Bow Wow Pincushion for the Dog Days of August

Wow, I barely made it in time for August.  I've been trying all month to get this one done.  But, I kept on changing the design and having to start over.  Well, that's the way it is sometimes.  Here it is at last!!!  Click on the picture above and it will take you to the PDF file.  I not only did a pattern for you but a tutorial.

August is known for being the Dog Days of Summer, at least up here in the northern hemisphere.  So what better way to celebrate August than with a dog pincushion.  I have done two versions.  One with a long snout, short tail and short ears.  The other with a short snout, long tail and long ears.  What fun it would be to mix and match.  I noticed that if I had shortened the long ears just a tad, he would look just like my Chihuahua.  I may have to do another just for her.

Hope you had a happy August!!!
