Ain't nothin' but a hound dog...
...with a flower on her collar!
I experienced a fashion emergency this week: a trip to Vegas was approaching, and because Matilda always gets so much attention when she walks through a casino, I decided to add a pretty accessory to enhance her star quality.
I made the cute collar flower from two waiting-to-be-repurposed items I had been saving for just such an occasion. (Both from the dollar store. I am very predictable that way.)
I cut two flower shapes from the fleece glove, and two simple pieces from the metallic silver placemat:
I layered the four shapes, and sewed them onto the collar.
If you look at the finished fleur, you can see I also placed a tiny circle of fleece in the center - useful for preventing the thread from tearing through the plastic lace.
Crisis averted! Princess Matilda is ready to make her appearance in Vegas.
Or as I sometimes like to call her, Princess Di.
