The dogs were really into it :).
After a very long time of planning this, I have finally started to learn how to sew. This is the first thing I’ve done, a shirt in a funny cats in outer space print, using a simple Burda magazine pattern. I was really motivated by the fabric (that I have found in a fabric outlet store), otherwise I would have probably just stopped after making several mistakes and having to rip out the thread for at least five or six times. I found especially difficult to finish the neckline hem and in the end it didn’t come out perfectly, but it is totally wearable.
It was really funny to wear this top in school. Several kids stopped me on the hallways to compliment it or to ask from where did I bought it. I could proudly say : “I made it myself.” 🙂
I have started stitching this using a big embroidery hook I have received as a gift recently. I plan on learning different embroidery stitches on this big canvas, but for now I just write a list of things our dogs love. It’s very relaxing to stitch these funny, happy thoughts in the anxious evenings when I’m too tired for anything else.
I really like these photos of Souris. I also want to take more portraits of our black dog Lulu. She is so difficult to take photos of. Not only that it is difficult to get her black and spotty face in focus, but she also turns her back to the camera quite often.
Souris is quite photogenic.
In her new, handmade pajamas. Her fur is very thin and she is cold all the time, so she really needs to be dressed, even inside.
