This year my job was to make the grandkids Halloween baskets to go with their Zoo Animal theme.  Their mom, Katie, is making all the Halloween costumes…boy is she doing an awesome job!  I can’t wait to show them to you.

This Rhino trick or treat basket is for Caden.  He’s the first one I made and I was very happy with the results.  I kinda just winged it.  The head is a template I found online and increased the size.

This Crocodile trick or treat basket is for Kylan.  He too is made from felt with rick rack teeth and scales down his tail.  He is made from a sewing pattern I downloaded and adjusted for the basket.

Lastly, this Flamingo trick or treat basket is for Kinzley.  It’s perfect because she just LOVES pink and I found out that her Halloween costume has no pink at all!  Like the other baskets, this one is made from felt.  I made all pattern pieces.

I also made the Giraffe, Hippo and Moose heads (shown above) to decorate their camper/campsite.  I had the felt and just couldn’t help myself!

Hope you all have a very Happy Halloween!

 

My Dog Leash and Treat Bag with Poop Bag Dispenser

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.
