Pamper your pets with handmade, personalized collars and leashes, catnip toys and mini-quilts! Learn to make fun and useful products for your pups or cats from fabric that you design and print yourself, using your own images and designs, on your home inkjet printer. They also make great gifts for friends and family pets, or as donations for shelters.
I will have the hardware for safety-release cat collars, for buckle dog collars (small, medium and large), and for dog leashes, and catnip for handmade toys and catnip mats.
Using the same instructions, you can also make repurposed collars, leashes and other pet supplies using old garments or cloth.
This is a hands-on workshop. We’ll go step-by-step through the entire process of designing and printing the fabric, and sewing and assembling the pieces. I will give you clear, complete written instructions, so if we don’t finish each piece you can finish it easily at home. To make these at home you can hand-sew, but it is faster to make them with a sewing machine.
Sunday August 21, 2011, noon to 3:00 p.m., $40 plus materials. At the El Cerrito Canyon Trail Park Art Center.
Pre-registration is required, so I know what hardware and supplies to bring. If you have questions, or to register, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Can’t make the workshops? Prefer to learn at your own pace at home?
