Doggie bag

Do you know the phrase doggie bag? A phrase used to imply a bag of leftover food to take home to give your dog instead of wasting the food in the bin. Well, Big Sis made a doggie bag of a different kind.

She drew up a design for a light over the shoulder bag to hold dog poo bags and training treats. When training a dog the reward has to be immediate and this leaves her hands free for other tasks like trying to get the lead back on or picking up the stick to throw again. 

I love that she can just use the machine on her own and knows some techniques without my prompt. I came back into the room and started to speak and she interrupted and said, "Yeeesss, I have snipped off the corners already!"

She made it brown so that Bloke could use it too. She had been saving the dog fabric which had come in a rag bag to us in February. The beads were in a giveaway parcel from CJ made so they have gone to good use already. I am not sure if Bloke has used it yet but it was a nice thought.


One very functional project. Thanks for stopping by.

PS. It always amazes me what you folks comment on, thank you for your lovely comments about the granny shawl. I posted it and thought it was a bit of a lame post and then you all loved it! It just shows we all blog for different reasons and we all have different likes and dislikes. Thanks again.

  1. How thoughtful of her! Her bag is amazing! I remember sewing in my mums machine and snapping at her because I knew how to do things! The weird thing is now she asks me!

  8. Big sis is your daughter, through and through! What a great idea, I want one of those. It is such a fun bag! have a similar handbag that I sometimes use for dog paraphernalia but it is a pain to switch between completely different purposes and embarrassing when I pull out a poo bag when I am looking for my vaseline... Happy days! x
