Fabric Journal - August

August is known as "Doggie Days of Summer".
For this swap and this month I decided to have the
journal depict the hot days of summer. This is photo on fabric
of my dog Katie and when you lift that up you get another photo
transfer of my DH asleep with Katie on the swing.
The same fabric is on the front and back, with batting in between.
I then tried my hand at a little free motion sewing to keep it
together. I embellished it with a dog house.
Although I am not as good as some in doing this project of a monthly
journal, it is so much fun and it is for my grandchildren to enjoy
and remember me when I am no longer here.

  1. Neat idea and the "doggy days" fabric is the perfect thing -- what a lucky find!
