Spotted dog ... WIP for Laura

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%.

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!

 I will be updating as I go  ... so check back again ...
