Chenille Scottie Dog Stuffies

2-DSCF0492More sewing with scraps.

1-DSCF0490These cute little Scotties were made using my abundant stash of chenille bedspread scraps. They were the perfect project for those chenille scraps I just couldn’t throw away after finishing something else.

3-DSCF0494Why Scotties? Well, I love anything vintage and I’ve been seeing a resurgence of them a lot lately. So much so that I had to do a little research on when they were previously popular. You know how things seem to come back in style…look at owls. Anyway, I discovered that the 1930s, 40s and 50s were these little pups decades to shine. Wow! It’s been quite a while for their rebirth.

1-DSCF0496Just like my woolie birds, I used an applique for my pattern.

Enjoy!

  1. Oh my goodness, these absolutely tug at my heart! Scotties were so popular when I was a kid growing up in Kansas City, MO. Neighbors on the block West of us had two of them, and they were often seen running around the vacant lot behind their house, which was directly across the street from us. I love animals, and I was fascinated by those little things! Thanks for sharing these…they are adorable

  2. Scotties were something Mary Engelbreight used in her magazine and illustrations quite often, so cute. My brother and sil had a couple a few years ago. They’re such cute little critters. I’m going to have to find a template for these guys and the birdies you made. You just keep coming up with more and more cute stuff. Don’t have any more chenille from bedspreads but do have some from small pieces that used to be sold kind of like fat quarters a few years ago, I made bathroom curtains out of couple pieces I had. I’ll have to see what I can find in my stash. Awesome projects.
