Advent baggy for dogs

 

Our four-legged family members deserve a few extra treats during the Advent season. We do not own a dog but have friends who trust us with the care of their precious furry guys when they are out of town.Here’s a lovely idea for the furry guys.

Carlos and TJ are Chihuahua mixes. Both are rescues from Los Angeles and ended up in Vancouver with their loving forever parents.

Cut 24 rectangles of fleece 6.5″ by 4.75″ / 14″ x 12.5″ or whatever suits your fleece pattern best.

Download bone PDF, print out template and cut out felt bone.

The bag for Christmas Day is cut a bit larger.

Print the number tags, laminate if desired, cut them out and punch a hole in the tags.

Stitch a zig-zag along the top long side to protect it from fraying.

Sew the bone onto the front half.

Fold the fleece in half to 3.25″ x 4.75″ / 7″ x 12.5″.

Fold the ribbon in half and slide it between the layers with the fold on the inside of the bag. Secure with a needle.

Stitch along the 4.75″ / 12.5″ and then the bottom closing the bag. Turn the bag inside out.

Fill the bag with something sweet and tie it close.
