These are my cute puppies made with pipe cleaners,
I have used a standard pipe cleaner here, but the fat ones make a great shaggy puppy.
These are not toys and never should be given to children
If played with they fall apart
It take two pipe cleaners and the above tools,
I also use a piece of ribbon for the collar.
measurements in inches.
You now have to bend the pieces before putting together,
the ears look like a 'C', top
The tail and body are folded in half as are the legs.
you need a second fold in the legs to create its paws,
don't forget to make the paws look large,
to make the nose you need to press the tip of the 1st fold out
whilst doing this you need to ensure the rest of the head is squeezed in
Pop one set of legs behind the head,
add the legs with tail attached.
measure the body length and make a fold half way along
you will tuck this back towards the neck
tidy both sets of legs and then squeeze the body together
squeeze body together and tuck ends of pipe cleaners in
To add to the cuteness, bend his ears forward
To make the eyes I use a small marker pen
beads can be used foe eyes.
For his nose I use the marker pen again
I created this design, after looking at a tutorial for a teddy bear
I played with the sizes until it worked out right.
If you can turn these into cats please let me know
mine are never right,
Have fun with your puppies
