Making & Sewing things for
your Dog or Puppy
Twiggy is ready for her 1st "Fashion

|About Sewing for
Dogs and Puppies-
||There are many neat
things you could make for your dog or puppy, like; coats, clothes, dog
costumes, a stocking for Christmas, doggie beds, toys, and doggy quilts.
Take care when making clothing for your dog in not having it too tight,
and only have him/her wear costumes in your site. If you intend on
having costumes or clothes for your dog, it is best to start them off as
puppies so they will get used to the fact of wearing clothes, or hats.
Most importantly, have fun with your dog and what you make it!!!
|Best Fabric to use-
||Stay clear of "itchy"
fabrics. Dogs, just like humans can be bothered by fabric that is
itchy or uncomfortable. Also, stay away from fabric that may make
one sweat. The best fabrics for dog clothes and coats would be 100 %
cotton fabrics that "breathe." Also flannel and fleece are good for
|Easy Type Patterns-
||There are many "easy
to sew" dog coats and garment patterns in your local fabric store. As a
matter of fact, I haven't come across a difficult dog pattern yet.
Find ones with just simple coats and patterns that say "easy" or "make in
an hour" type of patterns.
||For beginner sewers
just stay clear of patterns that look difficult or have many pattern
pieces. If you are a beginner than start with a simple dog coat, it
should only have 1-3 pattern pieces.
|Cost and Fabric
||Even bigger dogs are
much smaller than humans so you will not need as much fabric, thus,
cutting your cost down. For a smaller dog, you could make a dog coat
with about 3/4 of a yard of fabric.
||Remember to make it
fun for your dog. Compliment him/her while you are measuring them so
they think it is fun. Dog coats are a great idea for those cool fall
days and winter walks.
