Pattern Notes
The pieces are worked in the round so there is very little sewing up.
Each round is joined using a sl st. When joining each round, sl st to first dc, work 1ch (which is not counted as a st), then always work the first dc of the following round in the same st at base of 1ch. This will maintain the correct number of stitches.
When stuffing the toy, tease out little bits of stuffing at a time, this will ensure a smooth and lump-free shape to the finished project.
Safety Notes
If you intend giving the toy to a young child then please make sure all parts are sewn on very firmly and regularly check that parts are fully attached.

To Make Up
Stuff body firmly and mould into an egg shape. Stuff front legs, but not too firmly. Sew legs to body, placing them in a forward position as the puppy is lying down. Using Black yarn, embroider the claws as follows: flatten the front of the legs a little, embroider lines through the legs to represent the claws. Stuff the back legs in the same way, adding a little extra to the feet to create shape.
Sew one leg to either side of body, use photo as a guide if needed. Using Black yarn, embroider claws in a similar way to the front legs, but do not flatten the paw, just sew through it. Stuff head, leaving base open. Take muzzle and
stuff, forming a round cup shape. Sew onto front of the head.
Sew nose in place on muzzle, using photo as a guide if needed. Fold the ears flat so that you have a double thickness of fabric and sew one to each side of the head. Embroider eyes. Make circles with black to begin with, then using white
to outline them. Sew head to body using the open base to steady the head. Remember your
puppy is lying down so his head needs to be angled to one side and will rest on his front paws. Sew the spots in random places on his body. Stuff the tail and sew to the back of the body, curl it over slightly to give a nice shape. Sew the collar around the puppy’s neck.
