a dog sweater from an old toddler sweater
If you have a small
dog, you probably know how cool they can get in the wintertime.
But when doggie sweaters can cost 30 or $40 of the pet store,
if not more, it doesn't make much money sense to buy one of
them unless you have the money to spare. Fortunately, you
can easily make one yourself. And best of all no knitting
skills are required.
Simply take one
of your toddlers outgrown sweaters, or pick up the hands and
it went from a thrift store, and try it on your dog for size.
Measure the "legs" and you will then want to carefully
cut to a bout half an inch from the paws, making sure you
take the sweater off your dog first.
Then let some leftover
yarn, "sew" the edges of the sweater doesn't unravel.
And depending on the girth of your dog, you may need to use
some of this yarn at the bottom of the sweater to use as a
drawstring, so the sweater doesn't drag on the ground.
Voila, you have
a doggie sweater!
