black curly boy dog

I find it incredibly difficult to get a decent photo of a black fabric piece. These are the best I could do. He is a lot cuter in real life.

This photo shows him best-

Here are 2 over-exposed photos that show the details of his face.

so many doggies!

I haven’t made any dogs in a long time. I just checked and the last batch was June 2014. Well, the dogs are back and there is a big pile in progress on my table.

This is why- When I went out to San Francisco in 2013 for Renegade Craft, I brought dogs and I sold every single one. So, before I went out again in 2014, I thought I better make a whole lot more. I started cutting. And I cut out white dogs, yellow dogs, beige dogs, black dogs, grey dogs, orange dogs… I just kept thinking, what about this other color or texture or combination. It looks like I sewed up about 10 to take to SF. And, you guessed it, not a single one sold. So all those cut-out dogs just sat in their bin while I worked on other things. I have finally pulled them all out, done an inventory, cut out additional pieces as needed and have sewed them up- There were 24 more! I am picking out some to finish up now and hopefully the rest won’t have to wait TOO long to have their turn.

This fellow is made of all reclaimed knit wool sweaters.

And, side note, lots of things coming up in the garden. Spring is really here!
