Stitched Safari – Shiba hybrid

A dear dog-sitting friend of mine recently fell in love with one of her canine guests – a very pretty unconfirmed breed, perhaps a greyhound crossed with a blue cattle-dog. So for my first Stitched Safari project, I decided to adapt the Shiba dog pattern to resemble her furry friend.

I didn’t give much thought to body shape, instead focussing on the colouring. As a result, this little pup looks nothing like her canine companion, but pretty cute regardless. I really enjoyed bringing the character to life, piece by piece…though I’ll be sticking to the instructions next time!

  1. Hi Kitty, very amusing! She’s not a million miles away from my dream dog – you got the black mask and the sticky-up ears right, and the general gorgeousness. Well done! What breed is next? A Weimaraner? J x

    Really lovely, and captures puppy cuteness perfectly! You’re so talented!

  3. Thanks JB, who doesn’t love a cute puppy…even if awkwardly stitched together.

  4. Glad you like her! Might try a completely different animal next. Quite like the kangaroo and panda patterns in this book! They’re all super-cute…hard to choose..
