It ain't over...

until the crabass says so.  So.  Now it's over.
 
  
These dogs bothered me from the beginning but unlike every other aspect of a design, I never thought to change them.  Had not a clue how or what to modify.  Then I saw Patti Gagliardi's finish on her post and knew what to do.  Thank you Patti!  Patti has two dachshunds and likes to include them in her stitching which is what I assume, led to the change. 
 
 
I added a few more stitches to the head, shown on the right, original on the left.  Not the first time I added stitches to a completed and sewn finish.  It's not hard to do, even with the fusible interfacing.  And if it was, the dogs were barking loud enough for me to attempt it anyway.  One is still barking because he's a little short in the tail.  Sorry pal, that I can't fix.
 
Done. Again.

It looks much better your way. It looked like the designer left off the ears. Good Job!

I like your dogs. The other dog could still have a longer tail ... just add one more stitch on the diagonal. I tried in an earlier comment to demonstrate, but all I got was a straight line. So
...X (the new stitch)

I see what you mean the dogs were in need of a few more stitches. Now they look like dogs, well done.

Oh yea I can see how that would be bothersome looking. Excellent save!

Patti said...

You are amazing! I've never tried to add stitches to a finished project. Not sure I have the guts :)
Blessings, Patti
