|My first Scotty Dog- made from Isle of Skye tartan|
There's lots of heather in Scotland, so I thought I'd adapt the Scotty Dog pattern to make a doorstop.
|I sketched out a new pattern piece so the scotty wouldn't have any legs.|
If you have a go at this, make sure you leave a big gap on the top to get your sandbag in (I left from the tip of the tail to its neck). Once the bulgar wheat bag was in, I used stuffing to fill up the rest of the Scotty.
|Check out my leather thimble I got for Christmas! You'll also notice a chopstick on the table- essential ear and tail poking out equipment.|
|He's even spottier on the other side.|
Thanks Hillarys for the fabric (and for getting me to explore the dark recess of my kitchen cupboard).
