Crochet Dog Pattern Dress Up Pup

Do you know a child coping with something hard in life, bullying, illness, anxiety? Or maybe they just need a cute, cuddly friend. This crochet dog amigurumi pattern is just what you need. Dress Up Pup is the perfect companion to cheer them up and help them feel less alone. With two outfits to choose from, the child gets to choose which one the dog should wear.

And who says you even need a child to give it to. If you’re a big kid at heart, make one for yourself. It’s a super easy pet with little maintenance other than changing it’s clothes and giving it a hug after a hard day!

It also comes with with a downloadable, printable PDF “Adoption Sheet” where the child or you gets to name the pup, choose it’s age, date of adoption, even the pup’s favorite treat.
