How to ? Is always a good way to start a toy dog.


How to ? ...... do a quick drawing of Amie Soto Blossom.

You should all know by now I struggle with a pencil and paint brush.... Heather at Little bearries is a talented artist, it took Heather a few minutes.

Heather, thank you so much.... Amie would be very honoured except she is asleep in her usual pose, reclining at my feet. I will gush for her and say, how very honoured we are that you have taken the time and effort to do this drawing.

I know post scripts should come at the bottom of a posting..... how could I not include Heather's drawing of Ames in this post. Here is Heather's blog link, you can see Heather's version of Amie Soto Blossom for yourself.



How to ?
Is always a good way to start to wonder how on earth you can replicate a dog...
Never................. not in a million years..............
How to?
When you want it to be a look alike ...


For AMIE SOTO BLOSSOM... Michele Beesley does it so much better than I ever could.
Michele's painting of Ames is above the toy dog you notice.
I don't even come near..........


I am not that cleaver, or never ever try to be... this dog is the real thing.
A one off and never to be repeated babe..
There is ONLY ONE snorer in the cottage and we know who you are AMES .

She might be cute, even in her old age, doesn't mean that snaffling cat food is a forgivable offense either... WEASEL !
Even with the kiss kiss mistletoe stuff.. we all know Christmas is coming...
Do we really want a Christmas Card with you on it ?
Dog with attitude... !
I love my dog :-) ...........

Oh Midge - Tilly May will love it - I think you did a beautiful job!

I'm sure Tilly May will be ecstatic with her Amie-mini-me! It's so cute! It's great fun trying to replicate your dog in fabric/yarn, I've done it a few times. Someone suggested once that I knit him out of his own hair but I wouldn't go that far.....

You were on the right lines, just Amies markings that got you a little bit. You are very close. As for a Christmas card with a picture of Amies on yes please. she is such a cute little dog. Lucky sends her love. x

Cute toy and great Christmas card.

Sue Doran said...

Beautiful toy, wonderful sentiments, super card. This gets me off to work with a smile, thank you! :-)

Sandee said...

I am oh - so NOT a dog person, but I have grown quite attached to your precious little dog through your blog. I even had my own dog for 16 years and loved her to pieces. But other peoples' dogs cause me to shake in my boots. Amie cause me to smile.

I think the pretend Amie is a cutey and as for the real thing in photo glory on a card - too precious.

Sue said...

I'm planning to try knitting a dog that somewhat resembles mine, probably after the holidays. Heaven only knows what it will look like when I'm done. I'll let you know.

Amie is one in a million with such personality. I think you did a lovely job of making her as a soft toy. My Daughter was thinking about making dolls of her friends for their birthdays -we have a naked one in the craft room at the moment but I've not blogged her.... not being one for doll porn. ROFL

I owe you an email from yonks ago- am getting on top of email again. Hugs

Well done Heather - that is one cute drawing!
