If you know somebody who loves dogs and loves to craft and wants to combine both of their passions in one, than look no further. Today I have a crafty dog lover’s gift guide for you.
My daughter, Roxanne, who loves crafting and knows pretty much everything there is to know about dog breeds, helped me to compile the very best dog-themed items for your crafty friend, relative, or co-worker (and she helped me write the descriptions in this post). Enjoy!
(Over the summer we went to a local farm and there was an adoption event for an animal shelter. Roxanne became buddies with a deaf pitbull. We couldn’t bring him home, but here she is giving him a hug.)

Recreate your favorite pure bred pall in an adorable knitted softie. Have a mutt? Combine different elements to create your mixed breed best friend.
This is one of Roxanne’s favorite books of all time. Start with beginner folding projects like a fluffy Bichon Frisee or a snuggly Scottich Terrier, then move on to more difficult projects like a wrinkly Shar Pei or a slobbering Great Dane. All you need to do is score with scissor, cut on the lines, and fold up your new fuzzy friend. Be sure to get a pack of neutral-colored card stock to copy your patterns so you can make strong and sturdy pups that will stand up on their own.
Perfect for beginning and advanced knitters alike, anyone who loves dogs and loves to knit is sure to find the perfect project here. Find everything from collars to pullovers to ruffly capes so your dog will be both stylin’ and cosy this winter.
Even if you’re new to needle felting you’ll find success making miniature dogs with wool roving and an easy-to-use needle felting tool. This book features adorable long-haired dog styles plus wrinkly faces and wagging tales. Create the perfect dog to use as an ornament or show off all year long. Be sure to get the needle felting tool, wool roving, and foam surface to complete the set.

Doodling for Dog People by Gemma Correll
We love Gemma Correll. Her cartoons make our whole family laugh. In this book she encourages you to spend time drawing your canine friends by providing fun prompts and exercises to get your creative juices flowing. This would be a great book to take on a road trip or just tuck into your purse to give you something fun (and non-digital) to work on during your down time.
Decorate your journal, make cute greeting cards, or embellish other craft projects with a roll of puppy washi tape.

That’s it! Got a neat puppy-themed gift for crafters? I’d love to hear about it! And I hope Roxanne and I have helped you find something fun on this list for yourself or to gift to a friend.
