Red face A work in progress - My First Chi Craft - A supersized, extra fluffy, snuggle sack

Hello!

Thought I'd share my first foray into Chi crafting, I am a face and body painter by trade so pretty in to "making things" as my other half calls it!

This is my accidentally massive cozy snuggle bag for my little pup. I wanted to put the panel in the bottom so it wasn't just an envelope and that is what seems to have made it so giant. I haven't stitched the outside and the inside together yet or sewn the roll of fur over the top yet, it will probably be narrow than in the picture, I just put them together to see what Basil thought and he loved it. I am considering putting some extra seams in to take out some material to make it smaller ... what do you guys think?



Basil Approved!





Extra snuggly (and bright pink!) fur





It really is huge! Basil is 3lbs!

I know the colours are not traditionally Boy colours but I had been drooling over how cute the outer material is in the shop for ages and the fur is the densest and softest faux fur I have felt in a long time, it is so thick and luxurious, Basil immediately rubbed his face all over it and fell asleep. The shop owner said they are getting more colours in soon and I plan to make him a couple more for other rooms in the house as he hasn't really got the hang of burying into blankets, he just lays on top! Plus the shop has tonbs of the cutest material I have ever seen ... I need to use more of it!

Too cute! Basil certainly doesn't think it's too big! He looks quite comfy!

It's beautiful!! I would go a bit smaller. You might lose him in there. My little boy sleeps in a lot of girly stuff too. I just love Pink! He never complains. I have tons of boy stuff too, but I do prefer girly things. hehehehe

That looks great, I wish I was a bit more crafty but its never been my thing. Basil looks adorable snuggling in it, I like the one where he's got his little bone next to him, it's like he's keeping it safe for later

I love the colors, it is so pretty, don't think he cares that it is pink. He is so handsome.

I love it! Basil can probably grow into it more since he's still a pup, but at least he can stretch out in it.

I think it's awesome! I love how you made the bottom, it gives it a
"flower cup" appearance. Basil is just the cutest. Love him.
