French Poodle

I have finally finished one of the dogs! Everything seems to be going so slowly but I’ve got the clothing patterns mostly figured out so hopefully it will speed up from here. I have been having a bit too much fun with the accessories… I spent most of today working on felt hat ideas. Anyway, here he is- a dapper Parisian Poodle, doing his shopping for the day.

He has a cigarette because of course he smokes.

He has a blue linen jacket over a cashmere striped sweater. He has a linen bag for his shopping. You can see his baguette peeking out of the bag. His jacket pockets hold a handkerchief and a small notebook.

And here is a close-up of all his stuff- the baguette, a cheese wedge, a bottle (wine?), an apple, a salami, a notebook, a handkerchief, a felt hat, a linen shopping bag.

I wish I had a beautiful Spring background for him but we are not there yet here in Boston.

This is the first dog I’ve finished that has removable clothing. It is fun to work on figuring out new fashions.
