Special Request of the Week

Look here each week for the Special Request of the Week, where one customer's design request is featured. This week's request for a sketch and silhouette of the adorable Papillon is from Carolyn. The Papillon is a friendly, happy dog with excellent social skills. Their ears used to only be droopy, but over time a type developed with erect, fringed ears that resemble the wings of a butterfly (Papillon means "butterfly" in French). Stitch this bright, curious dog onto tote bag, towels, pillow covers, quilts, and more! Thank you for the great idea, Carolyn!
