I have been designing up some animal rescue shirts as well as some cute dog graphics that I created of my sweet pets. Need to get one of my Tripod Kitty and the head shot of my Finnie boy! I market and sell them on my Zazzle page. I give 100% of my proceeds to local animal shelters. Lots of sweet little animals in need and looking for homes! Help out if you can by adopting or fostering an animal!!!

I added recently my gimpypets.com T-Shirt design. I will create some different ones but started with this to promote my gimpypets.com site!!!!

Check them out!!! 🙂

I just finished this Project bag sample for my Sewing Pattern cover. Now that I have this one done and my Indie Shopper bag sample completed. It’s time to have them professionally photographed by my sister Janet Allinger. She is a graphic designer who actually created the cat head on this fabric. It’s her Devon Rex cat named Rozwell! I used it  and added the cat paws. We are going to try and get Rozwell to pose in the photo for the my sewing pattern cover. Janet’s other cat George is on the cover of my Knitting Tote Sewing Pattern. He just could not stay away. He is a very curious George! 😉

This is my Indie Shopper tote bag in the fabric I designed of my dog Detective Tinkerton! One yard of either heavy weight cotton canvas or the linen canvas of this Spoonflower fabric  is all you need for the exterior material. Then just 3/4 yard of what ever you would like for the inside. I used a heavy weighted poly denier. Or you can use a cordura fabric.

Choose Detective Tinkerton fabric or pick from my other designs!

Sewing up bags for School!

crafts, creative, Design, DIY, papillon, sewing, sewing patterns

School is going to start soon so why not make your student a bag for school! My Cruzers are great backpacks as well as my Mack Messenger bag.  My totes are always great to for lunch items or for gym shoes, ballet slippers, etc…………….

SO ladies, get out your sewing machines and pick a sewing pattern  to make!! 🙂

Get creative and crazy by mixing and matching fabrics, use some cool vintage materials or cut up an old coat that you no longer wear. Another idea is if you have old table clothes that have some stains in them, you can cut out the good parts and use that material for your inside of your bag! IDEAS are enless!!

Sew on!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
