Christmas Craft: Scottie Dog from a charm pack
This craft was one of the I-must-have-that things I got at the Houston Quilt Festival. He's made from two Moda Aspen Frost Mini Charm Packs.
When I bought the charm packs, the instructions came free.
I layed out my squares so the colors and patterns looked nice and random.
Then I sewed them into strips (turns out vertical strips work better than horizontal), and sewed the strips together.
I attached the two sides with a strip of red fabric. The fabric got all wonky the first time and I had to take it apart and redo it. Lots of pins helped the second time around.
I finished his look with a velvet ribbon and a button eye!
Isn't he cute on our sofa?
