'What a scruffy dog you are", I gently scold him as he finishes racing around the room and drops his little ball at my feet. He gives me a look like butter wouldn't melt, before attacking my slippers. He loves everything in his little world, but despises baths. Oh we have tried...but such whining and barking and I won't even mention the long faces - so a scruffy dog he will remain, but oh so loveable too.
Scruffy dog is made from mohair fabric and stands about 11cm tall. He has been hand-coloured and has a lovely vintage look. He wears a tiny rusty bell around his neck, fastened onto a piece of dyed twine. He really is a cutie!
He was stitched on my old Singer treadle sewing machine and is one of my own designs. As with all my creations, this little dog is intended as collectors item and is not intended for children.
