It's All about the Dog

Two fun doggie projects recently, altho this first one for a sad occasion. When a dear friend's beloved black lab went to Dog Heaven too soon, I wanted her to have a stuffie she could hug.
I made one of my Dilly Dogs using a really nice black wool suiting, a hot-washed wool scarf for the ears and hearts, and one of my fave vintage trims for his collar. When she first opened the gift she burst into tears! But now he's bringing cheer and comfort.

Then this Sleepy Dog set was commissioned by a relative. Light blue seersucker (really hard to photograph for some reason) with cotton velvet ears & heart. I was so late getting to it that I made a lined drawstring bag-bed too...
I hope the baby-boy recipient will have lots of fun and cuddles with his Sleepy Dog! xo
