It is very cute, but I formated on to MS paint and made it a little bigger. I love it! Next time I will try to make an "original" sized Jack Russel. Thanks for sharing!:P

How hard was this if you are an inexperienced seamstress? It is great.

I'm wondering which computer program you use to create your sewing patterns. Care to share?

Hi, your dog is great. I'm going to try and adapt it and make it a corgie(bit late for Kate but I've always wanted one). Your 3d bird is fabby and the dolphin is cute. The dolls looks so simple too, I think I shall do super hero ones. Your site is full of so many inspirational ideas. Keep up the good work!!!

I just made him using fleece scraps I had laying around and I think he turned out great for my first attempt at something so small! I think fleece would be a great cheap alternative to suggest!

I thought it was absurd that it was 5 cm, but after printing it out I just went to it. Totally didn't notice that I was suppose to resize is! LOL. The pattern is amazing but I ought to look at things more. (I tried resizing it on Paint but I forgot how to Print for there.)
