As I was sitting here, searching for the best stuffed dog patterns, I’ve had the song “Dogs are the best people” by The Fauves stuck in my head (and I have no idea when the last time I heard that song was!).
My son loves a dog plushie. I have no idea how many are piled up on his bed. There’s Woofie, Digs, Daddy Digs, Flat Puppy and that’s just the ones I can remember off the top of my head.
Sewing up a new puppy is just the easiest gift to make him (although he’s ten now, so I’m not sure how much longer that’s going to last!).
