Custom Crocheted Dog
Is this not the cutest little dog you have ever seen? I think he is, although I must admit I am biased since I am the one who crocheted him. I think I fall in love with every critter I crochet. I am sad to pack them up and send them away, but I must send them off to live elsewhere or my house would overflow with yarn creatures all begging to be hugged. I can barely keep up with the eight fur critters that want my attention. I would feel so guilty if I didn’t hug the crocheted animals, so it is better that they get hugged by someone other than me.
And this cute guy is on his way to being hugged by a nice lady who provided me with pictures of her dear departed dog named Chance, who she called Fluffy, and granted me the opportunity to create a crocheted version of him. I am so grateful to her for giving me this project. I really enjoyed looking at the photos and trying to interpret his personality and appearance using crocheted yarn and stuffing. When I had completed his creation, I was nervous about whether I had met her expectations and emailed several images for her approval. Her response was better than I could hope for:
“Oh my goodness, I almost cried when I saw him! He looks so much like Fluffy and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you so, so much for doing such an incredible job! I am extremely pleased with how he turned out. Thank you again for everything. I can’t wait to get him!”
I hope she has many happy hours of hugging pleasure.
