Set tails wagging with this canine collection of easy sewing patterns for adorable dog designs, all made using simple hand-sewing techniques.

The only materials you'll need are felt, a needle and some threads, brads for eyes, a little stuffing and some wool roving if you want to add some fluffy fur to your dogs. To make your dogs you'll use are blanket stitch and running stitch and a couple of basic embroidery stitches, all of which are explained and illustrated for beginners.
The finished little pups make cute brooches, bag charms and home accessories, or can even be scaled up to make bigger plushes, all of which will make your dog-loving friends drool.
