Note: I did double up my yarn to make it thicker for stuffing. Also if you are having a hard time seeing how to do the legs, please visit the mini dog video to watch how to make the legs. You can also follow the mini dog pattern video as for as the back of the head, after the ears, the internal decrease for help as well. This video is come of my last footage on the old action cam for looming videos. After this should be easy to see videos.
