As a dog owner, I am constantly looking for new products or designs that show off I am a proud Shiba Inu owner. Most people have never even heard of a Shiba Inu since they are so rare. This is a big problem when us Shiba owners want to show off our most prized possessions. I took it upon myself to create my own Shiba merchandise :)

First I started off with a trip to my local crafts store, Michaels.
These are the materials you will need:
- Sheets of foam in various colors that you feel best suit the design you want
- Fabric adhesive glue to secure the pieces on well
- A roll of magnetic tape to cut as you wish
- Scissors or maybe an xacto knife would work better
- Model Shiba Inu that I got from google images
Don't forget to use a coupon when buying anything from Michael's, you can always find one online!
