Stitched together with good intentions- a grumble of [sock] pugs!

On September 1, 2016, Fall weather and autumn vibe seemed to come on full force here in Vancouver BC.  Along with the autumn atmosphere comes the rejuvenated desire to craft, to create product and re-open the ETSY shop and the reminder to focus on the Winter craft fair to do list.

So I put away my other work and focused on a full on production day yesterday making my signature sock pugs!

I wondered what a group of pugs is called… OMG:

“To dream of a fawn colored pug is signifies that you are accepting whatever changes you are trying to make and integrating them into your life. Alternatively to see many Pugs in your dream signify’s your inability to accept certain changes in your life even though these changes are necessary for you to move forward at this time. The dream is letting you know that the changes will happen with or without your acceptance.” – source

I myself am made entirely of flaws, stitched together with good intentions.

I know these faun sock pugs have black tails which is probably incorrect- but hey- they are DOUBLE CURLED (top standard) and are made of socks, so… and also they do have anuses(!) so that should balance out the incorrect color of the tails!

Sock Rottweiller plans!

Quite a few years ago, I designed my first sock pug.  Since then I have made many, and they continue to be very popular!

My pugs are available made to order on my ETSY site for $40.00 USD.

Due to multiple requests, I am now tackling a Sock Rottweiller!

According to my plans, they will be a bit more complex than my pugs.  They will be listed for $45.00 USD on my ETSY site.

To me -the Rottie represents confidence, courage, strength and committed choice.

The finished Rottie will measure about 10-12″ front to back.
