I know how much she looooves her dog, so I knew I wanted to find just the right fabric. And I did! There's a little dog on it that looks just like Truffles.
I drew a larger version of the dog onto a white piece of fabric that was backed with interfacing for stability, and then "drew" the dog face on it with black thread. I can't believe how easy it was!
And I love the way they turned out.
And so did my friend. And hopefully Truffles will love to sleep on it.
I made the back simple, because I figured that she would put the back face up for the dog to sleep on.
I also added some bones and paw prints into the free motion quilting. And her name is in the center square.
It was fun trying something new. I think I'll add this type of sewing into more projects!
Linking up today at CrazyMomQuilts. Enjoy your weekend!
