‘The World’s Greatest Dog Show’ kicked off yesterday! A celebration of all things canine, the first Crufts show took place in 1891, over 120 years ago. The show was named after its founder, Charles Cruft, who first started making a living selling ‘dog cakes’!
These days, Crufts celebrates all aspects of dogs; from working dogs, to the dog show, to dog accessories. If you have a furry friend, why not get into the spirit of things and stitch up a dog coat? We’ve got patterns for all shapes and sizes – read on to find out more.
