On the Fourth Day of Christmas....Moxie the Doxie

Some time back, the fabulous BadSkirt Amy gave away her adorable Moxie the Doxie pattern to her blog readers.  As soon as I saw it, I just knew I had to make one up for the darling Anna Banana.  Since it's for a little baby I didn't want to put buttons on the leg joints, or sewn on buttons on the eyes, so instead I used thick embroidery floss to secure everything very well.  I think she turned out super cute- what a great pattern!  Hope Anna likes it!  For my sister I made one of the great big mouth pouches using the tutorial over at Noodlehead.  It was so easy to follow: I'd been wanting to make one of these for a while and the instructions were very easy to follow.  I hope she finds it useful!


  1. Love how colorful the dog is! I worry about buttons, too. I've started using safety doll eyes when I make stuffed animals. It is a post with a washer that goes on the inside so it won't fall out. Your sister's bag looks great too!

  2. Shannon,

    your package arrived today. Thanks a million again for this lovely giveaway. The book is really lovely, my fingers are itching for some bag-making. The bag you made for me is really cute, I’ve already put my crochet things into it. Thank you again! God bless you!

    Wish you a happy new year!
    Best wishes and happy sewing,
