Felt Dachshund by Staceys Craft Designs

Some people don’t want their dog to sit on the sofa. But this doggie is just made for it and is a welcome alternative as it’s not smelly or loses any hair. And because this dog has only two legs he must lean against the backrest not to fall over.

This flat fluffy animal is made by cutting the contour of a dog out of felt. Do this twice and sew them together. By adding a little bit of cushion filler, ears and a tail it gets some three dimensional allure. If you like dogs but for some reason you can’t have one, just make a fun long Dachshund or any other breed you like. Just make sure you have enough fabric and cushion filler if you decide to make a real size Newfoundlander.
