I had a fun week creating a wiener wonderland here. I was constantly thinking about the next wonderful wiener I was going to make, whether for Halloween or Christmas. I started with some Christmas wienies.
This is my very warn, holey pattern for the minis.
A close up of how bad it looks! I really need to make another before this totally disintegrates! The tail is about off.
These are my sophisticated stuffing tools. They were free.
I started with Christmas doxies. If you have a red wiener dog...
you must also have a green. Unwritten rules of wiener creating.
And then because I had brown and pink felt , I made this one, which is my fave.
All my Itty Bitties start with a "B"
The Welcoming Crew
I then added some Hallowienies. Boo....
and Batdog. Here is Batdog's description:
"Every wiener dog has large dreams...dreams of being able to look those Great Danes in the eye, of running with the grace and speed of a Greyhound, of flying to the rescue of all fellow wieners and small brothers. Every wiener dog wishes he were BATDOG! "
Now for the bigger boy. This pattern is a stubby version that I just lengthen when I cut. The pencil line is for the leg placement.
Willy was a bit time consuming as I had to sew together all the pieces (placemats in a former life) and change thread constantly. Then I gave him felt eyes to see with. No one wants to be blind - not even a Hallowiener.
Finally, I decided to make a dachshund skirt. I have plenty of kitty skirts in The Cat Rack, but wanted to add one to Dogbarks since I sold the only one last week. This two piece pattern is also the one I use for pillows. I randomly cut out legs, tail, and ears.
This fabric was a nice find at a thrift store. An unused bit of yardage made of some natural blend fiber. It bled quite a lot when I washed it in hot water. But a cold water wash should be just fine now. The doxie is a wool houndstooth in black and white. Handsome little fellow!

Hope you all get a chance to have a Wonderful Wiener Week, too!
