What Do The Beatles Have To Do with Wooly Dogs?

Remember our blue-ribbon winning entry from last year's Fair??
Pups at the Park
Well, we're hoping for another blue ribbon (or two...) this year!

The theme this year is The Fab Fair, to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the British Invasion.

Now you know we love to needle felt dogs, so we came up with two entries that are both pup- and Beatles-related!

First, we have Meet the Beagles!
Yes. It's a celebration of "the first album by England's phenomenal pup combo"!

Of course Rita had to photobomb the beagles. (She wanted to meet them! Luckily she wasn't interested in eating them.)

Now... for our second entry... what's more British than the queen's fave dog breed, the Pembroke Welsh corgi??

So, we give you: The Beatles walking their corgis across Abbey Road. (Confession.... I wanted to do Labby Road with 4 Labs, but we already had 2 corgis made. We made them as a gift for my brother-in-law's piano teacher, and he graciously let us borrow them back!)


Here's a close-up of one of the corgi pups:

A bit hard to see here, but the dogs are in step with each of the Beatles, so they all have their left legs forward, except for Paul's corgi, who has his right legs forward. Also Paul is holding the leash in this left hand, while the rest have the leashes in their right.

Of course Rita had to photobomb the corgis as well.
What do you guys think??

If you're interested in trying to felt your own pup, come back soon, because in the near future I'll be doing a How To post!

Thanks to BlogPaws for hosting Wordless Wednesday!

  1. Genius! Do you felt them with dog hair? Because I have some of that to spare!

    1. Yeah, I have that to spare around here too! But we just use wool. Although we could work a bit of the real thing in with it!

  2. I love both, but I think the Abbey Road one is a winner, well it would have been a winner if it was Labby Road...but this is still pretty darn good.

  3. I respectfully disagree with SlimDoggy and declare the corgis the pawesomest!!! Meet the Beagles is funny too... but corgis!!! :)

    1. Oooo, a Bentley would be pretty similar to a beagle. Hopefully our How To will help!

  10. Love them both. Have to vote for Meet the Beagles, just because that was my suggestion. It's going to be a tough one for the judges. Can't wait to do the dance of joy when we see the ribbons in the cabinet at the Fair!

  13. FAB4-ulous. Wow, your creativity with these is off the charts. I can't imagine anyone being able to beatle these! Good Luck!

  14. Oh, Jackie, you might as well clear a space to show your awards because those are too clever and well crafted to have any competition. I'm getting inspired to try my hand at our county fair.

    1. Yes, you should totally enter! It's so fun! Don't know if your fair is the same, but here you get a free entry ticket for the fair when you enter the competition, which is nice, but the best part is that you get to enter through the "Vendor" entrance - where there's no line!

  25. They're both great, but Abbey Road is my favourite!
    I love that Rita stuck her nose in. She probably couldn't believe that those little dogs were getting so much attention from you!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Those are so awesome!! They definitely both deserve the blue ribbons!
    Love Rita's photobombs too....I think she had to give her stamp of approval.
