Dog Bone

August is here… My dog’s birthday is just tomorrow, August 15th! For the past 7 years, we cook her something yummy and surprise her with a toy! This year will be no different… Except I will be making her a toy, in the shape of a dog bone! The shape of the dog bone I’ve used is here. What I use is a suede-like material from my laptop sleeve. I really love the sleeve and its soft material, so I thought of re-using it in another way (which is to make it into a toy)!
