Free Poodle Patterns

Hello friends! I have created 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 are all small in design. 

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

From our friend Vicki

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.

Here is Mabel done by Vicki.

Here is the August poodle stitched by Vicki with her own wonderful touches added!

Here is Vicki's September poodle

Our friend Julie is stitching the poodles that look like her two toy poodles onto a bookmark.

Great idea to have all the Poodles on one page ;-)

Looking forward to seeing the new additions each month.

Now that is a formidable challenge you have taken- a poodle a month. And I must say your poodles are lovely—all the best for your attempt. I want to take up this challenge, but my days are tightly scheduled for this month. Hopefully, I may do this by next month!! Happy stitching, Vickie!!
