Little Mohair Dog

I got something finished this weekend. Although it didn't seem like I would ever get to sit down and sew I managed to finish "Buster". I know it's not a very imaginative name but he looks like a Buster to me. At just 4" tall standing, he is the smallest mohair dog I have ever made. Made of curly matted sparse mohair, he is five way jointed with cotter pins & fiberboard discs. Cotter pin jointing takes a bit of getting used to. Because of his small size I did all of the sewing by hand. I am happy with the overall design but will probably still tweak it a bit. I have some small leftover pieces of mohair that I think will make nice "little dogs".
