Hi all, I am trying to find a sewing pattern so i can make a stuffed Cavalier King Charles Spaniel.

Does anyone know where i can get a paper pattern of a dog with this body type? I can sort out the colouring and stuff myself, but i need the basic body.

http://www.akc.org/breeds/cavalier_king_charles_spaniel/index.cfm

I would appreciate any advice

Thankyou, Eve

Dont know if this helps. If you shorten the body and make it the right color it would be ok. The face is similar.

Thanks for the reply perculus, I have seen this one before and if i cannot find a ready-made pattern i will probably end up altering one like this.

I appreciate the help

I am sock girl, myself, and have made sock dogs before - I have posted some sort of tutorial here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=192082.0

I would probably use fuzzy socks for this one and add the coloring with fuzzy felt or fabric.

Thanks gilowyn, i have seen this post and thought it was great!

I am actually looking for a life-like pattern - mum's dear old King Charles died last year and she misses him terribly, so i thought i might try to make her a stuffed replica. Complete down to his markings.

Thankyou for your help

Could you use this one and adapt it? http://dollmaker.nunodoll.com/dog/dachshund.html

If you lengthen the legs and shorten the snout, that might work...

thank you so much gilowyn, he's really cute but unfortunately only the size of a barbie's pet! i will look into it and see if he could be enlarged and still look like a king charles
