Smart Dog Blanket Made from Scraps

Molly, our elderly Jack Russell cross is needing a nice new blanket and the weather has been too awful to do anything much outside so yesterday I sat down with some scraps I've saved and set about making something for her


I added a nice fleecy backing for extra comfort and warmth


I made some bias binding from a fat quarter (haven't managed to iron it yet because The Beast has had her beady spaniel eyes on the prize. I didn't dare add a hot iron to the mix until she was well out of the way)


What ya doin....?

Looks comfy...

I cut the festive snowflakes from some wool felt using a Brenda Walton die by Sizzix (I LOVE this die. It is SO beautiful).


We moved the blanket SEVERAL times for its own safety but Miss Luna was not going to be put off...

I'm waiting...

Stillllll waaaaiiiting.....

I'm just testing it to make sure it's okay...honest... I do think it might look better in MY bed though. This one is a bit small....

Pleased to report that Molly did eventually get the blanket to herself but I guess we all know who will be getting the next blanket don't we....


Still raining cats and dogs but at least it's a good excuse to stay inside and get crafty. Have a great Sunday everybody.
