Commemorating a Beloved Pet

August 20, 2007

This was the second dog we made out of our Treasured Memory Bear pattern.

A good friend and his wife had to put their dog to sleep just before Christmas.  And while he knew he couldn’t get her another dog as a gift (they’d discussed it and decided to wait a while) he wanted to do something that acknowledged their loss.

So we made this dog out of several important fabrics:
   The green and blue plaid is fabric from the dog’s bed.
   The fabric for the paws is from the dog’s blanket.
   The tapestry fabric with the writing is from a pillow that the dog carried around.

Then we attached his leash and he gave the dog to his wife for Christmas.
