Vintage craft

Does anyone have instructions for a poodle made with plastic bags made several years ago? I was looking through an old Workbasket magazine today and saw an ad for "Pierre the poodle" made with plastic bags. If I remember correctly, the bags were somehow cut and put over wire clothes hangers. The ad that I saw was offering the pattern for free if you subscribed to a craft magazine. Thanks if anyone can help me out. My great-aunt is in a nursing home and I think she'd love one of these!

What a nice thought for your aunt. I've seen one years ago, but have no instrucitons :(
Good luck, kathy

RE: Vintage craft

I couldnt find the plastic bag ones, but did find the yarn ones...I guess you could use the shape from this and just tie your plastic bag bundles onto this form.....hope it helps

RE: Vintage craft

Could you use the yarn pattern and cut the plastic bags into crochet or knitting yarn size. There used to be patterns for both knitted and/or crocheted ones.
