'How Much Is That Doggy In The Window?'
Well this one might not have a waggly tail (sorry if you don't know the song!), but I still love his cute stumpy one!
Using Denyse Schmidt's pattern, I dipped into my 'scrap vomit' box of random 2.5" squares and rustled this Scottie Dog up in an evening!
I was anticipating sewing on the orange gusset to be tricky and fiddly, and guess what? IT WAS!!
But amazingly, there was no unpicking required and I'm pretty happy with how the awkward corners turned out.
So Scrappy Scottie is now on his way to my daughter's doggy loving friend, for her 13th birthday! I definitely want to make more of these, but might try out a few ideas on how to put the gusset on more easily.
