2013 was a rough one, but I’m excited for 2014 and am thrilled to share my latest project with you. As you may know, I recycle Cashmere sweaters into hats and scarves. This year I’m making a commitment to recycle a bunch of old Cashmere into new dog sweaters and donate them to my favorite dog rescue!
I combined my two greatest loves, dogs and Cashmere recycling, into one and made the first dog sweater to donate to Wonder Dog Rescue. My goal is to make one a week for a total of 52 sweaters this year. Then I had this idea this morning…I’ll document each one on my blog and ask people to “sponsor” each sweater. I’ll ask for a $40 donation directly to Wonder Dog Rescue. They are a non profit and donations are deductible. You can sponsor one sweater or several. If you have a business, I’ll promote your business on that particular sweater post and will list you on a page of Sponsors! My blog gets a ton of traffic and my Youtube video has been viewed something like 50,000 times. Please help me achieve this goal this year. First sweater is finished! anyone want to be the first sponsor by donating $40???

These buttons made a great final touch on the sweater.
Lola is a perfect fit model!
