DIY: 6 Dog Coats & Sweaters Round-Up

Last week’s post on the DIY Dog Rain Coat got me to thinking about all the other DIY dog coats & sweaters I’ve written about.  Here are a bunch of tutorials on how to make your dog her own coat—everything from upcycling to sewing to knitting to even weaving.

Cardigan Coat



Dog Raincoat from Old Jacket (for people) with pattern



Woven Coat with pattern



Oil Cloth Coat with 2 patterns



Sock Sweater



2 Different Sweaters to Knit



Though it’s not a tutorial, this is a great idea! Check out these super cool coats made out of broken umbrellas created by Taryn Zychal.

DIY: 2 Valentine’s Dog Sweaters

Today I have patterns for two different Valentine’s Day sweaters you can knit for your pup or a friend’s.  If you have a larger or smaller dog than these patterns will work for, check out this dog sweater calculator to resize them.  You can also use any pattern for a larger or smaller sweater and just add the designs to your own pattern.

I.  The hearts & bones sweater has a cute motif and has knitted straps to keep the sweater in place.

II.  This sweater has a heart with a bone shot through it and some crocheted trim.  (for more patterns by this designer for purchase, check out Kay’s shop on etsy MySavannahCottage)
