Scottie Dog


my oldest was really interested in doing a sewing
project, so i thought the SCOTTIE DOG pattern by
Denyse Schmidt would be a perfect
pattern to start out with.
he sewed all the squares together a few weeks ago and
today, thanks to the snow, we were able to finish the rest.
i quilted the top and bottom with a thin batting because
it is made out of his dad's old shirts and i wanted it to last.
i really like the way the quilting turned out. the minky
is soft and pretty but i think if i were to do it again i would try to
use a different fabric for the strip. i used fusible interfacing
to take some of the stretch out of the fabric, but i
still found it difficult to match up the front and back.
but he turned out SO cute!

it was a FUN way to spend the day!

i already have takers for a robot from my younger son.

one at a time... that way it doesn't feel to overwhelming
to teach them how and your able to spend
quality time with just them!

p.s. the snow is starting to melt!! yahoo!
