I made this dog (modeled on my pooch) for my soon to be born nephew.
I also made the rainbow horse and a fox (which is a bit weird looking). The beautiful handmade and dyed felt is from Winterwood (http://www.winterwoodtoys.com.au/shop/scdcategories.asp?CatID=4).

Those are your first plushies??? Shocked. They are so cute! Nice too, not wonky at all! I love the nice shape of the puppy. Very good, I never would've guessed they were your first, nice and soft for baby!  (real pup is a cutie too)

Aww! Your felt pup is almost as cute as the real thing! Can't believe they're your first ones. Smiley

They are so sweet (so is the real pup).  I'd love to see another picture of the horse and fox.  Are they all your own patterns?

Thanks for the great comments everyone.  Smiley
No, they're not my patterns, but I think I will redesign them to have a chest gusset. I think the front legs are a bit dorky so close together!
I added the brown patches to the dog pattern, and in hindsight I would have made the mask more central (I didn't allow for the head gusset!).
But its all a learning experience.
I stuffed the horse and fox with carded wool, but used synthetic fill for the dog, and I think I prefer how that feels. The wool can be a bit lumpy if you stuff them firmly.
Any thoughts on this?
