Calendar Poodle SAL

Calendar Poodle SAL

Hello friends! I am creating monthly poodle patterns for my cubby shelf. A few friends asked if they too could have the patterns and stitch them up. Of course!  Since the space I have for the poodles in my shelf is 1 3/4" wide x 1 7/8" high, they will always be small in design. Here you will find all 12 patterns as I create them, by the first week of each month.

Send me a picture of your poodle and a link to your blog. I will post it here. Thank you my friends!

Vicki is going to stitch ALL? of my poodles on one piece of fabric! I like the little addition of hearts Vicki.😘

From our friend Betsy

Here is what Betsy said:This little poodle looks just like my friend Nita’s little girl, Sophie.  I have been taking care of Sophie while they were on a cruise for the last week. They got home late last night and I gave her this bookmark when they picked Sophie up. She was thrilled. I did have to outline the picture because the fabric I chose has a lot of dark flecks in it and it didn’t show up very well. You can’t see the flecks in this picture. Go figure. Anyway, thank you for the sweet little pattern. I enjoyed stitching it up for her. 

This January Poodle was stitched up by our friend Vicki.


And here is Little Miss April all stitched up by our friend Vicki also.

Also her May poodles.
