Kids will sew a new best friend with the cutest stuffed dog! These sweet dog plushies will be customized by using beautiful, colorful cotton fabric chosen by the students. After learning how to operate a sewing machine, kids will use their machine to stitch their floppy ears and sew around the body of their dogs. Finishing their cuddly dogs will include stuffing, hand stitching the opening closed, embellishing with ribbons, and sewing a matching dog bone for their new favorite pet!
