The doily dog sweater!

100_1526, originally uploaded by picable.

As promised, this is the completed crocheted doily made into a dog sweater. It ties at the neck and under the belly.

The neck ties each have a flower sewed to the end. (Love those details).

If you can make a doily, attach ties for the neck and belly, you have a dog outfit.

Pretty, isn't she?

What do you do with them all?

What do you do with all the little amigarumi's in your life? I'm turning some of them into keychains. No sense letting such cuties go in the bottom of a toybox only to be forgotten. I decided to put them to good use instead.

You're kidding me!

This is a dog sweater in the making. Yes, I know it looks more like a doily right now, but wait for it and you'll see it on my dog.

I'm always amazed at what you can do with a little bit of yarn and a crochet hook.

Snow? Outside my window?!

Now ain't this something. It's snowing outside. Yesterday, it was almost warm enough to wear shorts.

This is the second time it snowed here in March, as far as I can remember. But snow is rare here, and it usally melts as quick as it hits the ground.

I'm going to have to take my dog out to see this. It's her first snowfall.
Oh! and call someone up to talk about the snow because its so weird to have it outside my window.

Clover the Bear is born!

Is she cute, or what? She is wearing a 4 leaf clover on her ear. It looks like she had a good time getting it on there.

This little crocheted bear makes you grin out loud.

She measures in at 4 1/2 inches tall. Toes are thread sculpted.
