Welcome to Sewspire!
Today I am here to show you how to sew this adorable stuffed dachshund dog. This particular design is an original Andrea Chapman freehand sketch that I created for my eldest daughter Ashley. The dog was a gift to her durning a difficult heartbreak and continues to serve as a reminder that time does heal all things. I am confident the same compassion will be infused in your project and together we can lift up many hearts!
To begin you will need to download and print the 3 page Free PDF Dachshund Pattern above. Simply click on the image to proceed.
In the project video I will show you how to cut, transfer and sew the pattern. For this project you will need a 1/2 yard of cotton fabric remnants and some stuffing.
The finished dog measures approximately 18″ x 9″.
In the near future I will be creating sewing kits for this project as well as a few one of kind finished pieces. I will be sure to let you know when those are available for you to purchase. If you would like to preorder either the kit or the finished dog you can do that here:
In the meantime, I will be back next week with another inspired sewing project. Until then, please know the creative genius in me salutes the creative genius in you!
P.S. Please join me in congratulating Robin Keller the lucky winner of the one of a kind patchwork tote bag I made in our last sewing tutorial. If you would like to enter my weekly happy mail drawing you can do so here. If you live in the Northern Virginia area and would like to take an in studio sewing class, I am offering this project as a Summer 2017 Class.
