I Didn't Get Dressed Today

Before you think of me as a lazy slob today, I'll show you what I did instead. I was just too busy to get dressed! By the time I took a break, it was almost time to get my jammies on again.

I constructed 4 dog vests today. I still need to addt he velcro closures but am waiting until I have all the vests done so that I can place the velcro to create different sizes. The top two vests are smaller and made from a beatiful fish print (I wish you could see the real color) and one of a pasta fabric. I thought novelty fabric would be eye catching at the fund raiser.
The next two are black backgrounds - one with golf equipment and one with Jelly Bellys. How fun is that? Black background, black thread, and black velcro makes for a challenge at times. I have 3 or 4 more vests to do. I will show them later. (I made more than needed for the fundraiser so she could choose the best ones).

Then, when I got my fill of sewing, I started the photo editing and transfer for future quilt blocks. The one above is my Daisey. She's so sweet!

This is a dog being publicized through Ratbone. His name is Smokey. I thought he was quite handsome.

Finally this is Teddy. How sweet is that face? Poor fella probably didn't expect to find himself homeless.

I love the photo-transfers. How do you do that?

I tinted and turned the photos into sketches through Photoshop Express online. Then I printed them on special photo transfer paper which you then iron onto fabric. If you try it, don't forget anything you transfer will be a mirror image so you want to flip it before you print it out.
