Laura requested a spotted dog from her crosscut mink scraps ... great choice because I love making my spotted dogs! I enlarged my dog pattern to make a dog as large as possible from the remaining scraps. I managed to enlarge my original dog pattern by 30%.
I will be updating as I go ... so check back again ...
|A pile of pattern pieces|
As you can see I tried to cut out a mix of black and white.
|I still hand sew the entire dog ... this is the most time consuming part ...|
but there are so many tricky darts and other areas that need intricate joining
that hand sewing is my only choice.
|So far the head is looking great!|
