Its been a busy year for our little family with the birth of our beautiful son in April last year. Pretapawte has still been chugging along but needless to say my time is a little more stretch than it used to be.
Perspective has changed a little in our family however Alvin is still a very important part of our family and has very much accepted his role as bigger brother and reluctantly accepts all cuddles and tail pulling with minimal retaliation.
Anyway Back to more sewing in preparation for next months Handmade Market hopefully it won't be so long between post next time.
Well, it's been a while since our last post as we have been busily renovating our new house in Canberra through the winter months but as the snow thaws, we are getting busy again!
We had a great market in September at the Canberra Handmade Market. It was good to see the first rays of sunshine bring out a great crowd. We will be back at the Handmade Market on the 4th of December. Make sure you get along and see us and if you're looking for a dog collar, measure your dogs current collar length before you come so we can ensure you get the right size on the day.
We have been busy shopping for new fabrics and have more than 20 new designs to show off in Spring. There might even be some special Christmas themes for the pet who has everything.
Now all we need to do is find the time to take the photo's to put up in our Etsy store. So much to do!
The inspiration for Prèt à pawté -- ready to wear pet accessories -- was our cat Alvin, who my husband and I adopted from the Cat Protection Society in 2008. Being a modern cat Alvin wasn't interested in the usual cat collars with all their flashy diamantes and additional bling. Alvin is very NOW in his funky, handcrafted fabric collars and wanted to share his style with Dogs and Cats throughout the world.
