Scot the Dog


Scot the Dog is an adorable stuffed animal sewing project that allows young stitchers the ability to design and create their very own stuffed animal in 2-3 hours.

Finished size is approximately 13”w x 12”t.  Skills learned in this project include making a stuffed animal from start to finish, machine sewing, hand sewing, how to hand sew flat buttons, how to hand sew a button, sewing a shape that is really curvy, how important seam allowance and sewing close to  the edge are when sewing something with a very distinct shape.

This project is #2 in a series of 5 kids sewing projects that are part of the Animal Crackers Sewing Project Curriculum.


The Animal Crackers sewing project theme was named after the small flat crackers/cookies shaped like animals. The projects in this theme were made with the younger stitcher in mind (1st, 2nd & 3rd graders) but can be made with older kids, as well. The shapes are simple, yet help new seamsters perfect their skills sewing things beyond straight lines. Almost every project has some hand sewing elements in it, as well.

This sewing curriculum theme includes everything you need to teach your very first successful kids sewing class (minus the fabric).  This project download includes lesson plan, pattern & tutorial for the Bedside Organizer project shown in the photos.

It is important to note: When you purchase this sewing project curriculum from Hipstitch Academy you are entitled to teach & reproduce these sewing projects with your sewing students as many times as you would like. Please note, this is not the case with most sewing projects you find or purchase from other sources.
