How to make a Scottie dog Christmas tree decoration

Adore your dog? There’s no reason why your furry friend can’t take a starring role in your Christmas tree scheme this year.
Follow our step-by-step guide to making a gorgeous dog decoration for the festive season.
 
Here’s how to make it:
Take two layers of felt. Draw around a card template of your Scottie dog (or favourite breed!).
Pin the layers together and cut out your shape. Choose fabric for your dog’s coat, and follow the above steps.
Glue the coat onto the dog and sew the two layers of felt together, leaving a gap for the stuffing.
When stuffed, sew the decoration together and glue on a button for an eye.
