DIY Toto Dog

For Halloween this year, Audrey is going to be Dorothy.  She’s actually wearing the same costume that my mom made for me when I was a little girl!  Precious right?!  As I was searching the Halloween store for some ruby slippers to go with her costume, I came across this little Toto in a basket.  Because I am so cheap crafty, I decided to make my own.  Fabric of choice?  Felt of course!

I found an adorable pattern for a little Scotty dog here at allsorts.  I enlarged it a bit and changed the face and legs since apparently Toto is a Cairn Terrier (a little bit of trivia for the day).

He got two button eyes…

…and a red ribbon to match the ones that will be in Audrey’s hair.

He’s hand stitched using a blanket stitch and some embroidery floss.  Super cute right?!  Now your little Dorothy has no excuse for being without a Toto!

    • I didn’t make it the same size as a real dog, but definitely bigger than the original pattern. Send me an email and I can try to send you the file that I enlarged. cutesycrafts at hotmail dot com.
