It was a colleagues 50th birthday recently at work, and her immediate work mates had clubbed together to buy her a Radley Handbag. Of course I was inspired by the Scottie Dog logo, and set about making a bag charm. Using a pattern from a previous project, I cut out 2 halves in contrasting colours and blanket stitched them together and was going to leave it flat, but in the end decided to lightly stuff it.
I didn't like it left plain, so I cut out the felt hearts and embroidered them on to the sides, and chose the beads for the eyes.
Finally I made the collar and lead out of a piece of fine ribbon and attached to a lobster claw.
Wendy seemed really pleased with her Scottie Dog and hung it straight onto her handbag!
The photos were taken with my mobile phone at work as I forgot to take a picture at home.
