SAUSAGE DOG is a fun, easy project for all abilities with clear step by step instructions and photos written by myself as wished as a beginner in sewing – a long time ago!
SAUSAGE DOG can be made up in any fabric. SAUSAGE DOG is a draft excluder with a soft filling, however the base is designed to be stable enough and with firm filling, to keep the Dog upright. There are 'Special Instructions' for patterned fabric if you wish to match the pattern across the back. Easy instructions are included to lengthen or shorten the body. Consisting of 9 pattern pieces and illustrated Sewing Instruction sheets which I've written to explain every step, sewing terms and techniques.
When made up SAUSAGE DOG is 24 cm from the highest point at the top of the head to the base. The body when stuffed will fill out to about 36 cms, measuring all around. This will depend on how compact the filling is. The length of the base of the body is 78 cm (the standard door measures 76cm). The chest and the head add another 18cms to the length, giving a total length of 96 cms.. All measurements are approximate and based on seam allowances as stipulated on the pattern and how compact the filling is.
Sausage Dog body can easily be made from 50 cms (20") of fabric at 114cms (45") wide or 65 cms of fabric for making ears, tail and insert the same as the body. Optional: extra fabric needed for pattern matching. For contrast, ears tail and insert can be made from a piece of fabric 25 cms (10") x 50 cms (20 cms) with a join in the insert, or 25 cm by 100 cms, no join. The stuffing is about 450 grms hollowfibre, flame retardent if purchased from reliable sources. All instructions included with pattern.
YOU MAY ALSO PURCHASE THE MADE UP SCOTTIE DOG DOOR STOP, CUSHION COVERS AND SAUSAGE DOG DIRECTLY FROM MYSELF all to match if you wish in the fabrics illustrated, polyester/cotton mix made to look and feel like wool but more durable and washable. Fillings are non allergic. See my other items for sale. Or, if you prefer, I can make up in a fabric of your choice. Please contact to discuss: Jenny.coombes [!at] ymail.com
