Item details

My mom tells me stories about the pet dachshund her family had when she was growing up. His name was Meatball and in the winter he used to sit on the heat grate in the living room until he was truly a hot dog! Dachshunds are adorable dogs and I designed this one in honor of Meatball.

Meet Darcy the Dachshund!

This listing is for a digital PDF sewing pattern. It will be emailed to you immediately after purchase.

To make a dachshund you'll need:
*1/4 yard of fabric for the body (fleece or quilting cotton both work great!)
*a scrap of contrasting fabric to line the ears
*scraps of black and white felt for the eyes and nose OR a pair of 8mm safety eyes in black and a 13mm brown oval safety nose
*fiberfill stuffing, 4.5 ounces (I like fiberfill because it is easy to find and washable)
*6 inches of ribbon
*coordinating thread
*black and white embroidery floss, 18 inches of each

The finished puppy is 12 inches long x 7 inches tall.

This pattern is perfect for you if you've sewn a few stuffed animals and are ready to try one with darts and gussets. Don't worry! I take you through every step with clear and thorough written instructions and photos. These design elements make this puppy truly three-dimensional!
