Arf Arf!!

These little guys have been on my to-do list for awhile.
So much fun to make. The tutorial is here, on Denyse Schmidt's website. I got to pull out some of my favorite fabrics- Modern Meadow, Riley Blake Wheels and All Star, Katie Jump Rope. Used some soft brown wool for the sides, and I love the final look and texture. All stuff from my stash! Used some buttons for eyes...not sure if I like the single vintage or stacked buttons best- votes? Then I got them each a real dog collar from my local dollar store for some authenticity!

The boys have made themselves quite at home....

...though someone might be a bit jealous ("Hey! That's MY spot!")


Time for a snack....

..."Back off! those are MY bowls!"
Do you boys need to go outside?
One of these little guys will be a Christmas gift for my 6 year old, Big G. He is my sentimental sweetheart who absolutely loves when I make things for him. I feel bad for him because I am always making things for his sisters- so many more options for the girls! But this one is just for him, and will also go great with his birthday quilt I am working on. The second Scottie will be adopted out to someone special on Christmas morning :-)

I am sorry I cannot make up my mind as to which eyes I like the best either. They are both so different so you'll have to just see what looks the best on an individual dog! They are both very cute, I love the pics of them next to the dog bowls!

These are sooo cute! When I saw the picture with them by the door my first thought was that these would make the cutest door stops! Just add lots of poly beads or something heavier when stuffing. Your real puppy is a cutie too! Visiting from Fabric Tuesday on a Quiltstory.

Oh gosh these are so darn cute! And you take such fun pictures that I feel like I get to play along too! I am sure your son will love it! As for the eyes, I can't decide.. they are both really neat!

Hmm, I wonder if my real dog would be jealous...I suspect my toddler would adore these - thanks for the link! These have been on my to-sew list for a while and I'd completely forgotten about them!
