In which we* announce the Crazy Dog Lady Sewing Challenge!!!

So, EXCITING NEWS YA'LL! *Myself, along with Tanya and Sophie-Lee, are pleased to announce the.....


What the heck is a Crazy Dog Lady Sewing Challenge, you ask?

Well, it is a sewing challenge for people who have their own furbabies, or for people who just simply love dogs.

Because what's not to love?

Well how the heck to I get involved?

You must sew a garment for either yourself or a friend using dog-themed fabric, OR you can sew a garment for your dog (OR BOTH. PLEASE MAKE IT MATCH YOU WILL MAKE MY DAY!)

(Almost as much as these eyebrows made my week.)
You also need to become a member of our flickr group to share your final makes, or you may e-mail them to me directly (see sidebar button for my e-mail address, please put "Crazy Dog Lady" in the subject line). And while you are over at flickr, feel free to discuss fabrics and patterns, and share your PIPs, ask for advice, and just join in with the community in general!

Feel free to join in with this much enthusiasm. Or don't. Your call.
Also, feel free to use the hashtag #crazydogladysewing to connect with more crazy dog lovers, and check out our three blogs for information and inspiration.

What are the dates?

Well, the sewing challenge officially opens today, and it will close on Sunday, March 15, 2015. This way we all have over a month to source our fabric and get crackin'.

Are you confused yet?

Are there any prizes?

HECK YES THERE ARE! We have a number of lovely sponsors who have been kind enough to donate some prizes and give us some discounts on their products!

Check 'em out (in no particular on the logo to head to our sponsors' websites):

There will be four randomly awarded prizes, so feel free to go as crazy as you want with your lovely makes! More information on the prizes and discounts tomorrow so be sure to check back here.

What else should I know?

Well, Tanya, Sophie-Lee, and myself will be doing a number of posts to inspire you and show you what we are working on, so be sure to check in on us!

Feeling inspired yet?

Do you have a button that I can use?


Just kidding! Of course, we do!

Anything else I should know?
Yes! From one crazy dog lady to another, I say it is time to take the internet back from all of the crazy cat ladies out there (Sorry, Erin!) and show them which four-legged fur-baby is truly the best one of all!
Until tomorrow, please enjoy this final note:


  1. Hahah thank you, they make me laugh! Can't wait to see what you make :)

  2. I didn't think I was going to get to join in, but necessity is the mother of invention, so my Little Bee got a sweatshirt to keep her warm during this freak cold spell! I'm SO happy someone thought of this. I love cats too, but we're a dog crazy household.

  3. Well I'm glad you could join but wish it could be under other circumstances! I'm about ready to give up on Canada and move to Hawaii myself :)
