This sewing project shows you how to sew a Little Scotty dog toy pattern using basic sewing techniques.
Start by printing off these pattern pages. The pages should be re-sized to fit flush on an a4 sized paper.
Sew the ears and tail together and turn right side out.
Now sew the two outer body pieces together as shown in the diagram. Beginning at the top neck section and ending just below the tail area.(Sew the tail in place as you go, remember the tail should be facing inwards as you will turn it right side out later)
Stitch the underbodies together leaving a gap for filling. Stitch your under body to the outer body as shown in the diagram.
Sew both head pieces together at the front only as shown in diagram 5
Stitch the head gusset to both sides of the head. Remembering to put your ears in place as you go (facing inwards)
Turn the head right side out.
Keeping the head right side out, slip it inside the body pieces
(which is still wrong side out) see diagram 7
Stitch the head to the body and pull all the pieces through the gap in the under body.
Fill with wadding, nice and firm and sew up the gap underneath.
Make your eyes and nose by embroidering them onto the face this will make it safe for children. Place a ribbon around the neck to finish off.
