Pho­to­copy the tem­plates op­po­site and cut out two brooch back­ings from your cream felt, a dachs­hund from your light brown felt, and a tail and an ear from your dark brown felt.

Po­si­tion the dachs­hund cen­trally onto a brooch back­ing piece, then us­ing two strands of light brown thread, sew in place. Us­ing the same thread and the pic­tures as a guide, sew on the tail and the ear pieces.

Cut out the col­lar and coat trim from the gold faux leather and the coat tri­an­gles from your re­main­ing felt, us­ing the pic­tures for colour ref­er­ence.

Us­ing two strands of white em­broi­dery thread, sew the col­lar and coat trim in place, us­ing the outer shape of the coat tem­plate as a place­ment guide. Add the coat tri­an­gles one at a time, sewing around the out­side of each one with white thread.

Us­ing two strands of black em­broi­dery thread and back­stitch, em­broi­der the eye and the nose onto your dachs­hund’s face, then use the white thread to sew on the gold charm at the base of the col­lar.

Turn the sec­ond brooch back­ing right side up – this will be side that will forms the re­verse of your brooch – and at­tach the brooch pin us­ing fab­ric glue. If you pre­fer, you can sew it on us­ing match­ing em­broi­dery thread in­stead.

Place your dachs­hund brooch front and brooch back with wrong sides to­gether, align­ing the edges. Us­ing blan­ket stitch and two strands of white em­broi­dery thread, sew all the way around the out­side to fin­ish.
