New Fabrics Work Too!
Old clothing makes a sweet and cuddly memory dog, whether from a loved one or outgrown children’s clothes. Or match the dog to a gift quilt by using leftovers from making the quilt.
You can also start with new fabrics in a combination you love. Both kids and adults love this cute pooch and will be happy to have their own.
The finished dog, designed by Amy Jobst, is approximately 16 inches from the top of the head to a toe and 13 inches tall when sitting.
You’ll find a video showing how to make the dog here.
Polyfil is used for the stuffing and the plastic noses and eyes can be purchased here (fusible applique or embroidery should be used to create noses and eyes on dogs for small children).
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
