Make it a Canine Christmas! DIY Dog Ornaments

It's a Doggy Christmas

We are hosting a Christmas Tree at the Historic Market House in Meadville, PA this year. The theme is "Winter Tales" .. so how about some Dog TAILS!  Sue has put the word out for donations of small stuffed dog ornaments to make this a tree "Gone to the Dogs".

I started poking around for an easy pattern to make my own stuffed dog and found lots of ideas!  I figured that other dog lovers might appreicate these, too.

If you are feeling crafty, why not make a dog or two!  If you are in our area and want to have your pup included on our tree, we need them by November 24th.  For more information email Sue at .  Find out more about this event and so much more going on at the Conneaut Lake Bark Park at

Here are the cute felt dogs I found:
This one is for a key ring, but it's perfect for an ornament!

The author of this site also shows how she made a custom made pattern for her "mutt" from a photo.

The crafter at Rag Doll Rising created the pattern for "Sparky".  I think he is adorable!

North East of Eden has the pattern for Get Along Little Doggies.  I love the "homemade" look of this!

I would use this pattern with white felt and color in a pattern for a beagle or spaniel!  Stuffed Dog pattern

I found this pattern on!  Let it Snow Dog pattern

This pattern is for a felt dog magnet, but I think it would be very simple to eliminate the magnet and insert a piece of ribbon to hang it on your tree!  Felt Dog Magnet

This pattern's title is Pet Labrador, no picture but there is a link on the site:

And ... I found some additional dog and puppy craft ideas on Squidoo:
