Scottie Dog Ornament

When I was a little girl, I had a red, black and white plaid purse that had little Scotties on it. I took it with me everywhere.

After all, I would never want to be stuck somewhere without my seven pennies or Happy Meal toy.

Ever since, I've loved Scottie dogs... and they just seem so Christmas-y to me.

Since I'm participating in an online gift exchange over at Craftaholics Anonymous (and the recipient of my gift said she collects Scotties...ooh I want to do that), this is what I came up with.


I found a traceable pattern at Allsorts, here. Note that this is for felt--no seam allowances.

Instead of making a 3-D dog, I opted for a simple 2-D ornament.

I used miniature buttons for eyes, added a ribbon leash and finished him off with a felt Christmas rose.

Little guy, you are not going to be easy to part with.

That's it. 

I'm getting my purse back out.
