I Have a New Grandpuppy!!

 

 

 

 


My eldest daughter and her boyfriend have a new 'baby'...

...a silver labrador puppy named Mason!

What a sturdy little guy he is...

...and what big paws he has!!!

Now you know why we ordered the biggest dog bed that L L Bean carries!!

I wanted to make something handmade for him, as well...

...so I felted him a toy bone.

It's too big to fit in his mouth, now, of course...

...but I think, before too long, it will be just the right size!!

I made a resist using foam floor underlayment...

...and covered it with tufts of yellow and bright green wool.

I used grey pencil roving to write his name...

...and after felting and drying, patched the opening by sewing in a piece of orange felt from a previous project.

As you can see, my daughter is in love with this little guy...

...and it gives me a glimpse of the loving and wonderful mother she will be when she has 'real' babies!!

Adorable Pup! The pillow is also adorable. I like how you added the writing using pencil roving. I'm afraid if I ever tried that, it would not resemble any word after I finished felting! :)

P.S Not many doggies could say they have a handfelted bone either - gorgeous :) xx

What a gorgoeus puppy! Can see how much your daughter loves him. Am sure she will be loving mum and you are a wonderful examply to her too.

You know I love doggies. I have never seen a silver Lab before. He is going to grow up to be a very big boy!

Mason is adorable, and it's obvious that Sarah is very happy with him. Since I have had a Labrador in the past, I know all too well how fast they grow into those "big paws." He will have no problem picking up his felted bone that his Grandmammy made for him. What a spoiled pup he is, already! :)
