So, I couldn’t resist. I just couldn’t. I have to show you photos of Otto, our ten week old Golden Retriever puppy, although I have combined the photos with a bit of sewing – kind of.
We collected him three weeks ago and the first week was a complete nightmare as he was really sick – let’s just say we may need to replace our carpet. No, seriously. However, he is completely better now and as cute as a button, but as naughty as can be!
I want to make him lots of things, but at this age, you just know that everything will be eaten in no time at all. However, I am going to make him a cushion and a bed. I bought a maternity ‘V’ shaped cushion as I thought this was the perfect shape so he could nestle into the middle of it (he loves to nestle). The pillow itself was very cheap and comes with its own slip, which can be used as a pattern. I had some beautiful wool (far too nice for a dog) that I decided to use (because I’m a sucker for a puppy).
Next on the list is a dog bed, which will be another excuse for more photos. Sorry!
