So, we’re a little overly excited for today. Guess why? We’re thrilled that one of our very own Sniff Design and award winning client’s (WildWash All Natural Pet Shampoo – located in London, UK), has a new blog post sharing one of the best freebies we’ve seen in quite some time. Visit their blog to see and download this set of beautiful and custom illustrated desktop backgrounds; all for free. Or, you can do it here. (hee!) Oh! And please feel free to share or pin them too.
This is going to be a bragasaurus type post for our blog today. You see, one of our own clients WildWash has posted an irresistible video of Pepper, a French Bulldog puppy getting her very 1st bath. Cue in the ‘oooos’ and ‘eeeeeee’! There is nothing like watching a little pup getting bathed while listing to a sweet and cheery song in the background, to cast a smile on one’s heart. So, without fur ado meet Pepper!
It’s Friday Freebie time! Here is a perfect fall project to create something soft and warm for your sweet pet. You’ll have a chance to make something really nice with just a couple of tools and your pet will have its own, special custom-made place.
For detailed steps, see below. This neat find was originally found via the Handi Mania post. You will need little sewing skills. But don’t be a fraidy cat, it shouldn’t scare you off though because it involves just a basic stitch that will be hidden underneath the main part of the bed. This project looks so cute, that we are going to give it a try and see if we can make one for our own in-house dachshunds, Mina & Max.
Have great fun and make your pet the happiest one.
TOOLS: • Scissors • Thread and some yarn • Thick sewing needle • Meter • Pins (optional chalk and ruler) • Used hoodie • Acrylic blanket or pieces of cloth • Cushion filling or a pillow • A flap ( for closing the sleeves)
1. Prepare all tools and supplies on the floor or table.
Turn your sweatshirt inside out. Gather the edges of the collar and sew them with a thread or use a sewing machine if you want it faster. Leave a small piece open.
Stretch the hoodie with pins and mark a straight line from one armpit to the other. If you prefer, use a ruler and chalk to mark on the fabric. Sew, joining the front and back of the grid, following the path. Remove the pins.
2. Turn your sweatshirt inside out.
Gather the edges of the collar and sew them with a thread or use a sewing machine if you want it faster. Leave a small piece open.
3. Stretch the hoodie with pins and mark a straight line from one armpit to the other.
If you prefer, use a ruler and chalk to mark on the fabric. Sew, joining the front and back of the grid, following the path. Remove the pins.
4. Put the sleeves along the body of the sweatshirt.
Now pin to the sides (as shown in the picture). Leave the cuffs without sewing them.
5. Insert acrylic blanket, foam, or even chopped leftover fabrics through the cuffs to form the edges of the bed.
6. Fill the belly of the blouse with cushion stuffing or a pillow.
7. Join the cuffs sewing them together. You can also use the sewing machine if you like.
8. Take one piece of other fabric and put it around the cuffs.
This is so that it will cover the sewed part. Sew it with a regular stitch and turn it inwards.
Now call your dog to enjoy his new and sweet cozy bed. Don’t forget to post a pic showing off her or her new pet bed. And if you like, tag Sniff Design Studio on Instagram or Facebook to show off your ‘furbulous’ new creation.
Sniff ya later! ?
