Scrappy Scottie

I bookmarked this pattern (free! from Denyse Schmidt) a long time ago when there seemed to be a Scottie population boom on the internet. (See cute versions here and here.) But then I kind of forgot about them until I saw this version by Kirsten at Gemini Stitches. We have a birthday party for a 4-year-old girl tomorrow, and I figured this would be a great gift!

Scrappy Scottie
I grabbed scraps from my bin pretty much at random. The side panel is white flannel. I added button eyes and a pink velvet ribbon collar. Easy!

Wish me luck getting him away from this kid (who insists on calling it a donkey)!

So cute!!! Ryan would totally call that a donkey, too, I bet - and I suspect would not let go :) Good luck!

I love the look on his face as he's squeezing the toy! And what a cute gift.

Your Scottie is very cute Katie, and I love the fabrics you have used. I think you may have to make another one for your son though:)

Looks to me like you're going to have to make another one really soon - like maybe before tomorrow!!
