Welcome back! This is the shirt that the puppies just really would not let me sew. I got the fabric a few years ago from Joanns and have just never gotten around to doing anything with it.

We let her know about when we need her and she’ll spend anywhere form 1/2-2 hours with the puppies depending on how much energy they need to burn for just a flat rate!
