Made It Myself Monday: Dog's Got Stuff

Okay... We are back in school. They just left.
I am alone with the pets and the housework and the internets for 7 straight hours.
I feel like the world is my playpen.


So on that note: Let's talk toys. This is a little fellow I started on our summer excursion and finished after we got home.

Meet Augie the Doggie, Boston Terrier.





Augie has a leather collar and personalized dog tag, a leash, bowl, bone, tufted bed, and a sweater. Not bad for a guy with is only 4 inches tall.



I really love making toys. And more than making toys, I love a play set. I want everything to have all it's accessories. I don't even have a really plan for Augie. I just made him because I really wanted to. Sometimes I just spoil myself that way.

How cute! Have you heard about Softies for Mirabel? A great chance to keep making the little guys with accessories, and give them good homes.

Mary Ellen said...

He's a real sweetie. I really admire this kind of project - loads harder than a big softie because ther's no room for error.

That is the cutest thing I have seen in forever. I used to go crazy over Muffy Bear because of all the clothes and accessories. So sweet! P.

Well he's just effing adorable. I don't really like toys for myself. However, among my most treasured belongings? My smoking deer (for which I still owe you a swap) and the Easter egg headless bunny that Alice made for Max. So there you go.

Accessories make everything!

Delurking to gush. It has to be done.

Auggie is quite the lucky doggie. With all his stuff--he's ready to take on the world!

I think it's the sweater that really kills me.

Adorable. Just adorable.

7 fun-filled hours. Ooooooooooh the possibilities.

Nancy said...

and you spoil us by showing us this cuteness! good heavens, woman.

Frizz said...

omg- too cute! How long does something like that take you to make?

Bitterbetty said...

The doggie itself took a few evenings (so 4-6 hours?)
and the gear I just did here and there... so a couple hours more, maybe.

Mary-Laure said...

Auggie is almost as fab as Benjy! And THAT means something...
What's his backstory?
