This little doggie is a gift for a friend of a friend. She is modelled somewhat after a pit bull. I used beads, jump rings, cotton fabric, ribbon and buttons. She is filled with fiber fill. The thread I used is DMC cotton perle. Funny because last night the cat got into my thread and I found the ball criss-crossing in, over, under around and through every piece of furniture in my dining room/living room area this morning.
