Hello everyone
This year I have challenged myself to draw a few more animals in particular different breeds of dog since they are recognisable but all so different.
Today is a simple sketch of a Beagle puppy, while a beagle may have more shades of brown in reality I used the minimum amount to make it easier to sew. If you have a particular dog in mind it should be easy enough to change the shade of brown or the shape of the stripe on its face to match the lovely dog you know.
This design also has whole stitches only to make it good for a beginner who is looking for a larger project to sew.
