Hello everyone! I’m really excited about this:
There’s a new category on Thisblogisnotforyou.com: Dog DIYs!
There’ll be some really fun doggie-related projects coming up! We’ve got a new pup in our home right now and I’ve been busy making lots of cool things – toys, leashes etc.! If you’re not into dogs, don’t worry. Of course, there’ll be new fashion projects coming to the blog in no time!
Having a puppy in your home is an exciting time! There’ll be many new routines to get used to, a lot of work and worry, but also a lot of joy. And some time on your hands while you’re puppy sitting in the first days and weeks once your puppy is ready to come home with you. Time to sit on the couch, watch some Netflix and make some stuff! You’ll soon notice that toys are very useful things as they keep your puppy’s mind distracted from going after your carpet or favourite pair of shoes. And puppy goes through them in no time! Puppy teeth are very sharp but sensitive. You’ll need a lot of different toys of different textures, soft and hard ones, and of course toys that aren’t made with harmful chemicals or hard plastic which can break.
I tried a lot of different techniques to make some dog toys, leashes and treat bags for our puppy, while mainly recycling fabrics and materials I already had at home. These projects are perfect for recycling fabric scraps and your old pair of jeans.
If you’re curious about learning more, watch Dog DIYs. There’s more coming up soon! And check out my first project tutorial on making some eco-friendly, washable CHEW TOYS from fabric scraps (as shown above)!
Last but not least: Meet our adorable, crazy but super cute new puppy, Aslan! He’s 10 weeks now and we’re in love!
Have a great week!
Stay in touch!
