to settle for the everyday mundane doggy stuff, which too often comes along in various shades of brown.
Why not make them a warm cosy bed to snuggle into during those long hours of sleep that are essential for snoring the day away? Keep them warm on your daily walk when the days turn wet and nippy with a made-to-measure dog coat. And when those sunny days show their smiles, tog them out with a jaunty neck scarf or most dapper bow tie for their saunter around the neighbourhood.
We are all thoughtful of where our food comes from nowadays and what indeed it is made from. If you whip up a few dog treats using ingredients from your kitchen cupboard you will know exactly what your dog is munching on and that it is keeping them healthy and bright.
Everything you make for your dog not only gives you the joy of crafting your day away but also shows them how special they are as proud owners of an array of handmade goodness which in turn will be chewed, rummaged in, chased about and proudly worn, all with a wagging tail and a thankful heart….
