christmas gifts for dad Grandma Camp, Part 2- Zipper Critter Dogs decorative pillow shams

Updated: 2020/03/27 Views: 177

My campers love dogs. What could be better than their own dog pillows, made to sleep with and to hold their pj’s? I used bright, leftover quilt fabrics in all different colorschristmas gifts for dad, old buttons and my collection of colored zippers. It’s quick and easy to make these if you buy the ready-made travel pillows. I put Minkee fabric on the back for comfort. Each camper picked their favorite dog and named them. They were their constant companions for the camp-out.

These dogs were adapted from an Indigo Junction pattern called Zipper Critters.

It’s a good idea to reinforce the button eyes with fabric behind them so they don’t need eye surgery. If you make a critter for a little one, appliqué the eyes instead of using buttons so they don’t get eaten off the dog. They go together in a snap when you make them assembly-line style.

Presser feet used to create these puppy pals were?the appliqué foot (Open Embroidery Foot #20),?the piecing foot (Patchwork Foot #37),?the zipper foot (Zipper Foot #4), and?the all-purpose foot in conjunction with BERNINA Dual Feed (Reverse Pattern Foot #1D). You could use a walking foot in place of dual feed.

Make your favorite camper their very own dog. They will love you for it!
