    Default Dog Walking Bag from Repurposed Items

    It's blazing hot out today so I stayed in and made a "dog-walking purse". It had to be big enough to hold a book, some poop bags (empty of course!) and a water bottle. I spent $2.98 at the thrift store on a straw purse and a long scarf.



    Then I used beads I already had to make a design on the front of it and really personalize it. I removed the old handles and attached a long scarf so that I could wear the bag diagonally across my body to keep my hands free for leash juggling.

    Here's the end result - I really like it!

    I really like it too! I am using a small bum bag to keep my hands free but it is too small to fit the things I usually carry with me. That's a great idea.

    Cute idea, Daisy. It's always good to keep the necessities handy, plus you get bonus points for doing so stylishly!

    Don't forget some individually wrapped hand wipes, too. I learned that the hard way when one of ours started chowing down on some unknown substance while we were hiking in a state park once. I had to pry it out of her mouth and ended up with what I suspect was some kind of wild critter scat all over my hands and no way to clean it up.

    A fanny pack with a sturdy D ring slipped onto the belt works well, too. A carabiner attaching the D ring and the hand loop on the leash makes for hands-free walking. I made custom belts with some extra options for our dogs and we've used them for years.
