I finished another sewing project! This one was rather intimidating as it required me to come up with my own pattern and do my own measurements. Luckily I convinced myself I needed a rotary cutter and, WOW, did it help! Made cutting so much easier, quicker and more precise.
Anywho, here is the finished results! And, yes, they are dog crate covers! :) Our pups sleep in our bedroom (one raises a ruckus literally ALL night long if she isn't in the same room as us) - and for the longest time we've dealt with the beauty a black metal wire crate brings to the essence of our master bedroom.
I've been wanting those nice wooden crates that look like furniture - but when hubby got me my sewing machine my mind starting working - huh, I wonder...and wallah! The dog crate cover idea was born.
First I made fleece slip covers for their mats (old yoga mats I had cut up for the bottom of their crates - in hideous purple and blue). Then the covers for the crate - and it looks marvelous! There is even a front flap that can be pinned up for everyday use to open and close the door and unpinned to further conceal the crate when guests are over!
Also tired a different cookie recipe this weekend much to Matt's delight - Soft & Chew Peanut Butter cookies - we used up the Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter we've had for ages (it sounded good but wasn't really practical - EXCEPT in these cookies!) - and added an extra 1/2 a cup of regular crunchy peanut butter and lo and behold we now have 4 dozen cookies...a little much for 2 people SO I am sure that friends and coworkers will be receiving end of some cookies soon!
