I’ve had this idea for a pull-along sausage dog in my head for over a year. There was a time when my little munchkin was obsessed with anything he could pull or push along and I just think there’s nothing cooler than a sausage dog at the mo. Sausage shapes and socks are best friends so the body is super easy and the ears naturally stick out a little which I love. The tricky part with this one is getting him on wheels. What you can see in this picture is the first attempt disaster with plastic wheels and the shape is a little wonky – it’s actually really hard to find big wooden wheels in hobby stores. Eventually I found some wooden wheels with axles and am experimenting with attaching those to the base… oh I really hope this one works! If all goes well with the wheels in the next couple of days I’ll have a pattern ready for testing by the end of the week and ready for Stitches & Craft in Sydney and Melbourne.
Since 2007 Craft Schmaft, by Claire Waring, has been a blog dedicated to making happy. Here I share my love of sewing, stitching and all things handmade. You’ll also find inspiration, travel tales, craft fails and a rather large fabric addiction.
