Arrf Arrf

Look who come home from Michael's with me.

I know that it's not the best time to get a new pet while we are trying to build a house.

Could you resist this face?

She is very nicely detailed and a very good scale for Jaynie and she was only $3.99.

Now I need to name her and make doggie supplies.   Do you have an idea for a name?

Here are a few things that I bought last weekend.   The little nano scrap books, 2 in a pack with a pen with a little magnifying glass for just a dollar.  I only bought one and I don't know why.  I was probably too tired to make good decisions or hungry and thinking more of food than what I was buying.  

This strange looking yarn is called 'bunny tails' and it is very soft with equally spaced puffs on a cord.  I had an idea as soon as I saw it, so I had to buy some.  Do you have any ideas for using it?

Here is what I did

Fluffy slippers and a duster.  I thought of the duster after I made the slipper, it doesn't show well in the photo but that puff is green, yellow and white.  I had a toothpick with glue on one end and a tri-colored puff = easy duster.

The slippers are 1" long, Jaynie has big feet.  I used scraps of cardstock, fabric and thin fun foam with the puffs cut with some cord left on each side. 

I hope that you are having a nice weekend.

Thank you for visiting, Mary

    1. Maria, I'm thinking of naming her Daisy. Your very welcome, they were very easy and use very little materials if you can get the 'bunny tail' yarn.

  5. What a wonderful idea with those slippers! And the dog is so lovely :)
