A couple of soft and cuddly cashmere dogs have made their way into my home. They like to play outside…

Cashmere sweater doggie toy

I can’t get enough of these luxe dog toys. They are easy to sew up in an afternoon and make the perfect baby gift for a close friend or relative. All you need to get started is a thrifted cashmere sweater from your local Goodwill store, a few fabric scraps, and some wool or bamboo felt.

I can’t put into words just how super-soft they are. As an added bonus – they’re green for the environment too! Want to make your own? Check out Betz White’s Sewing Green book below for the pattern and directions.

Happy sewing,
