Saving Skunky

Kolachi's favorite "skunky" toy finally bit the dust today-- she managed to rip the weighted rubber ball out of the head and it just wasn't the same fun to play with.  Alex decided to re-purpose it into a new dog toy.
 First we washed it.  That was one gross skunk.  Once it was nice and clean she cut it open, inserted an empty plastic water bottle and sewed it up.  She used the machine for the long seams, and hand sewed the opening shut.
 Success!  She had one grateful puppy...
 I was doing a bit of sewing today too-- I've set up a temporary studio in the kitchen because it's much easier to mind the dog while I sew.
