This year I did an ornament exchange with some friends and friends of friends. It has been really fun going to the mailbox each day to find a beautiful handmade ornament waiting for me. For mine I made these little scotty dogs and I thought I would share them with you.
When I was young I loved scotty dogs (although I am no longer much of a pet person) and one of my most memorable Christmas gifts ever was receiving a stuffed animal scotty dog from my parents. So the sentiment in me decided to stick with the theme.
I used this free pattern online from www.allsorts.typepad.com and just shrunk it down in size quite a bit. While a bit time consuming, they were very easy to make and I am so happy with the way that they turned out.
Here they are ready to post. To package them I just cut up some old paper shopping bags and stitched around the edges to seal them.
