My Creative Space... (and giveaway number three)

I'm dog sitting my sister's dog Elsie this week and she likes having her coat on but the one she has is getting a bit old and small. 




It was a hand-me-down to start with but now I think its time she had a new one so yesterday I whipped up this.






Today I'm going to finish it off, maybe with some pink trim or blanket stitch or something.


Visit Kootoyoo to see more creative spaces today.


Now for this weeks giveaway...number three of four.


I feel like I'm repeating myself now so if you've read the last two weeks blurb then you know what's going on so just skip this bit. For those who haven't been here before...just for fun I've been giving away some iPad sleeves. I've given away two already so two to go. One today and one next Thursday. I know a lot of people don't have iPads (yet) but feel free to enter anyway and you could give it away as a present or something.

Here's the one that's being given away this week.





It's made from a plaid upcycled fabric. It's brown (as you can see) with a bit of black and olive green running through it and lined with white polar fleece and has stiff interfacing so it's easy to get your iPad in and out (effortlessly my husband said).



To enter all you need to do is leave a comment. CLOSED



Entries will be open till 8am on Wednesday 21st July 2010. Please make sure you leave an email address so I can contact you if you're the winner. I'll post to anywhere in the world.



Good luck! Hope you all have a nice Thursday. xx

She looks very cozy in the new coat. What a nice surprise for your sister, too!

I love the fabric on this iPad cover. Problem is, I've loved them all, so it would be awfully hard to choose just one! ;)

Lovely new coat for your sister's dog!
A chance to win one of your ipad covers?? GREAT! I don't have an ipad, but it would make a great gift - or perhaps if I had a cover, I'd need to get something to put in it myself.....?

(Hope you got something good from buyster for your win!)

You would be the best dog minded ever making a new coat!! And your coat looks much more snuggly warm too.
My techie brother in laws came around and stayed the weekend and happened to spot my new iPad sleeve. They are on a mission to buy an iPad just so they can buy one of your sleeves... So I will bug and bug and bug them to hurry up!! LOL...

Love from the snow...

fab little dog coat!(and a cute little dog too). and i agree, a little bit of coloured trim will look great, pink, or even orange.

and i'm loving your givaways. the colours in this week's sleeve is oh-so-stylish!

Wendy said...

You just boggle my mind, Miss Hannah. Swell coat.

Julia said...

Elsie looks fabulous, Hannah - the coat is great! Emily has a new coat too - you'll see it soon. Love you, Mum XXXXXXXXXX

Crochet with Raymond said...

So cute! She probably loves her coat and needs it so much! Not much padding on that dog! Your i-pad covers are so stunningly professional, I love your labels on them... alas, have no i-pad :(
Oh, and the little wee cupcakes with the dolls stuffed into them from a couple of posts ago are delightful... I'm going to a good friends tea party hen's do, and think I may have to borrow that idea, it'll go down a treat! Your blog is lovely... I've saved it!

Steph said...

Elsie looks snug as a bug in a rug! She's far from a meaty gal so she probably needs all the help she can get in the warming department. Great job!

Baa-Me Kniits said...

Hannah that rug is a ripper! Elsie looks snug as a bug in it....maybe I should employ you to make all my horse and dog rugs!! Yours looks like it fits so much better and I bet the finish will be super as well!!

michelle said...

i think blanket stitch sounds like the perfect embellishment. love that plaid sleeve

Catherine said...

lucky Elsie!

Love the plaid - like that it's unisex in appeal...

dash robin said...

Aw,you are so kind to make this not so fleshy dog a new coat, your sister and pup must be happy!hope you are doing well selling those beautifully made ipad sleeves, they really look fab.

Emma said...

There was me thinking I'd entered! I think I'd forgotten I just thought about doing it rather than doing it!!! oops! I'd so love one of these covers for my iPad which I love to bits!

PS the doggerel looks sooo smart in his new coat! I love that dogs like to wear stuff!! Cats just won't... ;)
