This is a paper sewing pattern (for UK postage) to sew a Dog. Your completed Darcy Dog will sit 37cm (14.5”) tall. Darcy Dog has a cheerful face, with a lovely smile and big eyes, big floppy spaniel ears, and a tail that’s ready to wag. His back and front legs are stitched in so no need to sew tricky joints. If you are making him as a keepsake the ears have plenty of room to embroider names and dates on
