I was fascinated over sewing a plush toy after had a great pleasure on making turtle pincushion sewing kit, piggy pillow and tiger softies. To keep the momentum going and trying out others free pattern, I searched around and found this little puppy plush toy in Woman’s Day (Get the free pattern & instructions here). This puppy is too cute to let go, so… a pair of them were born here, a male and a female puppy. I added a yellow tie for the male puppy. Aren’t they a lovely couple???
Update [05 December 2012]:
From the paragraph above, I hope that I have clearly stated that I am not the original designer for this puppy plush toy, I never think of claiming any credit or confuse you that it is my design. When I saw the pattern at Woman’s Day, they didn’t link to the original writer of this pattern as it is part of the book publisher marketing to promote the book. So, I wasn’t informed that My Little Mochi is the original designer. Woman’s Day just mentioned that the pattern is from a book: More Softies Only a Mother Could Love: 22 Hapless but Lovable Friends to Sew and Crochet. Today, the original designer, My Little Mochi, wrote to me and asked me to remove the tutorial pictures and credit her when she found out that my Puppy Plush Toy photos are on the hit in Pinterest. So, here is the credit back to her, but, no… I am not going to remove the progress photos as they are my own photos to show you how I made the puppy, it is my property and not copied from My Little Mochi. Well…. I know the intellectual property copyright very well and I hate when people steal from me, in this case, I am not stealing, it is just due to a misunderstanding for the matter of fact that I wasn’t well informed about who is the original writer of this book. I didn’t offense or steal any of them, this is just sharing, you will still have to go back to Woman’s Day to get the pattern and detail instruction. If “My Little Mochi” doesn’t like the pattern to be shared in Woman’s Day for free and let crafters to make it and show off, that’s too bad, she has to talk to her book publisher in the first place!

Also, I made and contributed 5 of the female puppies to a charity event to raise fund for the hearing impaired student in my country. I am glad to have some of them sold to help in raising the fund…. or fun?
As usual, here are my tutorial or pictorial but you must read the full print-out detail because my photos go with that instruction steps.
