Dogwear, Kitty Tents, and Dog toys

Amber's puppy is modeling dogwear made by Mary and Brenda.  He won the cutest pet contest at the recent Pumpkinfest and it's easy to see why...he's adorable!  We've got many styles and colours of dog coats.

 Amber's cat is enjoying her new kitty tent. The tents come in many colours and patterns.
Here are some fun stuffed dog toys made by Amber.  The crafters make a variety of cat and dog toys.

This is Angus.  He can twist himself into some crazy positions.

Sweet Sisi is trying out a kitty cuddler that Elaine knitted.

Getting ready for the Battersea Pumpkinfest Oct16th 2010

We'll be selling our crafts at the Battersea Pumpkin fest in the Kingston Humane Society tent.

Here are a few of the little halloween knits I've been working on.

There's no catnip in these little felted pumpkins, they are just ornamental.  However, cats love little rolly things and the smell of natural fibers so they could be used as cat toys.
Made from 100% real wool these are about 1" tall.

A gaggle of little ghosties.  These are catnip filled and on "fishing rods".  The eyes are firmly attached.

This little black felted kitty has glow in the dark whiskers.  As you can see she's very friendly, always offering a paw.

Jack is catnip filled
Felted witches hat is a about 2" tall and filled with catnip

Miniature traffic cone is about 2" tall and catnip filled. 

 All of these little things are fun to make, but often time consuming and labour intensive.  I only wish I had time to produce more!  I'd be happy to  share the patterns for these with any knitters willing to make more for our craft table.

Sneak peak at my little knits

I like to knit tiny things.  The cuter the better.  Here are a few of the little knits I've been working on....

Felted finger puppies have been very popular - I can't make them fast enough!

Harvest time is here...and so are my tiny carrots.  About 4" long, just the size of a cats foot.

Spooky bloodshot eyeballs with attached optic nerve.  Just in time for Halloween.

L'il owlets are about 2" tall and make great cat toys.

Whoo Knoo?

Thinking ahead to Christmas, I'm knitting up a few of these cute little fellows.  About 1 1/2" tall.
