I was recently contacted by a previous client to see if I could make her a baby sweater and rattle set for her new baby girl. She wanted the sweater to feature an applique of a dog similar to her beloved little pet - a black half scottish terrier half cocker spaniel with a schnauzer haircut! We did a little digging and found a great applique at my favorite doggy-related Etsy store. The sweater turned out very sweet in red and white stripes with the black dog.
The rattle pattern was another Etsy find. While the seller of the pattern does not allow them to be made for sale in large quantities, she granted me permission to make one for my client. Such a cute cute pattern! I was a little confused by the sewing on of the legs of this guy, but once I got it all tacked down I was very satisfied. And best of all, the client was very happy with how it turned out!
