yes becky, there is a craft for paws

if you don't believe me, check out this book...(i know becky will love the cover!) the author included optional instructions on how to blend in your's pooch's hair with wool to make an adorable little needlefelted dog. in fact, she made a pair of corgi's for the queen of england using her royal doggy locks.
needlefelting is really fun and pretty easy, it's like painting and sculpting with loose bits of wool and a pokey needle, although i haven't tried making these puppies yet.

anyway, think twice before tossing out that pet hair on the bottom of your swiffer—one girl's dirt might be a queen's treasure!

  1. You are so right, Lisa. I am beginning to think there is a future for me in crafts after all. I am going to modify this idea and make Schnauzers out of dryer lint and sink trappings -- I have lots of those materials and I am always in a quandry about what to do with them. By the way, the little guy on the cover sure looks like Barbel!


Thanks so much for visiting my blog - I look forward to visiting yours, too!
