Riley Blake Robot Dog Me!

Want to make a Robot Dog? Well, check out my free tutorial posted today to Riley Blake Design's Cutting Corners College.  I call him RBRD.  

The Robot Dog uses one of Riley Blake's great new fabric lines, called Puppy Park by Bella Blvd.  All the step-by-step photos, directions and pattern download are here

I was so excited to be a Riley Blake course instructor.  If you haven't checked out Cutting Corners College, be sure you do -there are tons of fun tutorials, and they post at least 2-3 a week!

I've been working on RBRD's robot dog design since April - hard to keep a secret that long!  I wanted to make a softie that combined two of my favorites - robots and doggies.  After many prototypes, this was the winning design.

If you decide to make one, please send me a picture.  I'd love to do a round up of them here on my blog.
