I've come down with a mild case of "softie fever" and was smitten with Mad Dog from "Softies Only A Mother Could Love".  Then, a friend gave me a couple yards of black suede-like fabric.  Destiny!  My sewing machine thread kept breaking though and I sewed him by hand.

Beetle Bug was the inspiration for this one.  She's sewn from fabric scraps and her gingham legs have quilt batting filling for added body.
Nobody could do that much dcoupage without calling on the powers of darkness.

I have that book! It's great - I've made so many softies from that. I made Mad dog also - one for me and one for my dog. I think yours is much better than mine- the legs on mine came out too thin. 
I also wanted to make the Beetle bug, but haven't yet - yours is so cute!  I love your fabric choices!

I have made the mad dog as well, yours looks great!! I used a brown towel for mine, it was cheap (I got two out of a $5 towel, and the toweling makes it look like it is hairy.
