Description

Some people own a dog, whilst others are owned by their dogs – but either way the relationship between each is unique and special. Dogs come into our lives, bringing with them a level of devotion never before experienced. They make us laugh at their antics and funny ways, and when they leave us after a life-too-short, they break our hearts and leave our homes empty and echoing. My Dearest Dog is a collection of stories, photographs and illustrations that will make you laugh and cry. The stories are based on real dogs, which have been lovingly recreated by Stephanie as handmade felt models. It's a book that will appeal to both creative felt-makers and dog lovers alike.

The author

Stephanie Cowburn – a qualified teacher, who has worked with primary school-aged children for over 25 years – has a serious passion for art and creativity. She taught herself how to make felt once her own children had started school, as she loves traditional crafts and enjoys learning new skills. Her attention to detail meant that she quickly developed her skills, and moved on to lifelike representations of animals, particularly dogs. Stephanie cares for four dogs who belong to other people, as well as her own beloved Border Terrier, Heidi, to whom she is devoted. All of the dogs she cares for are a constant source of inspiration and fun.

Make a Pet Bowl Holder Out of a Pallet
Let’s face it, dogs just aren’t tidy eaters. (Well, most aren’t, anyway.) During their happy eating bonanza, water is splashed and drooled onto the floor, bowls are scattered, and paws help spread the mess once the meal is done. Towels and mops are usually involved afterward. Chris Peterson shares a pet bowl holder project in ...
