Fun Ideas for Dog Bone Template Crafts
Wondering what you can do with these free printable dog bone templates? We’ve created this list of ideas to inspire you!
Sew a plush dog bone
Sewing plush softies is super simple with all of our template shapes.
Simply trace the shape onto two pieces of fabric and cut out. Sew the two pieces together, leaving a small gap to insert the stuffing. Fill your softie with polyester fiberfill and then sew up to have a cute adorable dog bone plush!
If you’re using these templates for plush for your pets to play with, be sure you use a very strong and durable upholstery fabric that can withstand some wear and tear and chewing.
These dog bone shapes are also perfect for appliqué – you can make a blanket for your favorite pooch or even use the dog bone patterns to make a pillow, tote bag, Christmas stocking, and more!
Doodling and Zentangle
Many people have told us they love our free pattern shapes to use for drawing Zentangle patterns and doodling! Think of our free shape templates as a blank canvas for you to use to make all sorts of designs!
If you are embroidering, you can easily print out the template and cut out the dog bone to then trace onto your fabric.
