The fabric colour is a little more brown than this, but I can't photograph it well with my phone. This is the middle of the basset and I plan on stitching the back end ;) first. I'm going to adjust the feet a little. I'd like to make the pattern a little smaller for the back feet and larger for the front feet so it matches our basset a little better. He had massive front paws and teeny back paws as most purebred bassets do.
Otto demonstrates this well in his pumpkin costume from 2012. I still miss you!
Happy Stitching, and Happy IHSW everyone!
