Personalized Dog Bowl and Placemat

Oh how we love this cute little placemat and dog bowl set that fits right in with our snowflake holiday decor around the house!  Not to mention these items would make great gifts too.


We received an awesome package in the mail from Martha Stewart Paints to make this project.  The paints, brush tools, and stencils make personalizing items easy.  


For this project, we used the following Martha Stewart Paints supplies:

1. Adhesive letter stencils
2. Dauber set (mini sponges on handled tips...love these!)
3. Metallic Glass Paint
4. Snowflake adhesive silkscreens
5. Handled squeegee brushes
6. Multi-Surface Satin Acrylic Craft Paint in "Wedding Cake" white


Instructions:

We added personalization to both the dog bowls and placemat with letter adhesive stencils from Martha Stewart Crafts.  Adhesives make everything better, including letter spacing!  Plus you can reuse them over and over.  Simply position stencils on your item and lightly press small dauber sponge dipped in paint over stencil (shown in above photo).  Let paint sit for a few minutes and then peel off the stencils.

For our placemat, we applied snowflake adhesive silkscreens randomly to a 10.5 X 22" piece of fabric. These measurements were based on Sebastian's eating area.  Placemat can also be square, shaped like a bone, etc!  Use Martha Stewart Multi-Surface Acrylic Craft Paint for fabric application.  Start by squirting some of the paint directly onto the stencil and then use a handled squeegee for an even spread.


Then slowly peel off stencil and let paint dry.  So easy!


Here is Sebastian enjoying his new feeding area.


Instructions for finishing the placemat after paint dries:

1.  Apply an iron-on vinyl sheet to top of entire surface.
2.  Cut another 10.5 X 22" piece of fabric for bottom of placemat.  
3.  Pin bottom piece to top piece with vinyl right sides together.
4.  Sew them with a 1/4" seam allowance and leave at least a 3-4" opening.  
5. Clip all 4 corners.
6.  Turn place mat right side out through 3" opening.
7.  Press flat.
8.  Fold in opening 1/4".  
9.  Topstitch entire placemat in thread color of your choice (we used white).

The Tasmanian tiger is a carnivorous (meat-eating) marsupial. Once common in Tasmania, it is now labeled as extinct. During the 1930s, the last thylacine to be killed in the wild was shot and the last known Tamanian tiger died in captivity. great dog site rhodesian ridgeback
