Sewing Patchwork Dashingly Cute Dachshunds! 

I’m slowly starting to make a bit of a dent into my to do list – it maybe only a small dent but it’s all progress! The number of animal makes I have completed and have still yet to do is just insane, although finally they are starting to reduce in number and I have resisted adding any more – for now! I’ve managed to squeeze in this animal make before starting quite a big project I have been putting off for quite a while. I’m quite excited for this next make and surprisingly it’s not going to be animal related, although I have a feeling it’s going to be one of my biggest challenges I have taken on so far! However, back to this post and all of its animal cuteness!


I saw a pattern for these patchwork dachshunds in Love Patchwork and Quilting Magazine (Issue 8) – it’s actually the reason I bought the magazine! I have been looking forward to doing them for a while and after the success of the patchwork rabbits I was confident I could give them a go! I made one with pinks, blues and biege, and the other in blues, greens, and biege. These were small pieces of some of my favourite fabrics I have had leftover from other projects so was very happy to be able to use them.  

  
I think doing the rabbits first helped me a lot with doing these as I kind of knew what I was doing, rather than the unknown I experienced with the rabbits! I had no real problems at all, well until I sewed a head piece on upside down! But luckily I realised and got it sorted out without any trouble – the joys of unpicking! 

I knew these dogs would look cute, but I really couldn’t believe how cute they have come out, I know they are going to be very well lived in their new homes – although they will have a little wait until they go as these are part of my ridiculous number of Christmas makes!
