Stuffed Puppies

Anything lime green  I am all over it....

found this panel at Hancocks....what a fun baby quilt.  

I loved it so much that I went back and brought two more panels.





Started making these little puppies.  This one is made from my favorite muumuu that lost it's luster.



This is my first one....  This pattern is from  March 2014 Sewing World Magazine.

It took me forever (probably because I am not the sharpest knife in the drawer) but took me forever to figure out where to get the actual pattern page.  It comes to you digital and the pattern sheet is not sent with this.  You have to go to Sewing World click on pattern and then at the bottom page three.

Then (boy I have issues)....  I found the patterns but could not figure out what the base was.  So frustrating.  Then....I found the base on pattern insert 3.  Sheweee....  but I finally got it.  So it you are going to order this...you can learn from my time and frustrations.


This is sooooo cute, easy, and fun!!!.  Doesn't take long to make at all.

One thing I will suggest (like you asked for my suggestion)....reinforce your stitches around the neck and around the curve between the two paws and back stitch all of your seams especially where the tail seam is...just saying....will cause you less stress.

Barb, those puppies are so cute, I especially love the red one, great fabric. I'm a lime green lover too, it works so well with so many other colors.

After finding the pattern and looking at it, I see why you had issues. Golly Pete! You were persistent though, and did a great job.
