"I think it important to reuse things we already have. The stuff I made for Cricket was from stuff I already had. I approached local thrift stores and they eagerly donated stuff to me. I use bookbags, ties and belts to make things like collars and also a doggy backpack. (I make some of the best collars from the ugliest ties). I have even made collars from old sweaters and doggy sweaters from sweaters too. I think we waste so much stuff in our lives -we think it all has to be new. Well, what can you make out of something old? I even reuse the clips from old bookbags as the clips for my collars
I made a backpack for dogs in memory of my old dog Angus who died at Christmas. He was a three legged dog who was aggressive towards other dogs. We learned from Ceasar's Show 'The Dog Whisperer' that a back pack helped with aggression. We put one on Angus and he was a totally different dog. He was so proud!!!! I made a pack from a donated damaged bag, for dogs, in memory of him.
