What feels like eons ago, but was actually about 6 years ago now, I stitched up a little puppy for my first ever niece. (More on the back story of said puppy and my attempt at making some jammies for it can be found here.) My skills back then were not amazing, but as I have always had a love of making things I found and picked up this little make it yourself puppy kit at the Hob-Lob.
It was designed to be made by an 8 year old.
Well, she loved it and loved it and loved it some more. It has always been on the top of the MUST HAVE list for bedtime friends. And after 5 years it was really starting to show. (I made it before she was born, hence the 5 and not 6 full on years of loving.)
You can't completely tell from that photo, but the side of puppy's neck was wide open and stuffing had come out the side. The sweet little nose was misshapen from years of puppy hugging from my niece.
She hugged him.
See you in about 6 months little friend.
