Every morning, as my Aunt walks her dog, she bumps into friends and their dogs and will (with the owners permission) give the dog a biscuit. The dogs are not daft and they know what’s coming and, more often than not, will sit in anticipation of this treat.
Unfortunately the wee bag she had been using has been lost, so when we visited she was reduced to using a plastic bag, which was getting mixed up with the ‘poo bags’. So, on returning home, I got to thinking. I had finally reached the point of no return with a pair of trousers, no longer even fit for wearing to the allotment, so I figured I could use them to create a treat bag for my Aunt’s doggy friends.
Initially I thought of using the front pockets…. but the slant looked as though this would be tricky as I wasn’t sure it would work, but that tie would be useful….
Yep, the back pocket had far more potential, shame I can’t cut in a straight line!
So this was the edges all neatened up, but maybe a double sided pocket would be a good idea…..
Okay, a trouser leg looked promising, there is a hem which could be used, when sewn to the pocket, to hold a draw string.
Sides all sewn up and draw string inserted and it’s starting to come together…
Draw strings pressed and tied and a button for detail. The button was in my button box (everyone has a button box – right??)
The final product, a wee bag, just the right size (I hope) for a few dog biscuits on one side and….. something else on the other!
