Helpin the small furry ones!

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.

Creating more today and tomorrow out of vintage and new fabrics from my stash pile!

A few are available on my ETSY page here now and will be adding in more………………

WOW!!!!

I can’t believe that it’s 2014 already! Even though the time flew last year, I am excited about what’s to come of 2014 for me. I am changing my business name to Janice Serilla Design. My brands will be of course Mackerilla for my Mackerilla brand sewing patterns and bags. Santa Cruz Bagworks for my new high end bag designs. Still in the works but I do have my SCBW large tote available.

Next is Gimpy Pets of course with all my pet related products. I will be hopefully a vendor in the upcoming Spring Dog event. I donate a percentage of my sales to senior and disabled pets in need.

Then last is Hannula & Dest. My collaberation with Debbie Graves Design. We have our cool apron designs and upcycled homeware items.
