Our neighboring town just got it's first police dog. Sew, I am blessed to be able to sew for him. Such a huge honor. I will be giving His Officer Handler this beautiful paw photo frame. It was stitched on genuine leather. The back has a pocket to slip his photo inside. This is the officers first police dog assignment, so I wanted to make something memorable. I chose the colors of his beautiful coat of fur. I hope it is received well!

This will be displayed with pride. Fabulous work on it. I have a soft heart for our working dogs. They serve so loyally and have saved many people and officers in the police force and with the military.

Such a thoughtful gift and I am sure the Officer/Handler will love it. I have made several of these ornaments using felt - but never even thought about using the leather or adding the year. I love the way your ornament looks and will definitely try it your way when I make some more this Christmas.

This design is from embroidery Garden. They suggest using felt but I think the leather just kicks it up a notch!

Yes, the leather is awesome! Great idea for baby photos - use white or neutral leather and maybe a Christmas applique - tree ornament. Thanks for helping me think of this! I have a family member who works with a canine partner and it is awesome.
