For all you dog lovers, here’s my latest Craftsy Pattern.
I had been working on designing a dog treat bag pattern that hooked onto a leash. I thought it was a good idea, but then I got a BETTER idea, which was to incorporate the Poop Bags into the design.
I also decided to include how to make a dog leash and came up with the Dog Leash and Treat Bag with Poop Bag Dispenser Pattern
The Dog Leash is super easy to make and fun to coordinate with the Treat Bag fabric.
The Treat Bag is, well, kinda neat and very practical! It’s easy to make and easy to use. Just place a Poop Bag roll into the bag lining and push the end through the bottom opening. Close the lining and fill the top with dog treats…or people treats…or personal items such as keys, ID and some money. Then simply attach it onto the dog leash with the swivel hook.
I was dog-sitting our grandpuppie, Cubby, when I thought I would make him some of my dog treats. We always give him treats and he expects them whenever he stays with us. Cubby really likes my homemade treats and they costs pennies to make.
1 cup wheat flour
1/4 cup oats
3 tablespoons olive oil
1/3 cup beef broth (add 1/2 teaspoon beef bouillon to water)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with non-stick foil or parchment paper.
Mix all ingredients in a glass bowl thoroughly. Roll out 1/4” thick and cutout shapes using cookie cutters or a knife.
Bake for 30 – 35 minutes or until lightly brown, turning halfway through.
Remove treats to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely. Store in a ziplock bag or airtight container. This made 16 – 3 1/2” treats. I give him half of one, so I actually get 32 treats from this recipe.
Bacon: Use bacon drippings instead of oil.
Peanut Butter: Use peanut butter instead of oil, and plain water.
Chicken: Use chicken bouillon instead of beef.
See, I told you Cubby liked them!
A bag of these dog treats would make a nice stocking stuffer…Christmas is just around the corner…ugh!
