I’m trying to vary what I make just to keep things even and fresh. So after last weeks kittens and a very cute fairy , I decided to make another puppy.
I’ve just sold Desmond the Basset Hound
to a lovely lady in Sugarland, Texas via my Folksy shop. It’s so exciting when people buy things; amazing the power of the Internet to make our huge globe so tiny! Well now I only have Boris the Bulldog
and Lottie the Labrador
and Dotty the Dalmation
left. I needed another puppy in my stock so I decided to make one of my favourite dogs: a Rottweiler.
Yes I know they have a bad reputation and can be terribly dangerous, but I firmly believe that dogs are as dangerous as their owners. I owned the most wonderful Labrador /Rotty cross a few years ago and he was a perfect dog. Sadly he had terrible epilepsy and we had to help him go to sleep after 9 fits in one evening took it out of him. He was only 3 years old. Sleep well Tiny dog.
So here is Roddy the Rottweiler Puppy. He is made from glossy black cotton yarn and rusty brown acrylic.
I think he’s a darling. He’s 9 inches high like all my other puppy collectibles and comes packaged in his own dinky white box.
All my collectibles cost £20 ( plus p+p) and would make a very special unique gift for someone who has everything.
Please note these creations are not sold as toys due to their handmade nature and are suitable for decoration purposes/ older children only.
