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.

I had one of those patchwork scottie dogs when I was a little girl! Now I totally want to make one again!
