Don’t you just love the Scottish terrier? His friendly but confident demeanor, his spirited personality, and his doubly charming coat, make him a most popular breed. Add to that his Scottish Highlands heritage, and you must agree that he is the perfect accessory for the Highlands Holiday purse! As far as headgear, most people are familiar with a Scottish tam, or beret. But the traditional bonnet worn by all the Queen’s staff at Holyrood house is the Glengarry, a sturdy wool cap, often trimmed with a toorie (pompom), a grosgrain ribbon band, and occasionally a cockade. The Glengarry is acceptable for formal and informal wear, and dates back more than two centuries, when it first appeared in the Highlands as part of the military dress. Today, men and women wear the Glengarry bonnet, particularly for festive occasions and in pipe bands. You can make your very own Glengarry bonnet out of wool or wool felt, or even velvet with this easy pattern. Of course, cold weather means snuggling under blankets and quilts to warm up. The cute little Scottie quilt square makes a darling quilt or pillow and stitches up quickly. The bonus Scottie applique could be used in a variety of doll-sized craft projects, such as aprons, vests, zipper bags, tree skirts, tablecloths, placemats, and more. What fun to have a coordinated set for entertaining!
This pattern, by FROG Princess Fashions, is designed to fit 18" dolls such as American Girl®.

I love the whole series with this pattern! I loved the "Highlands Holiday Dress" with the available machine embroidery pattern for the Scotty Dog embellishments. But I was delighted when the designer added patterns for a Glengarry Hat, the absolutely adorable Scotty Dog Purse, and the quilt. The Glengarry Hat makes a great hat for your historical or international collections, though I think it's stylish for today. Did you see that the hat band matches the fabric of the Highlands Dress! While I used machine embroidery to embellish the dress, I embellished this purse pattern with DMC embroidery floss, three strands, and a running hand stitch, to outline the Scotty Dog. Made with black felt, it was easy to sew.
