Browsing around the internet, I came across some super cute Christmas tree ornaments of dogs made from felt, and thought....'how easy these would be to make'!
Another quick internet search yielded some a DIY post from Spabettie, dachshund lover extraordinaire, who has some very nice instructions for making this uber cute felt dog using only embroidery thread, scissors, a needle, stuffing and felt!
Here's a tip in making the template for your dog. Find a photo of your dog taken from the side, print it out on regular paper and trace their outline to make a great template for use in this DIY project.
Classic Hound also has some great instructions that you may want to check out, too.
Enjoy, have fun, and remember to reuse old materials you have around the house if you can!
