Leisal a Doxie Puppy Grrl

Anyone that knows me, knows I would have to make a Dachshund Puppy Grrl. I might try a black and tan one later on. Leisal is 9 1/2" tall and created with rust mohair that has a dark back. I have made several versions of Dachshunds with this fur. It is perfect for a short red doxie. There seems to be a lot of fabric with doxies and scotties. I really prefer vintage looking fabric for the Puppy Grrls dresses. It seems smaller prints are hard to find. I have several prints in my stash and at least 3 more "Grrls" to be made. I was perusing ebay and saw a print with the Pokey Puppy on it. I think I'll check the local quilt shop to see if they carry it. I found several cutes prints with poodles but the print is too big. The poodles measure a couple of inches tall and I prefer under 1 inch for the
dresses. Let me know if you come across any cute "puppy prints".

Nancy you have excelled yourself! She is divine ... I love her little lace trimmed dress, it makes her look so feminine.

This little girl is cute as a button!
Have you looked at Japanese fabrics? They tend to have very small, very adorable print!
Here is a sample, probably not the best example... but the shop carries quite a few fabrics :)
