Make more than one style of puppy with this cute and easy PDF dog sewing pattern. It includes step-by-step photographs, detailed instructions and lots of tips from my years of doll making experience. I will also invite you to join a friendly and supportive Facebook group. Here you can watch video demonstrations, see dog dolls made by other customers and ask questions.

Experience sewing cloth dolls or making stuffed animal toys is not necessary. This dog sewing pattern is for confident beginners.

With this sewing pattern, you can design your own dog stuffed animal. There are three types of ears to choose from. You can choose to sew or paint the dog’s face using templates for open or closed eyes. There are templates and instructions to include an eye patch or sewn or painted spots on your dog. It includes clothes for your dog - choose from a sleeveless dress or romper and a bow, which can be used as a bow tie or placed next to the dog’s ear or on their dress.

A handmade dog doll makes a special gift for a dog lover, a birthday or Christmas. It could also be made as a dog loss memorial gift or it would make a cute nursery decoration for a new baby. 


Professional pattern and 60 pages of instructions...

  • Full-size pattern pieces that have been professionally drafted on a computer and include seam allowances
  • Lots of tips from my years of doll making experience

  • Templates to draw the dog's face and spots accurately
  • Access to a supportive and friendly Facebook community where I share video demonstrations, more tips and inspiration for making my animal doll patterns. Members can ask questions and share their dolls using my patterns

The dog doll can wear the same clothes as the dolls in my bunny and bear sewing patterns. They can also wear the daisy dress and Spring outfit
