My son recently decided that his dad really needs a stuffed animal of his own (to take to work with him). He came up with the idea while I was tucking him in and was so into it that he woke J. up to ask him what his favorite mammal is. “Dog” was the answer.
He created a drawing of a brown dog with a white spot and we went from there. He wanted it to be a 3-D puppy similar to the one my daughter and I made last year.
I wanted it to be a little better made than that one and found a pattern online to work from. I enlarged it and got to work 🙂
My son decided to stick with the brown and white theme and picked out the felt. When I was done sewing it, he was so excited to give it to J.
