New Felt Dog and Cat Friends

I have been busy creating some felties and thought I would share them! It started with a request from Nicole at Brizel4TheAnimals. She makes gorgeous silk art tapestry boxes and the third photo in each has a prop of some kind. She asked if I could make a little dog and cat face to use with her photos. After some thought, I came up with these two, Elmira and Eddie:

I was happy with the way they turned out so decided to add some felt supplies to my shops.

My friend Diana thought they were brooches, since I had mentioned I was going to make some of those. So as soon as my brooch pins arrived, I sewed two of them onto the backs for her.

While I waited for the pins to come, I made a couple of necklaces using black ribbon.

And then I went on to make three more dog brooches which I gave names to.




I had read a wonderful story by an  Etsy for Animals teammate about her greyhound fosters, which you will find HERE. That became my inspiration for the greyhound who I named Kenny, after Jane's foster dog. 


So THAT is what I have up to this week! I also made a few skirts for my shop, The Cat Rack
 What did you accomplish? Please share!

If you are interested in any of these felties, just click on the picture. I hope to expand my offerings to include other dog breeds.
