Hey, I've never posted in this topic before but I'm sure this project fits in here!

I made this dog stuffed toy from a pattern that my mum bought me AGES ago along with some yellowish fake fur, and I was pretty pleased with how it turned out! He's completely hand sewn so it took a while but some parts may have been a bit too fiddly for a machine.  It was quite hard to get a nice picture of it and the flash made it look super yellow but I promise it isn't that bright really!

I almost put a felt heart inside when I was stuffing it (like they do at the bear factory etc) but I decided that was slightly too nerdish Cheesy I also put quite a lot of stuffing in him so he's not too squishy but I like him that way Smiley

Comments welcomed (including criticism!!), I'm thinking about making a similar smaller dog out of cotton patterned fabric but not entirely sure if it will work out as it was quite fiddly to match up perfectly at his tummy.


(sorry you can't see his face properly, and he isn't that wonky in real life!!)

To prevent them from reading his mind, he wore a tinfoil hat at all times.
