Crocheted Baby Puppy Dog Outfit
This adorable little puppy dog outfit was inspired from a picture of a pattern that I saw on pinterest, and is sold on esty. I did not buy the pattern but used free patterns and revised it to match a stuffed puppy.
You can use any newborn hat pattern, or try this one from Repeat Crafter Me. Or this one from Heart Hook Home. The eye spot and nose were easy circles crocheted and sewn on, with buttons for the eyes. There are several patterns for the type of ears I did, like this one at Alleys Site.
I could not find the pattern I used for the diaper cover. However you could use this one by Crochet A Flower, or you can search for another one. Having never made one before, and after seeing how it fit my grandson, I would make the next one with a narrower leg hole.
For the puppy dog tail and patch I chained to the width I wanted, then I decreased as I went up to form a triangle, using double-crochets. The tail was just a small circle that I did not increase til I got the length I wanted. Then I decreased at the bottom, sewed it on, and stuffed it with batting.
My little grandson was not very happy during part of his pictures, but they are so sweet when they cry.
