So I have been making and selling these Pet recovery collars for awhile now and happy that post surgery/injured pets can be stylish in one of my collars than those boring plastic or balloon style collars. I make them with a bit for real estate on the back area to be able to fold down when your pet is eating.

These are mainly for cats. But some small dogs have benefited from them.

Still time to get crafty before Christmas!

Are you still looking for ideas for gifts? Are you crafty? Can you Sew?

Well homemade gifts are always fun for me! I like to make simple gifts for friends, neighbors, postman, favorite shop owners, etc……………
Something like a nice Santa or Snowman adorned cookie bag, stocking or handpainted tin or a box and fill with your favorite cookies.

Simple gifts that can be used every day like soaps, oven mitts, knitted caps are always a daily reminder to the gift receiver of how wonderful you are! 😉

Most of my Mackerilla sewing patterns are pretty easy to make. So you could make up some wine totes and journal bags? Or make up some of my Tote styles and give them to your people on your holiday list. Their is still lots of time to make these items and more! 🙂

For other Mackerilla Bag designs, check out my ETSY page for what Sewing Patterns are available! Also I have some of my little zip pouches , kids caps and more up for sale!

Also you can contact me and see what else I have. I have loads of totes in many sizes available that I have not posted online. Price ranging from $34-$58

Why buy some pre quilted cotton fabric when you can make your own!

I have a bunch of fat quarters just waiting to be made into some bags! Too light and soft for exteriors of the bags so I slapped on some batting to the backside and quilted a diamond pattern on top! Then created some cute little zip pouches! Fun, fun, fun!

New Fabric Available!
