ScrapHappy December 2021

The arrival of Sammy means that we’ve been rather busy for much of the past month, so there has been little crafting going on. However, one of the games that the dog trainer has suggested that we play with Sammy involves a “toy” on a length of cord; the toy being some soft or fleecy fabric. Apparently you can buy such things, but I was sure that my scrappy stash would yield something suitable…

First, I fished out the piece of cord and wrist strap that I removed of the horrible broken bodyboard that featured in July’s ScrapHappy. After that, it was just a case of finding some fabric that might appeal to him. Since he’d already pinched a piece of red woollen cloth left over from my ‘little red riding hood coat‘, I decided to go for that. A few knots later and we had a toy that can be flicked about to gain his attention. It’s probably the simplest ScrapHappy ever, but Sammy likes it.

    Sammy looks like a very happy doggy with his toy! Some of the best toys are things from around the house that cost $0. Our kitty is fascinated by the jar opener (my sis in laws mom made from a rug gripper cloth crocheted with a pretty sc border). In fact, when SIL gave me a new one last week, the little imp came up and snatched it from my lap. We all had a hefty laugh… and SIL Mom said she’d make a new one for me and disquise it. hehe!
