Sending Out Across The Universe

I simply must make one or two of these. Does anyone have a pattern that I could swap for or beg or pay money for??? Or better still, does anyone have one already made that I could swap for or beg or pay money for???



Just after my Dah (grandfather) died... the man with whom my Grandma did everything... they cuddled and made things and had a big love together... she got a poodle she named Pierre. The dog got a lot of affection and was thoroughly spoiled, naturally.
Grandma made anything poodle. She crocheted stacks of these things. Bought little poodle things... cards, whatever.
The dog disappeared one day. It was old and blind by now and probably wandered away but she was sure it was stolen. Of course the suburb wasn't what it used to be (Moonee Ponds).
Anyway, seeing the film today created a hole in my heart that cannot any longer be filled by Grandma, but can be filled (as substitution/as reminder) by a crocheted poodle bottle cover.
??? I'll pay handsomely. Cards, patterns, other pattern, other other patterns or money...???
A link would make me happy although I've been looking (when I should be undercoating the house).
I s'pose I could figure it out heh?

Ok Ok, I saw a pattern on Ebay... but where's the fun? I'll be a good girl and figure it out...

I have one, I'm sure. Would you like me to dig it out, or would you prefer to prove, yet again, how goddamn clever you are?

I understand you MUST make a poodle thing. I'm away from home this week but I suspect there's some poodle patterns in my book collection so I'll be home next Sunday and will look through them for you. Just put it into my diary so that is organised!

Those crocheted poodles are cute. I have never seen anything like it before. Hope you are well Robynne :o)(xoxo Ruby's friend Penny)

i set my kids the task of looking through all my craft books to find a pattern. There was NONE! But it kept them busy for a few hours, no joke, and they LOVED the challenge. They enjoyed the seaching so much it was wierd, actually.
