Doug the Dog..

May 18, 2010

Just a wee departure from retro CLOTHES…
I thought I would share with you my progress thus far with making this adorable little dog for my nephew from my 1954 pattern.
i have cut out the cat too – out of turqoise cord.

Cant wait to make the rest of the set!
  1. I too just picked up this pattern. For a dime this past weekend at the flea market, I couldn't pass it up. I can't wait to see how the rest turn out!

  2. Oh heavens, that dog is so adorable. I think I need that pattern. Please post pictures of the others when you finish them!


  3. Hey girls, The pattern is SUPER easy, it takes very little time to cut out and to make up, a tip.. they have gone overboard on the markings that you need to transfer and i found lots were unnessecary as its quite clear what goes where just from the notches, so next time i wouldnt bother transfering so many.

  4. I remember that pattern–my mother made the horse out of velveteen! I think this is one of the retro patterns Simplicity has reissued.
