Commissioned Corgi Koozies...

This was my commission project...three Corgi Koozies.
Did you know that I was unable to find more canvas, padded blanks?
Yup. If anyone knows where I can get them, please let me know.
For this project, I purchased the neoprene, created my own template for the
base, attached the velcro, made my own coordinating binding, and stitched
out the designs. My client requested a black-headed, tri-color Pembroke...
a handsome Red and White Pembroke...
and this head of a black-headed, tri-colored Pem...all on a royal purple fabric.
I chose the binding fabric to enhance the koozie., and finished them yesterday.
I sent photographs of the final products for her approval. They were a hit!
She loved them, so they'll go in the mail to her today.
Today is the last day that Aunty Marg and Uncle Dick will be here with us.
We're going to Sarasota to Mote Marine Aquarium, and we'll do a little more
touring together before coming back home to attend Handsome's first concert of
the season. We were just saying that we can't believe how the time has flown by.
One more day before they head back to cooler Wisconsin weather. So
many new memories we'll hold dear until the next time we see each other.


  1. Good morning Donna, I have enjoyed catching up with you and Tag this morning. I love the cozies that you made. The one with just the head reminds me of the boy's corgi Shorty. Matt named him and it is fun to watch the two of them together. It is time to leave for the nursing home for family care planning meeting. Take care Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.

  2. I can't believe how fast your visiting time with Auntie and Uncle has gone. Great job on the Corgi Koozies. I know you will enjoy your visiting and concert. Blessings and Safe Travels for all...

  3. Dear Donna - these are certainly lovely works of art. I am sure your recipient is going to love them. Have a wonderful week-end.
