Crafty Poodle

First Up-Welcome To Our New Home. I decided it was time to break Poodle Time away from The Journal. Now I can concentrate more on what makes us and our our dogs safe and happy. And, of course, I will keep up the cultural side. I am sure I am not alone in believing that dogs are very important to our culture and makes us better persons.

Each week I will print one new article and reissue one older one.

Today starts a two part feature about sewing things with Poodle motifs. Next week I will talk about a few things I have made for my dogs along with some ideas I want to try. 

Gina the Poodle from ETSY

Gina from Springtime Designs (ETSY)

I have had Gina on my ETSY favorite list for a long time and was  looking forward to  making her. Unfortunately, I just noticed that the shop owner is on vacation. There was a "send me an email" option to be notified when the shop is back opened. I will keep you posted, if anyone else, like me fell for Gina. 

Best Buds
Sundrop Designs has created some cute 8" block patterns. This one caught my eye. We have both dogs and cats and some interesting situations can happen.

My Gift To You

Here are a couple of silhouettes for you to use. One has a Puppy cut and the other a Lion cut. The links will take you to larger copies. They should be easy to enlarge.
