How to Make Fabric Pet Portraits


If you can applique, you can do this.  

I start with a digital photo of my favorite pooch (or a friend’s pet). 

Size the photo in my computer. 

Print and trace.

I layer and stitch (using fabrics from old sample books) until I get a picture that I like. 

Words and names are cut from old tee shirts. 

Pooch portraits make great pillows–and great gifts.
