With the weather getting colder by the day, it’s time to bundle up as much as possible. Not just you, but your dog, too!
If you don’t have a pup with super thick fur, a sweater can actually be beneficial to them. It’ll help keep them warm when it’s cold– and it looks super cute!
Making a sweater for a dog is actually incredibly simple. It’s one of the easiest projects I’ve done. Not only is it a pretty small project, but it’s a quick one, too.
First, make sure your dog is actually in need of a sweater. Huskies and other thick-fur dogs don’t need them, and they can overheat. Consult your vet before you make anything.
Now you’ve got to create a pattern. If your dog already has an outfit, you can use that to create your pattern. Otherwise, you’ll want to take some measurements and make a pattern.
Once you take the pattern, you’ll want to note a couple of things: the stretch of your fabric, for example, allows you to know how large of a seam allowance you will need.
You can recycle an old sweater to make this adorable dog outfit, so get out those old outfits and get ready to sew!
