I was excited when I was asked to sew the Tiny Puppy Pattern, what a cutie by the way. But first a little bit about Naomi.

She writes this about her business she named NIMBLE PHISH: “As a mom I have been able to fully embrace my inner child and follow my dream of embracing life with flamboyant creativity. I only hope that I can share that with the world and bring a little of my own light into the lives of others.”

My review of the adorable plush dog pattern “Tiny Puppy”:
Oh goodness, all I can say is that my daughter and I absolutely love this sweet little puppy! My daughter said the pattern should be called “Puppy Love” which is actually on the PDF file lol…
What the dog softie pattern contains:
- Printable pattern pieces for the head, ears, tail, arms, front body with legs, back body with legs, diaper and bone shaped sleeping bag
- 11 pages to print
- Picture tutorial with easy to follow steps and how to achieve the cute puppy facial features such as cheeks and floppy ears
Details about the puppy pattern:
- the finished puppy measures about 12″ long
- suitable materials are fleece, craft velour or suede cloth as per her listing.
- you want to be able to do a ladder stitch as this is required for closing the openings
What I liked about the pattern:
- I liked the simplicity of the pattern pieces as too many pieces would make this pattern more difficult to complete
- Her pictures are great and help tremendously in creating this plush dog pattern
What I suggest adding/changing to/about this pattern:
- Although this pattern is for a TINY puppy, most pattern pieces are big enough to handle well. For turning the sewn pieces with right sides out, I would increase the width of the arm and ear template about 1/4″. They are a bit fiddly to work with.
- I suggest using a turning tool to help with turning the sewn pieces
- On page 2, step 4 and 5: I changed this a bit to make it easier because the tail is super tiny and it would be difficult to sew the finished tail onto the back bodice. I sewed the tail together first and then I was able to sew the entire bodice with tail at once. See images of the step below.
So, all in all it’s a wonderful puppy plushie pattern that I can highly recommend! It would be the perfect Christmas gift for kids that love stuffies!

If I won, I would go with Tidbit the Elf, Sammy and Sarah, and City Mouse. I just bought the hugs pattern, so if that goes well I’m sure I’ll be able to make a few more.
I always hear wonderful things about Nimblephish. I would be so happy to get a jumpstart on Christmas with these.
I would love Night Rider, Fox & Hound and that tiny puppy which would be so fun to work on with my son.
