Finshed Old Red dog

I had some fun with this McCall's pattern, I used some red rayon stretch fabric that was textured bumpy and fur like . I made the body out of this fabric and then I used my wood wax stain to make the dog look stained and old looking. I took the wood wax and a old cloth and rubbed a a dab of wax onto the fabric, the effect came out pretty interesting looking. I filled the dog with fiber fill and sewed blue buttons on for eyes, added the bow which is sewn into the head a bit, finally I used 4 strands of black cotton floss to create the nose.
It was a simple pattern with a new idea to create an aged old red dog, this is not for a small child but for those who are older but still young at heart.
