We’re doing some traveling this summer and I decided Bean needed his own little piece of luggage. I went into a local independent fabric store, and found this laminated cotton houndstooth, and the Nothing But a Hound Dog Backpack idea popped into my head.
I’m not going into all the details of how I made the backpack – for that, there is a pattern here from Made By Rae that you can buy (and it’s schmancietr than mine anyway) or there’s a very good tutorial from Naptime Crafters here that will basically show you the same thing I did. Why reinvent the wheel?
What I do have for you is the tutorial about how I made the dog face, and free printable pattern pieces for the dimensional muzzle and ears. You can use this to make your own hound dog with either of the backpack options I mentioned above.

Gray scraps for the muzzle and eye ring
Black fleece scraps for the ears, nose and eyes
Starting with the muzzle – cut 1 on the fold and mark the darts. Then, pin the darts and press but DON”T SEW them.
Thanks for having me Kaysi!
