Pet ProjectsPet lovers are always looking for special ways to show their animals they care. In the new book “Pet Projects: The Animal Knits Bible,” authors Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne encourage owners to make unique, handmade gifts for their favorite animal friends.

If you’re handy with a knitting needle or sewing machine, there are plenty of projects to choose from. Whether your animal is large or small, swims or trots, the book likely has an idea for you. Your goldfish may enjoy a floating water lily while your bunny might enjoy the carrot curtain. From a hand-knit tortoise hibernation tent or hamster house to a puppy papoose and cat cushion, the crafts will keep your precious one feeling cared for. Both practical and pretty, the projects will keep your pet comfortable and in style.

The book features color photos, and detailed patterns, designs, and directions to help you create a special gift. And, of course, all of the projects can be adapted for your individual animal. Any crafty pet parent will enjoy creating these items and any pet will feel truly loved.

“Pet Projects: The Animal Knits Bible” by Sally Muir and Joanna Osborne is on sale now.
