Nose

1. Cut out a nose shape from black felt.


2. With black crochet thread and a sharp needle, sew the nose felt piece on the tip of the snout, as shown in the
picture below. DO NOT sew the nose piece in the center; leave enough room to sew a mouth.

3. Right below the nose felt piece, continue sewing a mouth

4. Cut out a small tongue shape from pink craft felt, and set it aside. Gluing the tongue to the mouth should be
the last step to prevent it from falling off while working on other parts.

Putting Everything Together

1. Using a tapestry needle, sew the snout to the head. The top of the snout should start at R8 on the head. Make
sure to keep the snout as centered as possible between the eyes.

2. Sew the ears onto the head. Pinch the ears so that they become flat. The ears should be placed starting at R2
and ending at R5. Next, glue the pink ear felt pieces onto the ears.

3. Sew the head to the body.

4. Sew the arms vertically onto the body. The arms should be positioned right below the eyes. Arms DO NOT
need to be stuffed.
5. Position the legs horizontally and sew it to the body. Legs DO NOT need to be stuffed.

6. Cut out a tail shape from tan felt. Glue the tail between the legs on the back of the body.

7. The final step is to glue the pink felt tongue onto the mouth. Simply line the top edge of the tongue with craft
glue and place it in between the 2 black lines of the mouth. Hold in place for about 10 seconds and allow
enough time for it to fully dry.

8. Decorate your new pup and enjoy!


You can use the same pattern to make different dogs a well. Just change the ears and cut out different felt
patterns for coloring. These are some other dogs I’ve made using the same pattern.
