And Tatty Said 'Thank You'


Looking back at a 2013 make and Thatcher, Tatty to her friends, wanted to say 'thank you' to her doggie minder and groomer Vicki.


I found this dog fabric and knew with a little bit of fussy cutting it would be just perfect for a cushion.


even better that it has this black and white Havanese just like Tatty sitting up front in the doggie lineup.


I moved the doggie bones around to create top and bottom borders


and there's another line of bones hiding alongside the zipper under the collars and leads.


My mbCD label of course!


Lol, Tatty's embarrassed to remember how she looked when she was growing out her fringe!

    1. I know what you mean, the other night Tatty looked like she was the Princess and the Pea, one cushion is never enough - and the worst of it, our other pup likes to eat cushions, guess I'll just have to keep making more!!! :D
