Seedlings and a Puppy Harness

The first of my TreeProject seedlings have emerged!
These are tiny river bottlebrushes (Callistemon sieberi), which were among the first lot of seeds I sowed, eleven days ago.

Today I made a tiny dog harness, entirely sewn on the treadle machine:
I used Erin Erikson's Little Dog Harness pattern, available here. It does up with velcro, and has a ring on the back to attach a lead to. I made the smallest size but I think Jack may need to grow a little more before it fits.

His reaction to trying it on was to fall over on his back and attack the straps vigorously!


  1. Attacking the harness made me laugh . Such a puppy thing to do. It made me laugh.

  2. Maybe he's making a fashion comment - perhaps he doesn't like the colour!

  3. Such a cutie! I hope the lovely harness survived his attack, though ;)

  4. There's the true terrier spirit coming out! Great job on the harness - I'm sure you'll be making him a few more - one for each season & holiday.

  5. So cute! And the potential baby trees are pretty awesome also.

  6. Very cute! Thanks for the link to the pattern, I might try and make a harness for my rabbit!
