If you're anything like me, your dog is pretty much the center of your universe. We spoil our little Sam (left) in every way possible. That's why when Claudia (Mirrix's President) came up with a fiber and bead dog collar, I was thrilled. Doesn't he look cute?
The fact is, pretty much any dog can rock this collar. It's the PERFECT holiday gift for a dog-loving friend or for your own special pup.
Recently we did a weave-along featuring this collar and it resulted in some very happy puppies. Here (below) are two gorgeous collars that weave-along participant Denise Jonon made for her dogs Fig and Walnut. She did an amazing job and I think her pups might just have a career in modeling!
It's not only your favorite human who deserves some Weaving Bling. Just think how beautiful your four legged family member will look in a collar adorned by a strip of tapestry/bead weaving woven from your favorite fiber and Delica beads. I decide it was time to turn my weaving skills to the shorter family member in my life. I know Sam, the ultimate fashionista, will proudly wear the collar I have made for this weave-along. It's in the mail! He will rip the package open and cry until Elena puts it on him. And trust me, Elena will take a video and share the moment with you.
If you're anything like me, you want your dog to have the best of everything; the most nutritious food, the perfect bed and of course the prettiest collar. For most of my dog Sam's life we've used a harness instead of a collar, but his new trainer encouraged us to switch to a collar because harnesses can encourage leash pulling for a extra-energetic dogs like him. I checked out the pet store selection of collars and was pretty sure that we could come up with something much cooler than what is available commercially for my fashionable little canine.
