A couple of months ago I happened on a plush pattern from Anna Griffin. To say that I was excited would be a complete understatement. This pattern was the most adorable Scottie dog in a brilliant ribboned cape. If our Scottish Terrier, Finnigan, has taught us anything, it’s that we’re Scottie people, through and through. I knew I had to have it!
Now that the weather is cooling down, and I’m spending more time inside than outside, I decided to give this pattern a go. I selected a rather ornate fabric and set out to cutting pieces. A few of the items like the tail, ears and foot pads are a bit small, so you have to take your time when putting them together. Thankfully Anna’s directions were very thorough, for which I’m very appreciative. I certainly would have gotten lost or at the least, sewn the head on backwards if it were not for the excellent diagrams included with the pattern.
When I was sewing it, because I’m used to larger quilt pieces, I had to take apart a few seams. There’s a lot of intricate curves and quick turns. Overall, though, it went together really quickly, and I’m very pleased with the outcome. I’m still not sure how Finnigan feels about having another Scottie in the house, but I think he’ll manage.
