Friday Fun: DIY How To Wrap A Cat Or Dog

(Psssst, keep your eye out for coming information on how to enter the upcoming giveaways!)

Of course, PetProject does not recommend actually giving animals as gifts!  But, here’s a tutorial in case you need to know how to wrap one.

Here’s a demo of how to wrap a dog, sort of.  Gold star to mom for being so good about praising Rosco for doing what they asked!  We humans are a goofy lot, aren’t we?

DIY: Pet Portrait Christmas Stocking

This tutorial from Stephanie over at Multi-Tasking Mama shows you how to turn a photo of your pet into a felt portrait you can put on a stocking or just about anything else—pillow, bag, etc.  You will need some type of photo editor like Photoshop.  The rest of the materials are pretty simple and the instructions are detailed & easy to follow.  You’ll need:

  • plain Christmas stocking or material to make your own
  • photo of your pet
  • photo editing software (like Photoshop)
  • felt or other fabric (at least 3 colors for highlights, shadows, & midtones)
  • fabric glue
  • embroidery thread & needle
  • scissors/Exacto knife
  • straight pins
