Daily Dog Challenge 1360. "You Had Me At 'Hello'"

How can I resist them?

This is not a new background, although it's one I've used very, very rarely as the creases are pronounced and the pattern makes cloning them away not really an option.

(Yes, Mom. I know I could iron it, but...)

The black sparkly velvet they are lying on IS new - a great find on the fabric store remnant rack.

Usually ~$22/yd, it was on sale for ~$10/yd, and then 50% off of that because it was a remnant.

Remnants are typically a yard or less, but for whatever reason this one was just shy of 1.2 yards and came in under $7.

And it's lovely.

The bed they - and the black velvet - are lying on is also new. A giant orthopedic dog bed I splurged real money on pretty much just for pictures, although I'm hopeful that once the weather turns cold one or the other will take a liking to it.

Despite my remnant's generous size - more than enough to cover the width of the bed - the depth wasn't quite there, so I had to do some post-processing magic to hide the strip of brown bed that was showing in the back.

Next time I'll put a piece of crushed velvet underneath my sparkly velvet, to hide the rest of the bed.
