I've had this since I was a baby ... it was passed down from other family members.  I never continued that tradition of passing it along and globbed onto it ... I still have it! It's been through a lot ... patched up all over the place.  The outside is all sewn up tiny squares of cotton fabric with children's illustrations.  It's stuffed with old cut up nylons.

That's cool, but there's nothing like that cute old vintage fabric that the Garbage Collectors is made out of...

ya know what? reprodepot fabrics (and probably other stores) sell reproductions of fabrics just like that. here's an example:

There is a much-loved homeless doggie just like this one at a local thrift store.  I'd have brought it home already but they want $20 for it.  It's made of feed-sack material.  Very adorable.

Everyone I know has *just* had babies, so I cut out squares like a mo'fo & cranked out six of these, according to the hancock pattern (Is it still cranking if it takes a month?). The Hancock ones turned out to be MASSIVE. My friend's boyfriend thought they were horses. Maybe I somehow screwed up directions? I was also an idiot & managed to not photograph any of them before sending them out. Poops. I'm hoping I'll get a picture of a baby & dog from some parent!

If it's vintage baby animal fabrics you want, there's a seller on US ebay who I've bought off a few times called majikhorsefabrics . She is the greatest.  I don't know where she finds it all, but it's amazing.  Just not cheap.  Plus when you add on postage to Australia, I had to stop buying from her.
But her stuff would be great for a project like this.

OMG perfect! I know so many babies being born this year (including my own!) and this would be a great thing to make for them all. I too saw that one on Hanckock, but didn't think much of it... now with the cute fabric, it's just so great!

I had one of these as a little girl and loved it.  His name was "Patches" (original, I know!) and I still have him packed away in a box somewhere.  I couldn't/wouldn't sleep without him; I think I even took it to summer camp when -- I WAS TEN!!!   Cheesy

Ever seen the movie "Contact"?  Young Ellie has one of these patchwork pooches on her bed near the begining of the movie.  Tongue

I've picked up 2 of those over the years from thrift shops. I'm glad to have the pattern now and will add it to my list of things to make some day.  Tongue

I actually make horses with this pattern.  Instead of square ears, I add little folded triange ears, and I leave off the tail square.  Then, I use yarn to add a mane and tail, using the same stitch I use for Raggedy Ann's hair.

I've also used the same pattern to make baby quilts.
