Crafting Gone to the Dogs

I got a little bit of crafting done this week while I was escorting Jacob to the Atlanta Pet Fair. This year, there was a shoe decorating contest, so Jacob entered me in the contest and purchased some knee-high canvas boots to decorate. Clara worked diligently to get some of Jacob’s artwork sized appropriately and printed on paper-backed fabric. And all I had to do was get some fusible web to attach the little canines to the canvas.

And I added some ribbon to the lacing.

I got to model them for the contest.

So I made an attempt at pulling together a coordinating outfit by similarly decorating a white denim vest I got at Goodwill.

I didn’t win anything, but I had fun and, hopefully, gave Jacob’s artwork some more exposure. Plus, I really enjoyed working with the images printed on fabric. My brain is spinning with potential projects involving that technique.
