Whether you are handy with crafts or not, we’ve got an exciting date to share with you: National Craft for Your Local Shelters Day, July 21, 2012. This national day is spearheaded by Erika from Sew Doggy Style, a site that features an amazing array of cute items you can craft for your dog. (We’ve featured some of Erika’s crafty creations here in DogTipper’s DIY section!) On this day, everyone is urged to create crafts that can be donated to their local shelters to help homeless pets.
It doesn’t take a lot of creativity, budget or time to create great crafts that your local shelter can use to brighten the day of a dog or cat. From turning your old t-shirts into a braided toy to creating a simple and easy pet bed, you can make a big difference in a homeless pet’s life!
Erika has lots of ideas on Sew Doggy Style for ways everyone can participate in National Craft for Your Local Shelters Day. You’ll find low-cost ideas that you can share with your friends (and wouldn’t this be the perfect project for children looking for some inexpensive ways to have fun and help pets this summer?!) Visit Sew Doggy Style for information on National Craft for Your Local Shelters Day for ways to help the dogs and cats in your area!
