Puppy Black Tie



Every handsome male needs a black tie for New Years. I made this one from pure silk; the collar has two layers of interfacing in it and a long Velcro closure so it fits next year. The silk was on sale at Jo Ann's Fabrics; $4.50 for 1/4 yd., but all else for the three holiday collars I made were scraps etc., I had around the house.

Happy New Year to all!

Another Collar


Anders Christmas collar was such a success, I decided to make one for New Year's too, and here it is just waiting for the next fun holiday.



The Velcro is about three inches to overlap and fasten. This collar also has bells because a jingling puppy is easier to keep track of and out of mischief with so much excitement everywhere!

Merry Christmas


While Bill went to Old Farm to finish the upstairs knee walls before Christmas, I stayed behind with Anders getting ready for our holiday here in Hopewell, which included sewing his Christmas collar. There are enough jingle bells on it to keep track of just where he is snooping.
