It’s supposed to be the year of the dog but the Sanrio characters are all dressed up as cats for these new plush, available at US Sanrio stores or online. I think the kitten sized ones are the cutest, especially Gudetama and Pompompurin.

Things To Make

Year of the Dog Crafts

Posted on January 19, 2018 by

The dog is my Chinese zodiac animal, so I was happy to look for some projects I could share for Lunar New Year. While I adore cats, I’ve found that the internet definitely needs more dog crafts! If you’re looking to celebrate the occasion with crafting, here are some of the cutest DIYs.

Year of the Dog Crafts - pug amigurumi crochet pattern

Ohana Craft Amigurumi has a fit-in-the-palm-of-your-hand-sized amigurumi pug tutorial in honor of 2018’s zodiac animal, which is perfect for tiny craft lovers.

Year of the Dog Crafts - amigurumi crochet pattern

For a larger crochet project, Storyland Ami’s Year of the Dog pattern is perfectly described as “cuddle-sized.” It really is cute enough to cuddle!

Year of the Dog Crafts colouring page

Cute Chinese New Year coloring pages can be hard to find, but the Year of the Dog printable coloring page by LaSoffittaDiSte is an easy and inexpensive option for anyone that enjoys coloring.

Looking for some paper crafts? Kamikey Origami has several Year of the Dog videos that are super cute, including this origami doggy DIY. I love watching their videos because they are thorough enough for beginners to origami. There’s also a similar envelope version.

Year of the Dog chinese zodiac Crafts sewing patterns

Being a huge fan of Little Dear’s cute style and delicate embellishments, I couldn’t leave out Aimee’s Chinese zodiac sewing pattern set that includes an adorable puppy. (She has two other sets to round out the rest of the zodiac, too!)

Which one is your favorite? Is your zodiac the dog, or something else? Let us know if you try any of these projects!
