|Pups at the Park|
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!
Genius! Do you felt them with dog hair? Because I have some of that to spare!ReplyDelete
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!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
Oh, I know you are partial to those Labbys!Delete
I respectfully disagree with SlimDoggy and declare the corgis the pawesomest!!! Meet the Beagles is funny too... but corgis!!! :)ReplyDelete
Thought you might like those corgis!Delete
Oh that is adorable! Love the corgis.ReplyDelete
I smile every time I look at those corgis. The leashes crack me up.Delete
Oh you should definitely win a blue ribbon for those! I want to make a felt Bentley! I'm glad that you're going to post a how-to!ReplyDelete
Oooo, a Bentley would be pretty similar to a beagle. Hopefully our How To will help!Delete
Abbey Road for us BOL BOL funny Rita photobombing the corgis. Have a wonderful Wednesday.ReplyDelete
Best wishes Molly
I think Abbey Road will do better in the competition that MtB, but we'll see!Delete
Absolutely love both of these! Can't help but think you'll get the blue this year. Though Rudy and I do wish you could've done Labby Road :-)ReplyDelete
We are going to be SO bummed if we don't get a blue ribbon (or two...)Delete
I can't choose. I think they are all amazing.ReplyDelete
How COOL and LOVE it! You are going to WIN again. Happy BlogPaws WW. Golden WoofsReplyDelete
We hope so! :)Delete
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!ReplyDelete
It was an excellent suggestion! And, yes, I hope we'll be doing the dance of joy again!Delete
That is a hit!!! A blue ribbon for sure again this year!ReplyDelete
Hope so - fingers and paws crossed!Delete
Both are Great!!!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I'd like to say the best part is the fun we had making them... but let's face it. We wanna WIN!Delete
FAB4-ulous. Wow, your creativity with these is off the charts. I can't imagine anyone being able to beatle these! Good Luck!ReplyDelete
Hahahah! Love your comment! Very clever!Delete
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.ReplyDelete
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!Delete
Wow, those are great! I LOVE the corgis!ReplyDelete
Thanks! We think they're pretty darn cute, if we do say so ourselves!Delete
You are so wonderfully creative! :) I can't wait for your how to post, I'm excited to try making one of Niles!ReplyDelete
Ohhhh my Dog!! That is brilliant!!!!!ReplyDelete
We think they're both totally awesome; but of course, we're going to be partial to Corgis in anything. We can't wait to see your blue ribbon this year!ReplyDelete
WOW!! I didn't know you make felt dogs! OMG these are AMAZING!ReplyDelete
The corgis with the photos are amazingly awesome! You should definitely get an award for that creation and idea!ReplyDelete
You are way more talented and patient than our house is so we love to just look at what you do! Love DollyReplyDelete
The little felt pups are very well done!ReplyDelete
It took me a moment to work out the "British Invasion" thing! Had to count back in years and still didn't get it, even with your title!! Doh! Anyway I thought we left you lot to fight it out between you in 1776!! ;)ReplyDelete
PS Definitely award winning I woulld say !
Those are fab and very clever!ReplyDelete
They're both great, but Abbey Road is my favourite!ReplyDelete
I love that Rita stuck her nose in. She probably couldn't believe that those little dogs were getting so much attention from you!
Those are so awesome!! They definitely both deserve the blue ribbons!ReplyDelete
Love Rita's photobombs too....I think she had to give her stamp of approval.
