I really hope I did the kilt justice with my flannel sheet :-)I LOVE RECYCLING!!!!!!!!
Thank you!!!!!!!! If you look at any of my other items they are ALL made with recycled items. I am disabled so buying anything new is rare. Plus I love watching as I take something unloved and make it into something that will be loved once again for a long time. :-)
I need to make another black one by the end of Sept. so I promise to get how to pics and post a tutorial for it. It really easy SUPER easy but easier to show in pics then trying to describe it all. :-)
This sounds like an amazing book. I have crocheted for about 30+ years now, but have never really got into granny Squares .This book gives me a new look at them :-)
These bags are so EASY to make. Seriously, sew a t-shirt tube to fit and then sew a T on the end to go between the front legs and through 2 slits you cut on the top. All our friends know I use leather scraps to help protect his butt, so I never need for materials. Slinky is 100% happier with his freedom. He even uses the doggie door
Thank you, I just love my indoor herb garden in them.
LOL Slinky is doing better and stronger then ever!!!!!!!!! we have had friends staying with us, along with their 3 dogs. Out of 5 dogs they all knew who the head dog was, little Slinky. He plays for hours and runs around outside ALL day long. He is in better shape then our younger Chiwienie. We thought Slinky would slow down after a while but he will be paralyzed 2 years this September and we can no longer imagine life that he has working back legs anymore. We look at him for inspiration EVERY DAY!!!!
Thank you. I think the best thing I every decided to do was add the soft inside liner.
Thank you, they really are a lot easier then you would think. The sun shining through them makes for an amazing light show :-)
We are financially strapped, like most of the population, so everything we have needed for Slinky has had to be from recycled materials. Some of his diapers are washable but he can get out of the easily. So I am still working on that type of design. He is an amazing dog and everything is his new favorite thing LOL
I can't believe after 2-1/2 years of trial and error I finally found something that will work and stay on a VERY active dog. Thank you for you comment it is encouraging.
Actually I found any water based paint will work. This was done in a flat acrylic house paint, we bought it by accident and didn't know what to do with it. I will correct the paint type, I didn't realize it said water color paint sorry about that. We have many things in out home with this and always get compliments on them. Have fun and post a pic when you are done, I would love to see it.
I love this idea and plan on making one this weekend. I am thinking I might try to side in pockets along the sides (where boning would be) and using pieces of a gallon milk jug. If I cut a bunch tit might even be like a thick boning. HHHHHHMMMM if I don't sew the hem in those areas and only fold the fabric over I could the milk jug pieces removable for washing. Will definitely post pics for you :-)
Thank you, He definitely was the warmest while sledding :-)
Thank you, I love wearing it and even in winter if I wear my yoga pants underneath I am TOASTY warm :-)
I made a pair of Moccasin style boots that I made first. The longest part, besides figuring it all out as I went, was doing all the hand sewing. In order to go thru the top of the water shoes I used a leather punch, worked great LOL! I have more water shoes :-) and am already thinking of my next pair.
I loved the spats idea also :-) The fabric is upholstery fabric so it give the illusion of a suede. Plus help the boots keep their shape and hides any flaws LOL!
I just put a tutorial up showing how I made the 8 panel circle skirt. My first tutorial so I hope you like it. All my skirts are made with the same pattern, I just tweek it here and there.
I will be making another skirt this week and will make sure I take more pics and the pattern with directions :-)
I really could not believe how strong the actual yarn is when it is just single ply.
Love the directions. I have made numerous skirts but this will be today's project :-) thank you for the directions!!!!! I will post my version as soon as I am done :-)
I did a little research on it before I started nd it can actually be 40% to 60% warmer than wool. After working with the fur I really believe that. I am hoping to have it completed this weekend :-)
thank you and SOOO easy too. I am going to make the rest of the sweater into a purse now :-)
Thank you. It was so easy, once I had the pattern made. I made a quarter circle with lightweight paper, then just folded it as needed. I am working on a 16 piece skirt made for t-shirts now :-)
