Personalised Dog Toy

It's so cute #MakeItToday

Here’s what you’ll need:

Step 1 - Take your two pieces of paw pals fabrics 18” x 6” and fold them in half, right sides together, creating a piece that’s now 9” x 6”.

Step 2 - Using a 2.5 x 3” oval, and over lapping them slightly, create the end of the dog bone, then add the middle part by measuring a 2 ¾” wide by 3.5” length, draw this out on paper/card and cut out. Draw around your template on the fold, with your fabric marker, and cut out, adding a ¼” seam allowance all the way round.

Step 3 - Take some sharp scissors and make small snips around all the curved edges.

Step 4 - Once all your pieces are prepared, begin cross stitching your dog’s name on the aida band, don’t forget the cute paw prints either side 😊 Easiest way to do this is with some graph paper first…

Step 5 - Using white thread, Sew your aida in place using a zig zag stitch all the way round, I used a small dab of glue to hold this is place while I sewed around it. I also used fray check on the ends and tucked each end under.

Step 6 - Sew your two dog bones, right side together, leaving a 2-3” gap along one of the straight edges. Turn right way out, press and stuff. Using a ladder stitch sew up the gap.

And your toy is ready to be played with…
