The force was strong this Halloween

Published by under Cosplay,Dog

This year for Halloween we went full Star Wars. Minnie was Princess Leia and Max was Obi-Wan (at least that’s who I based his jedi robes off of. They were a little less than cooperative with the modeling this year than last year, but I think we still managed to get some decent photos. I […]

Happy Halloween from Robin Hood and Maid Marian!

Published by under Cosplay,Dog,Sewing

Are these not the most adorable Robin Hood and Maid Marian you’ve ever seen?? This is actually their costume from last year, but since I never had a chance to post it, I figured this Halloween is as good as any :). In case you can’t tell, they’re supposed to be Robin Hood and Maid […]

Couch Cover With A Dog Picture

Published by under Dog,Sewing

So this is partly a gratuitous photo of my dog. But there is actually some sewing in it as well. You may notice that there appears to be a cover on the arm of the couch. You would be correct. Minnie usually spends the day looking out that window. Whenever someone walks by she feels […]

A dog bed fit for a queen

Published by under Dog,Sewing

Back in college, my mom and I made the duvet cover below. This was thick upholstery fabric. It didn’t really fit in my dorm room, but it was so regal looking. I felt like Shirley Temple in The Little Princess after the guy brings her that plush comforter. Not that my dorm room was nearly […]

Happy Halloween!

Published by under Dog

This year for Halloween, Minnie was a witch. It was a quick costume I tossed together in about 3 hours including the time it took to go to the store and buy the fabric. About 2 hours of that was real sewing. She really looked quite adorable in it despite the fact that she really […]

Mini Leash for Minnie

Published by under Dog,Sewing

Our trainer has told us to always have a small handle to grab on Minnie’s collar so that we can correct her if she barks, jumps, etc. Any behavior she’s not supposed to do. I could just tie a piece of fabric to it, but that’s not me. So I made a mini leash which […]

Food Friday: Kale Chips

Published by under Cooking,Dog,Recipes

I found out about kale chips from Diana at The Chic Life. The first time she posted about them as a side dish and when she came to visit San Francisco, I asked her for the recipe. She gave me the basics: spritz some olive oil, salt and pepper and bake til crispy. Since then […]

Happy Hannukah: Day 3

Published by under Dog,Sewing

Try as I might, life gets in the way and I wasn’t able to post every day. But life is good, so here are my catch up posts. 🙂 This is Minnie’s Hannukah outfit. She wore it at the Hannukah party we had (where she was SO well behaved!) and was just the belle of […]

Dog Collar Pattern Review

Published by under Dog,Sewing

So I entered my LED collar in a sewing contest on Pattern Review. My first entry into one of their contests. I wish I had made my dog bed just 2 weeks later because the contest is for sewing for your pet and the bed came out really awesome. But it has to be items […]

LED Dog Collar

Published by under Crafts,Dog,Sewing

I’ve been meaning to make something with LEDs for a while. I finally got around to doing it. I decided to make a dog collar. It was a good first project with LEDs because it’s fairly simple as they go, and it’s pretty cool because now I can see her in the backyard at night. […]
