Piece dogs together as shown in picture, and measure solid blocks to be the same as the dogs. You can make your border however thick or thin you want. to put the nose on you have to attatch the fusible web and iron it to the dog and do a blanket stitcharound the nose to keep it from coming up. Also I stuff the tongues with some batting my son loved helping me with this step! I have made this quilt as pillow cases too and used different color bottons for the eyes and it is very cute too!
