Hello wednesday - dog buttons

Morning everyone, how are you all today.
I am on the road again on our way to the Excel London Hobbycrafts show.

I am really excited I managed to do some sewing…………
…and I finished it!!

Look at my doggy cushion – do you like him?

Yes the doggy is made from buttons

He is from our NEW Silhouette dog ribbons.

Animal Silhouette Ribbons - Dogs

You can just see him on the red and the cream ribbon above.

I so enjoyed making this cushion that I am giving you the free template, so you can make one too.

Materials needed

Cushion cover or suitable fabric
Black felt
Black Basics 2 Go Buttons here
Dog Silhouette ribbon here (I used the cream colour)
Black thread and needle

Right click the template below and copy it to your computer.

Dog cushion template

Increase the template to the size that you require to fit your cushion and print out.
Place the template onto the black felt and cut around the outline.

Position felt onto your cushion and pin in place.

Now the fun begins……….start sorting through the black buttons and sewing them to the felt.
Fill the dog shape with buttons. I started on the outer edges and worked towards the centre.

I then trimmed the top and bottom of the cushion with the silhouette ribbons, stitching with black thread.

I folded a few bits of ribbon to make the dog tags

and sewed them into the side of the cushion.

I think I will have to make another one of these, I had so much fun.

If you want to see this cushion then I am taking it to the Hobbycrafts
show at Excel London,
