Meet Bruce!!!!

Hellooo!  I always enjoy my DT work but sometimes you have a daft idea and you just have to go with it :D.  Over at ~The Craft Barn Blog~ we are having a week using Sissix dies.  I saw this new little fella and had to have him hahaha!  He could go on a key-ring, handbag or just hang around waiting for his walk hahaha!

He has been cut twice from leather and machine sewn.  The bone has been cut from shrink plastic, coloured, shrunk and attached with a ring up near the leather strap.  I fiddled about with an extra felt eye to give him some character.  Added a chain and a scrappy fabric collar to finish him off!

From The Craft Barn.....

Oh my goodness you've made that diecut look soooooo fabulous!
It's looks amazing in leather and the lead and bone is just a brilliant addition. Love how his ribbon and bone match!
His eye makes his expression look very put upon something like "What, you want me to fetch that ball AGAIN?"
