Six for Saturday (or Sunday) - Fun with Fur Friends

Hello and welcome to your weekend!  Here are some great creative ideas, discoveries, links and likes to inspire your creativity, all in a cute and cuddly animal inspired DIY theme for your favourite furry friend.
  1. Craft a new toy for your favourite feline.  Try the BHG felt mice video tutorial (see the finished DIY in claw gnashing action here) or some dapper DIY menswear mice (Martha Stewart).  
  2. Pampered pets deserve posh accommodations. How about making an upcycled suitcase pet bed (Camille Styles) or a customised pillow pet bed (BHG)?
  3. DIY your way to your dog's heart. Bake up a batch of homemade peanut butter doggie biscuits (Pink Pistachio) with one of my own dog's favourite recipes (read more here) or upcycle tattered old t-shirts into a fabulous fun dog toy (Fabyoubliss).
  4. Honour your favourite fur-friend with a custom work of art.  Make your own DIY animal word art silhouette (Creativity Unmasked), a DIY pet portrait (A Beautiful Mess) or custom silhouette canvas (The Space In Between). 
  5. Head out for walkies in style.  Make your own DIY pet collar (b*spoke), upcycle an old belt into pet collar (Ready Made), or make a braided leather leash (Sketch 42).  
  6. Add some beautiful yet practical bling to your pet's "wardrobe" with a handcrafted pet tag (Eagle Rowe) and a cute collar carry-pouch (the b-line).
