I Still Make Things! Honest!



These little tiny guys are from the super cute Japanese craft book, 'Mame Wanko', I got when Futuregirl was in town.



I made them to keep my son and nephew company while they are at my mom's house for 2 weeks, for art camp and some grandparent time.



These guys are about 3 inches tall and I made them out of felt before I attempt the fancy mohair versions featured in the book. I made the aptterns bigger by about 100% for what they were in the book and can't even imagine how you would stuff their bitty legs if you didn't.

Great book though. I expect to have a tiny pack of breed specific pups by the end of the summer!

I'm usually not a tiny dog fan, but these little guys are killing me they're so cute. Maybe it's because they can't yip.

Oh, how cute! I've been looking for a Chihuahua pattern for a while, but it seems like everything is for the standard floppy-eared dog, or else it looks like a cat instead! ><
