Finally a new item! I feel like I have been working on this site so much and filling orders that I have not been able to really create something new and fabulous. So here it is! The pet dish mat. Ok, it's silly I know but fun, right?
Our cat Bliss could not wait for my photo session to end to have ago.
The idea started out with a problem to solve. Don insists that the cat food tin sits right there with the cat bowls. I agree it keeps the cats from fighting. But the problem is that the water dish is constantly spilling out on to the floor and is making a rust ring on the floor.
One of our favorites gift shops is this great store in CaryTown called Mogrel. It always has great kitchy items for your pet. Well ages ago we had gotten a mat for the cat bowls from that store. With two sick kids a trip to Carytown was out of the question. So off I go to google for a bit of inspiration. Check out what I found I love, love, love these! But my .99 cent Ikea bowls are just fine with me. But I am loving the mats!
So off I went. And now the patterns done, the oilcloth picked out, the samples done, and the items listed on Etsy. I love an idea that just falls together! I will be making them in other colors too, for oilcloth samples at my flickr page.
