I haven’t sewn anything for over 10 years since I left my sewing machine with my parents and I couldn’t justify buying a new one in Australia. After returning to Hong Kong from our Japan trip, my mum requested a dog sling so she can carry her toy poodle around. The poor pup has terrible anxiety and likes to be close to Mum, but she’s gained weight since her adoption and she’s getting heavier to carry.
So I broke out my old trusty sewing machine from my secondary school days and sewed one for my mum using fabric that she bought when she thought she could attempt making it herself (which then subsequently sat in a cupboard for 6 months). Here is my sister really modelling it. I took a good photo.
Here’s the side view.
I pretty much just sewn the ends together strongly and added two bits of fabric on either sides to create more of a cradle. It worked out pretty good and now I’m tempted to buy a sewing machine when I return to Australia on Sunday… we’ll see.
Side note, please consider all factors before you obtain a pet and please always consider adoption first. I adopted my 2 cats and my mum adopted all her pets. My 2 fur babies were relatively lucky as they didn’t have a terrible past but my Mum’s pets had. They’ve been neglected or abused or abandoned. Pets are commitments for life, they may only be a part of your life but to them, you’re their whole life. Please love your animals.
