Made this for a friend who was ill, but by the time I finished it, she was well and back to work! Oh well, will give it to her next weekend when we go to the Scrapbook show in Pa. Used Double sided paper for the box part. Had enough to cover the flaps, but decided to used a matching solid I embossed, inked, and rubbed with Inca Gold colors to panel the bottom. Used lots of punches and dies. Very Springy! Currently working on my Hoffman Challenge Doll but also have to fit in a Bridal Shower card.

I am always fussing over the finishing touches on all my dolls, but I think I have finished him and his pet dog. Still mulling over a name though I have decided the dog is a bird dog named King. He is taking time to walk his dog, looking at his pocket watch. May give him a cane to hang on his wrist. Added the bird to King's crown. Did you notice the little blue jay tucked in below the feathers on his hat? He is 24", next will be a 19" but not a cat.

He is now attached to the base. He still needs a cane, spats, and oh yeah his Tail!!!! Tail fabric is ready to go but watching my grand son sleep right now so no access to a sewing machine. The dog needs his collar, chain and he also is getting a crown,

Ok. I am the first to admit I don't know what I was doing and still don't but if it looks like a dog...well maybe almost like a horse but Mr. cat now has a pet dog. Going to have to try making a few more before I can actually write directions. I started with a wire armature then covered it in felt then needle felted wool on. Think version 2will have a much smaller armature maybe just the legs and the body shape will be something that I can actually needle felt into! I forgot all about the owl class I took but then that was 1/4 the size of this. He comes almost to Mr. cat's thigh and he is a 24" version.

Here he is with head attached and partially dressed. The hat is hor size only, I will be constructing one slightly doffereng in shape. Hia pants have a satin stripe down the outside of the leg. His bow tie needs to be cut. Buttons need to go on his vest and cuffs and the the final piece, his jacket which will have tails besides his own!
