Rag Puppy Quilt

Hello, I'm back with a fun article.
I just finished this Rag Puppy quilt. Here he is with his ears down and then pinned back so you can see his whole face. I made him entirely of flannel and used as many prints as I could. He measures 60 inches long by 50 inches from paw to paw. His exact measurements are....chest 31, hips 33, he has no waist what-so-ever lol.

 He was a lot of fun to make and some kid will hug up with him by the end of this month. He is so cuddly that I am loathe to let him go. His nose and eyes are sewed on by machine, I don't applique. Then I used some Decoart SoSoft Fabric paint to add the highlights to the eyes, I used an Identi-pen to go over the smile lines. .

I washed him and dried him to make him rag up. The more you wash him the more his edges will rag up. If you turn him over, he has different fabric behind also. I might paint a cat face on that side.

This is a Simplicity pattern that is out of print now.

Hello Bloggers, it’s been a while since I posted on here, so I thought I would return now and then for those of you who don’t do Facebook lol.

This is Max, a beautiful, colorful, African Flower Bulldog. He is crochet using the African Flower Motif, not a granny square. He is made with, hexagons, pentagons, triangles, octagons, squares, and the seven petal one…..

I know he looks complicated but he is very doable. The instructions and illustrations are excellent. Anyone who crochets can do this. The designer for this pattern is, Heidi’s Bears.

I will show you several areas of his body so you can see how he comes together. He is bigger than the pattern because I don’t listen very well lol.

He is supposed to be made with fingering yarn and a 1.75 crochet hook but I had all this needle point yarn and had to use a larger needle, so there you have it.

I love him! I love his large size, he make a statement and sure shows of all my lovely colors.
