One of the granddaughters has a purple "crush" and a birthday, so I try to feed it with an much of that color as possible. I made her a purple stuffed Scotty, didn't turn out perfect but she loved it. I certainly had enough small scraps of purple around, the patchwork was easy, the gusset was more difficult for me anyway. When asked her what she was going to name it she whispered to me, "Bleu" which is the name of our lab. So we now have a black Bleu and a purple Bleu. Makes sense to me. This was a free pattern by Denyse Schmidt and I thank her for the really nice idea, I love Scotty dogs.
Her name is Veronica, hence the big V which is a nice letter to play with by the way. Its such a good shape.
