In honor of our 10-year anniversary, Krista has designed two new felt crafts based on our office dogs. One is a corgi and the other is an Italian doxie. Unlike our other felt dog we have on the site for you, this pattern is a felt sitting dog. And we will be showing you how to make it live during our spring craft summit!
To prepare for our workshop, check out our supplies list and instructions below.
Sit back and relax
As we reflect on 10 years of creating craft projects for you, we can’t help but think of all the benefits that crafting can bring! Studies have shown that working with our hands in a repetitive nature can be very meditative, allowing us to unwind, alleviate stress, and reduce anxiety. So we invite you to sit back — just like this felt sitting dog stuffie — and relax as you craft this cute project.
Along with teaching you how to assemble this felt sitting dog, we will show you how to make the floral bandana pictured here. As always, you can vary the felt colors you choose for this project. Or you can use what we’ve linked below in our supplies list.
Skill level: Beginner
Stitches used: Straight stitch, whip stitch, backstitch, and French knot. Need more guidance with these stitches? Check out our free embroidery guide.

Thank you sooo much
it’s me again, i forgot to ask for the white heart shaped for the bum template.
I added the white bum to the SVG version. Let me know if you need a PDF.
I just made my very first stuffie – Corgi. Question on the legs, the photo tutorial Step 11 , it says snip off the excess tan felt from the backside. Did not see if Emily did that. When I did it, it looks kinda weird. But maybe I snipped off the wrong way.
Please let me know what’s the better way of how to do it.
Thank you. I love learning new things
For the corgi, the white felt was for the tips of the paws. We did clip the back layer of the paws off, so there was less overlap. This keeps it from getting bulky, especially around the foot of the paw.
I can’t find the replay of the felt dog stuffie?Am I looking in the wrong place?
It should be here now.
I have never done any felt stuffies so I am very eager to learn. My 2 daughters each own a corgi – 1 girl and 1 boy (Belle and Quaffle)
So I want to make these as a surprise gift but had to watch the replay- can’t wait
Yes! It will be available for you after the LIVE event. Such a great gift! 🙂
Some corgis have heart-shaped tails (stubs).
Yes! You can customize yours with that detail too. We have a corgi here in the office. I will have to check his tail when he comes in tomorrow. 😉
I’m looking forward to making these cuties. Learning the decorative stitches, will be my challenge. I need all the tips and tricks that I can get.
I am excited to learn too!
