My, What a Fancy Dog You Have! PART 2

After thinking about it all morning and telling my mom about my morning craft project I decided to make her almost 1 year old Black Lab mix a couple of bright, beautiful bow-ties for my mom's upcoming wedding. I tried to pick colors that will really pop against his jet black fur! I don't think we will be able to have Moejoe (her dog) at the ceremony, but I really want to do engagement pictures/wedding pictures with all three of them (not in her white dress with a long-haired black dog though!) and put the bow-tie on MoeJoe to "up" the festivities. I will definitely post pictures of MoeJoe in his bow-tie as soon as I get them. :)

My, What a Fancy Dog You Have!

I bought some amazing fabrics and set out to make some cute bow-tie dog collars for my dad's Jack Russell Terrier. This is meant to be a total gag gift/surprisingly awesome gift. I truly think my dad will use these bow-ties and the dog will look awesome.  I made the colorful, double-sided Dia de los Muertos bow-tie for more festive events, the hipster, flannel bow-tie for regular days, and the nautical-themed bow-tie for the summer... ;) They were super easy to make and I just bought a size small red collar from PetSmart.   I  used a snap to snap them onto the collar, which allows the bow-ties to be easily interchangeable!

I will probably start selling some of these on my Etsy store - MyVintageBird
