I haven't had time for many projects lately because I have a two month old that wants to eat every two hours (including during the night), BUT I was able to find a little time to whip up these pretend dog treats.
This craft might seem completely random (and it kind of is), but I was inspired when Little Man was playing pretend with his stuffed dog one morning. He kept asking me to fill up a couple bowls I'd given him with imaginary treats and water for his dog. Then he'd pretend to take her (he named her Bell) on a walk to Target and Chipotle. Ya know, completely normal places that a two year old to want to go.
It was just so cute, and I found myself thinking it would be nice if he had some "real" treats to give his dog. I figured it wouldn't be too difficult to make something like play food made out of felt and realized that I had all the supplies on hand.
The dog treats only took about an hour to finish. I wanted to get them done while Little Man was still playing so perfection was not my goal here. My stitches are sooo uneven and I used the brown yarn as stuffing because I didn't want to spend the time trying to find the polyfill that I have. The bone pattern I used is attached below the instructions. I just printed it out on card stock and traced it onto the felt with a pen.
So easy and Little Man really seems to be enjoying them!
