Since I made the dog piece to practice my machine stitching, I decide not to go crazy with it.
I thought it might make a nice pillow for Casey, so I added a saying and his name and his favorite things, a bone and lots of balls.
I used stuffing from an old pillow, so it is a bit lumpy, but I don't think he cares;)
If you would like to make your own dog piece or something to donate to your local shelter, you can get the pattern at Angie's Bits 'n pieces. You can find it under the free patterns.
And here he is, giving me his grin of approval.
