Zippered Critters

DSCN6101I found a cute pattern to make zippered stuffed animals (cats or dogs).  Since I have always had dogs, I make the dog pattern.  The pattern is from Indygo Junction – Zippered Critters.  My dog is about 8 inches tall and 5 inches wide.  I used different scraps of fabric and buttons from my mom’s button collections.  I also used some “Cuddle soft” fabric from Shannon fabrics.  I put the dark brown cuddle fabric on the back and a strip on the front of the dog’s face.  The zipper is used for the mouth and is a pocket.  This dog could be used for a tooth fairy pillow.  It was a fun pattern to make and mix and match the fabrics.  Lots of possibilities for lots of fun.  I haven’t made any stuffed animals since my kids have been young – probably about 25 years ago.   Donna
