It’s time for our Friday Fiver again — and it’s the cutest softest most adorable thing on four legs! Please allow me to introduce Darcy the Dachsund by Abby Glassenberg Design!
The PDF pattern for this pup is automatically delivered as soon as you purchase, so you’ll have your paws on it immediately. (Sorry, had to say that. My sense of humor is ruff around the edges.) My favorite part of this design is the ears – I’ll have so much fun picking the fabric for those!
My puppy-loving girls need this one for Christmas! I’m writing this post while they’re at school and can’t peer over my shoulder – that’d turn into immediate begging. And that’s why I chose this pattern to ask Abby to share as a Fiver, it’s just soooo cute. Abby’s attention to detail and skill at describing the steps in softie making shine in this one. Isn’t that what we all learn as we go when buying PDF patterns? The voice of the designer comes through as you work, and it can be so much more satisfying than working with a big pattern company’s product. You’ll find a sample page from the pattern in the shop listing as well as some photos of the finished product in hand for scale.
Only a 1/4 yard of fleece and a 12″ x 14″ piece of fabric for the ears is required. I haven’t yet sewn one pattern for all 3 of my girls, but this may be where I start just to avoid any arguing over them.
Head on over to Abby Glassenberg Design and snap up Darcy – we’re putting this to bed in just 24 hours! No coupon code needed. Have a dog-loving friend who needs to know about this pattern? Bark at ’em fast! They’ll wag back! And maybe lick your face. You know, depending on the friend.
As usual, this Friday Fiver deal begins at 6 am Friday and ends at 6 am Saturday, September 6, 2014.
