Amber's Crafts & Stuff #10 Cats & Dogs.

This week Amber has asked us to make something with our Furry Friends in mind. I crocheted this fish toy  for my daughters cat. She hasn't been well enough to have him in her room for a cuddle for quite some time and they miss each other. If he finds an item of her clothing in the laundry (if I leave it unguarded after sorting to wash lol) he will drag it out and lie on it. Before we gave this to him, she cuddled it to get her scent on it for him. 

It's originally an idea I had for a soap saver for my grandson - I left this one open too so I can stuff it with cat nip (when it arrives through the post). At the moment it has a little bag of wadding inside a lovely noisy scrunchie celophane bag - another thing he delights in. 

Here's a few pix of him 'delighting' in his new toy. Taken with my phone so not usual lol.

So the idea is to make anything you like with your furbaby in mind...scrapbook page, toy, or whatever you like with a dog or cat image on it somewhere, then pop over to join in the challenge here. You'll find more inspiration from the rest of this weeks design team. 

Some challenges I hope will accept me. ..

This is so sweet. My dog, Oliver takes his toys and lays his head on them. He's very protective of them, even though he does like me to throw them for him to retrieve at times. You did an excellent job on this fish. Love the colors. Tell your daughter hello for. My love to you and your daughter. Hugs, dj

This is so sweet. It must be so hard on your daughter not to get to be with her kitty and equally hard on the kitty. My dog whines outside my door if I am in there and he can't come in.
