Handsome Happy B-Day Hound

What a sweet little gift this ended up being for Silas' first birthday. My fear though is that the Handsome Hound may not hold up for long in the hands of a toddler. I've already had to replace an eye.
I'm pretty lousy at sewing and there were a lot of pieces to put together with this project. Of course, it was worth it in the end. That being said, I think the next time I make a toy, I'll choose something with less finishing work, and most likely, it will be crocheted.
I worked on Handsome Hound for just over a month previous to Si's birthday, and I finished him in the knick of time--just one day to spare!
He's very squishy and lovable (at least, to me). Another great pattern from Lucinda Guy!
