Make 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!
