Drawings I made for a fun valentine’s day project that a fellow local blogger is working on—I’ll post details once it’s live.

In honor of our the dogs and cats in our lives, here are three new custom address stamps! Choose from one dog, a dog and a cat, or two cats with your name and street address. Find them in our shop here.

A custom birthday cake topper for a shark loving four-year old! I don’t normally make them for birthdays but what a fun project!

I used an old suitcase to make a cat bed. This one is big enough for both our boys to sleep together—which they have loved to do since we adopted them both together. It’s on top of the fridge and gives them a little hideaway. Seeing their ears stick out over the top kills me. And yes! Milton and the cats get along wonderfully. They’re not sleeping together yet… but in a few years, just maybe!!

Milton doesn’t like toys with squeakers which limits the choices from the store. This one I made him from a scrap of foam I had from another project. I cut a long rectangular ship of fabric and wrapped it around the foam and sewed up the edge. I tie it into a loose knot and then he works and chews on it until it is undone.

More sewing! A blanket was made for Milton. The fleece is called baby whisper or something similar, bought on the remnant stack at Hancock Fabrics. The flipside is from the Heather Ross collection, Briar Rose. I purchased it locally at Intown Quilters. I used two yards of each and just sewed them together, no quilting.

I have sewn a few pet related projects in the evenings recently so I’m posting them for the next few days… This sleeping sac is one of them. It’s just two open bags sewn together at the top with a gusset bottom. The interior chenille was a blanket from IKEA that was on sale for $6, I think. I made 4 sacs with it and still had some left.

Once it was time to for him to go up for adoption, we couldn’t let him go! We adapted his name slightly to Milton and had a dinner party in his honor where he was given many gifts and treats! Spoiled rotten. The dog outline I printed out to put on his cake…well, our cake. (He was treated to carrots and beans which he adored.)
