This puppy plush is adorable, soft and homemade from an old bath robe! I made the pattern from looking at my son's other stuffed animal & taking lots of measurements to make something similar. It wasn't as easy as I thought it would be! To make a super cute stuffed animal - it takes a few extra pattern pieces and a little bit of time. It is worth it though!

You can download all of the pattern pieces here in PDF form. Please note that the main body pieces are so large that they required four pieces of paper. Once you print them out, you'll need to lay them down and tape them together before cutting them out. Most of the other pieces are smaller and won't require anything but cutting and laying on your fabric. *In the photos, the puppy made was the white one! The brown one is the puppy I used to help make the pattern!

What You Will Need:
  • Fabric (an old robe or some other plush type of material would be ideal)
  • Stuffing or filling
  • Thread, Scissors, Pins & Sewing Machine
  • I recommend some type of black furry material for the nose - or you can embroider one on or use black felt - anything you choose - I used black fur
  • Eyes ( I used black buttons)

omg tnx

This is such an adorable idea!!! I need to make much smaller plush animals as they are going to be squeaker puppies for my two Chihuahuas. I have a gray robe and one dog is black/the other is white. It will look like they have a bunch of puppies!!!

I am going to attempt to do this. I was going to have a memory bear made from an old plush robe that was my sisters before she passed. They were 85.-90. Then I thought I would try to make one myself and then decided on a dog. It would be more special made by me then someone else. Wish me luck
