latest sewing project



I am trying to potty train this new puppy and whenever she does pee outside, I want to give her a treat. So I made this "treat bag" with fabric samples from Kamakura. It is hanging by the sliding door to the backyard where I like to think the dogs will be going pee at some point. The back has poodles; the front is a cream colored linen that I embroidered these little pictures from a pattern. The grommet punch thing came from my neighbor, who has now convinced me that I need one. Japanese embroidery books really take the cake with how sweet the little pictures are. I am starting a small collection of Japanese embroidery and cross stitch books.
