I bought this stuffed animal kit when it was on sale at the AQS store because it looked so cute! I thought it would be a fun project and a nice gift.
It’s called “Puppy Dog Pete” and it’s an original design of Pauline McArthur of the Funky Friends Factory.
I don’t usually do much of this kind of sewing but the pattern was easy to follow and had helpful photos and illustrations.
First, I cut out all the pieces.
And followed the instructions for sewing the pieces together in the correct order.
When I got to the step of adding the button eyes and sewing on the nose; I felt a little like Geppetto. My little dog was coming to life!
Adding the head to the body was the hardest step. It was just some awkward sewing but not too bad.
Then he got stuffed and sewn up tight.
How cute is this puppy? I cut the pieces one day and sewed him the next day. It really is an easy project.
Now he’s on his way to a new home.
Maybe you would like to make your own Puppy Dog Pete? There are many projects similar to this one; both patterns and kits on the Funky Friends Factory website.
