"Our Parisian Poodle Pouch is just plain fun! The template for the poodle silhouette is included with the pattern. Fuse the poodle silhouette in place, and a little shine by appliqueing with Coats & Clark Trilobal Polyester Embroidery thread. A contrasting Coats & Clark Fashion Metal zipper accents the pouch. For extra glitz add a Coats & Clark Silver Zipper pull. To add stability, add some machine quilting and you have a great little bag for cosmetics or other essentials."

NotesComplete instructions and template for the poodle and bag can be found on Yarnspirations/Coats & Clark.
