short for Manford. But he had about fifty nicknames.

He was just six months old when he came to live with us and he fit right in. He followed me EVERYWHERE like a little shadow and when I sat down he would be as close as possible without actually sitting on me.

He was the only dog with actual permission to sleep on the bed and not once did he chose to sleep elsewhere. Nor did we ever displace him, despite the snoring.

I miss you terribly my little snuggle-pug, this house just won’t be the same without you.

I made this cute little tote bag “on the fly”. I didn’t have a pattern but I had just made myself an Osoberry bag so I had a premise to follow. I believe I wrote down all the lengths of my fabric cuts somewhere but do you think I could find them now that I’ve finally gotten around to posting this? No. I’m sure they will surface as soon as I press the publish button.

I used the same main fabric on the inside and outside. So it essentially looks the same inside and out which makes it tote-ally reversible! Not that it wouldn’t be reversible with differing fabrics I just really like these stripes!

Also, my main fabric used to be a pillowcase! Which was the perfect amount of fabric for this experiment!
