Krawka: Cute crochet dogs wedding gift - russian toy dog, free pattern by Krawka

My dearest friend recently got married. I wouldn't be myself if I wouldn't make some crochet gift for this occasion. I made a pair of two little dogs (they are based on russian toy dogs), boy with a bow-tie and a girl with a flower headband.
