Getalong little Doggies

If our house could hold 8 dogs, I think my children would find a way to smuggle them in.  Until then...

What you're seeing on your screen is pretty much actual size. To make, cut two side pieces into a decent doggish silhouette. then cut a gusset (the belly piece).

Stitch it all together.  Add ears, spots and tail if you wish. I did my eyes with knots of black embroidery floss.  I stuffed these guys with left over felt and stuffing.  I stitched with big 'ol stitches so that the pups would look obviously homemade.

These are so cute! I love the idea and i love sowing! My mom and grandma like dogs and this is an easy DIY project for me (a child) and some leftover fabric! Thanks! :) <3
