Puppy Dog 🐶 toy with secret insert pocket

For sewing with the kids, this has to be a simple project that the visitors can take home same day.  Babysitting for 2-3 hours doesn’t give much time to get a lot done but the kids love sewing and it’s a win win time spent.

I first drew a sketch of a dog, the outline was what I would like the dog to be shaped as when sewn, so add a seam allowance of 1cm all around the shape

Shape ears and again, and cut two squares for the pocket, not bigger than the body of the dog… then add a seam allowance.
