The loyal and protective dog is a universal symbol of unconditional love and devotion. If the dog is your spirit animal we think you’ll love our spotted dog icon vintage cross stitch.
The spotted dog design (with supercute ears) in this little boxed icon was found in a 16th Century book of cross stitch patterns, produced in Europe by an unknown author. We have replicated it here for you to stitch.
We love the idea of bringing to life old patterns that were carefully crafted by hand using just pen and paintbrush.
