Dog Bath Buddy - Doggie Puppet Crochet Pattern

Dog Bath Buddy Crochet Pattern
By Sara Sach of
Posh Pooch Designs
This was really fun to design.
I actually designed this Crochet pattern about 6 years ago,
I decided  to update the crochet pattern.
We Re-tested, Updated and Re-edited the Pattern
It is a lot of fun to make, and play with.
It can be a bath buddy mitt for the kids to play with
 in the tub,or a puppet for out of the tub playtime.
I have designed the puppet in basic colors,
but it would be fun to see it made in  different colors.

Isn't It cute?
