The dog family embroidery design is simple to make up as a group of three dimensional felt figures. They work as toys or as charming little companions around the house. They have articulated limbs which means you can pose them in different ways.
With the download template you can make up as many adult dogs and puppies as you want. Choose your own felt and threads to get the colours you like best, and follow the stitch map to give a folk embroidery look, or make up your own! For the animals in the pictures I have used 3 strands of stranded embroidery thread to embroider the dogs, polyester stuffing, and some scraps of wool felt, though I do prefer heathered felt which has a lovely texture.
