My boyfriend lives in Wisconsin... and I'm all the way over in Southern California. To make the distance suck a little less, I like to send him dorky things that I've made for him. Lately he's been mentioning that he wants a pug... so I decided to make him one!  Cheesy

I now present to you... Mr. Wiggles (and my dog, Lilly with a "WTF?" look on her face)!



I went to PetsMart and had a gold bone engraved with his name. Instead of using a collar, I used thick gold chain so it would look like bling, haha.  Grin

Here is Mr. Wiggles with Mrs. Wiggles. She was my first attempt and I wasn't completely happy with her. So she is mine. =)



Side view (they are three parts glued together):



And here he is at his new home... making some delicious Ramen.



I used a pattern for him because I had no idea how to make the head look right on my own. It was McCall's M5258. Smiley

I just bought that pattern, but probably won't be able to tackle it until after the holidays. I'm really inspired by what you did - I think both pugs you made are adorable!

Those are adorable. My younger brother wants a puppy, now he can get one for Christmas. Did you use suede?

Thanks.  Grin Yup... I used suede. I thought it looked better than plain ol' cotton would have. And you only need a half a yard to make two.

OMG. Thank you!
This would be perfect for Xmas for my mom. She's always bugging me to make her a pug, hers past away last year after 17 yrs.
I just ordered the pattern!!!!!
