Dog Bath Buddy - Doggie Puppet Crochet Pattern

This was really fun to design.
I actually designed this
Crochet pattern about 3 years ago,
I decided  to update the crochet 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 he cute?
