I folded it in on the sides until it looked like a dog’s muzzle and then stitched it together. Because of the fold, you don’t have to stuff it.


Sew front and back of chi together starting from one side to the other.

Then sew bottom on. Leave yourself enough room to stuff the pup and then finished sewing.

I attached the ears and then the muzzle. This way you can align all of the features to your liking.

I sewed on the button eyes last.

Note: This pattern is untested. You may email me at with questions. This is my pattern, please do not abuse it by selling my pattern. It is free to all dog and toy lovers.
