All you need to make this issue’s projects
MATERIALS Scissors Fabric glue
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.
