7 Crafts for Dog Lovers

1. Shabby chic

Sure to be a hit with the kids, this stretchy sausage dog is easy to turn into a different breed by switching up the face and colours. If you fancy creating yourself a Slink sidekick, you can find the templates here.

2. Embellished art

Whether you choose sequins, beads, buttons or gemstones, it's simple to create a likeness of your tail-wagger by covering a photo in embellishments, carefully matching colours as you go. You can buy ready-made or bespoke kits, or compose your own using a variety of sizes and shades.

3. Hound's head

We love these cute canine characters, made by crocheting a trophy-style head onto an embroidery hoop. Be sure to select yarns matching the colours, tones and textures of your pet's fur for best results.

4. Pet pawtrait

You'll smile every time you see your dog in a vintage-style portrait wearing uniform! If you're a dab-hand at brushwork, you can paint your very own mutt masterpiece; otherwise, you'll need to print photos of your dog and an old master, then trim to fit together or manipulate them digitally.

5. Pup pillow

Certain to be allowed on the sofa, these stash-busting appliqué cushions are perfect for snuggling up with when your furry companion's too tired for tummy rubs. Dissect a photo of Fido into simplified parts to create the pattern, then collate the patchwork using various fabrics and faux furs.

6. Mosaic mutt

A versatile idea that can be used for decorations, magnets, plaques and more, this motif is simple to craft too. Draw a silhouette of your pooch onto thin ply and cut out with a jigsaw (you can order bespoke shapes online or cut up stiff cardboard if you prefer) and fill it with mosaics, stones, beads, buttons or gemstones on a bed of tile adhesive.

7. Pebble art

This ruff-ined project would be a hit gift with any dog-loving friend, and is speedy to make too. You'll need a box frame, strong glue and a selection of small pebbles in suitable shades. Keep the background plain or add a coloured pattern and a few sweet words.
