The Pups Are Here! Finally, yay!

Ah, the pups are finally totally completed. Woohoo! I finished them on Monday actually but I've been waiting for some nice weather to take photos outside. It's nice today but still drenched out so in the end I decided I couldn't wait to post any longer - photo shoot on the couch! These pups are made with white baby boucle and beige/tan double knitting/sport weight yarn. They have plastic button eyes and are filled only with poly-fill. Unfortunately they can't really stand or sit on their own. Maybe the next time around I'll pay more attention to that during the design phase. Their clothes are made from cotton scraps. Both vest and dress were inspired by the pattern at Molly Chicken and can be found in her January archives under the blog entry "All Dressed Up". I didn't actually sew my ribbon on like she did. Instead I made the pattern a little "larger" so that I could turn down some fabric to style a collar where the ribbon runs through. The ribbon is basted on only at one pt in the middle of the collar behind the neck. Oh yeah, they are about 8 inches from tip toe to noggin top. Hope you like! (^-^)*
note: I'm still having problems with posting multiple photos per blog. It makes the text disappear. You can view more pup photos at my flickr page. Click on the Flickr badge in the sidebar and it will take you there!
