Patch the Puppy

Designed and woven by Deborah Bagley

Using the Zoom Loom

A dog is man’s best friend, and this stuffed dog in a sweater is no exception! Weave Zoom Loom squares in your favorite colors, then assemble them into a pup who never leaves your side. Remember to insert the safety eyes and safety nose before you sew the dog closed!
