FQG130 Pet Pop-Ups Pattern

Two fun sizes!
Hardware Sold Separately

Do you have furry friends that love to travel with you? The Pet Pop-Ups are collapsible pet dishes you will love!  The interior is made from soft laminate that holds water (as long as Fido doesn't chew holes in it).  The laminate is easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth. 

FYI - The dishes are intended for on-the-go use... so I can't guarantee they will hold water for hours or days.  I did test it and had no leaks after 24 hours... but I can't guarantee the laminate you purchase will do the same.  

Compatible Refill Springs:
  FQG121 Small Pop-Up Refill - 5.5" Diameter
  FQG123 Medium Pop-Up Refill - 8" Diameter

FQG131 Mini Pop-Up Refill

Includes Free Pattern using a no-circle construction method
    I made this construction method free because it doesn't have as 
    nice a finished bottom as the other patterns FQG120 or FQG122. 
    There are dimensions included with the spring to cut out the 
    pieces you need to use the FQG120 and FQG122 patterns.

The Mini Pop-Up is a terrific little size that fits right in the cup holder of your car for sewing on the go (passenger's only... lol). It also has an option to add Insul-Bright to turn it into a can cooler.
