meet carlile the corgi. he's a shy but loving little pooch. he wishes he could find the courage to ask the cute dachshund next door for a walk along the neighborhood stream, but alas, all he can do is hide behind his human's leg whenever she trots by.
so, i had some issues with this little guy. living in a small city = limited yarn variety. consequently, i had to use two different yarn gauges to create the corgi. no matter how many times i stomped through the aisles, i couldn't find the perfect corgi fur-like yarn. another thing: the selection of eyeballs and noses are limited as well. i had to order them from an etsy store called 6060. if you're looking for doll eyes, noses, doll joints, and/or buttons, this is the place for you. no really, there's literally no other store online to buy a good selection of doll thingamabobs for cheap. and they shipped fast.
the pattern is from a japanese book (photo below) that i lugged back with me this past month.
