TinyPawsDesigns and EcoDog Blog is teaming together to bring you a fantastic new free giveaway!! We are giving away a Free XS Dog Harness Vest to 1 lucky EcoDog blog reader!
TinyPawsDesigns was recently featured in our EcoDog article “Dog harness vests”. Dog harness vests are a stylish option for walking your pup and TinyPawsDesigns creator, Georgina, has been generous enough to offer one for our Free GiveAway! 🙂
EcoDog blogger, Allison, went “behind-the-scenes” with the artist and Georgina answered a few of our Q&A to feature along with the giveaway…
*When did you first start designing doggie gear?
“I started designing dog clothes about 15 years ago when I had 11 Yorkshire Terriers and could not find anything of quality or style. During the last two years I decided to start my online business. I enjoy sewing for dogs and they look so cute wearing my creations.”
*How many pets do you have?
“I currently have 2 Yorkshire Terriers and 1 Maltese. All under 4 pounds.”
*Any eco-tips or ways you try to stay green?
“I attempt to keep my pets safe using 100% cotton, silk, wool, all natural outer fabrics when available, and using a hemp/bamboo fleece type interlining. Staying eco-friendly is a challenge to always find suitable fabrics. Also it is going back to the days when light touch-up with an iron is essential. The use of eco fabrics is important as some pets (including mine) have reactions to the synthetic fabrics that are readily available and maintenance free. Today there are more natural fabrics available, but it does require some searching. I also use 100% cotton, rayon, or silk thread to sew my garments. Frankly the thread is not that much more expensive and sews like a dream. The use of natural fabrics was predicated on the fact that one of my babies developed a rash from a micro fabric. If, that type of fabric is away from their body, it is ok as in outerwear (coats), but the inside which will be close to the skin should be a natural fabric.”
