A Peter Pan collar, a dog collar, and a football game

Last weekend I was in the mood for some instant gratification projects, so I took some time off from working on my clothing projects and made myself and Frankie some collars.

I made my dog Frankie this bandana/outfit to wear to tomorrow's Alzheimer's Walk. The color that everyone will wear is purple and I didn't want my pup to be left out. This is my last time begging you to donate, I promise :)

A while back I was lurking around on the Colette Patterns blog and found this tutorial for a Peter Pan collar. I used the free download as a template, but instead of using the ropes I used a hook and eye for closure. This project was so quick and easy, it didn't take long to make at all and now I have a cute new accessory for my high neck tops.

 On a random note, have you guys noticed how much I love this animal print? I feel like I have a never ending supply of it. Years ago Luke and I had a futon and covered it in this fabric. Shortly after we bought a couch and didn't have use for the futon cover. I saved the fabric (I didn't even sew at that point, so smart move for me!) and have been using it for various projects ever since. We reupholstered our chairs in it too!

The next day I got to wear my collar when we went to San Francisco :)

One of the things I love most about where I live is the location. We are 4 hours south of San Francisco and a little over 3 hours north of Los Angeles. We love going to sporting events and when customers give us tickets to football games we don't turn them down!

Happy weekend!
