1  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Cool Chihuahua clothes made from thrift store finds on: August 19, 2007 11:04:30 AM
This site is just making me crafty.  After looking at several of the dog clothes that were made on here, I was inspired to do the same.

Here is what I came up with. 

1st is Josey in her flower power suit.  (She hates the flash, that is why she looks terrified.)  This was a scarf, I used one of her coats as a pattern. The best part is you really don't have to sew anything but the velcro.

2nd Princess outfit.  This was a small purse I found at the thrift store.  (I wish I had taken a before picture).  I think I need to add some trim around the bottom, it looks pretty ruff.  I used the purse handles for her belly and neck straps.

thanks for looking
Jo-Ann

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Pet-Related Crafts: Completed Projects / Hip carrying bags for my little Chihuahua on: August 18, 2007 06:40:02 PM
Ok, these are pretty ruff since I am new at sewing, so no closeups. LOL  I made 3 different bags.  I did a search on line for baby slings and found all sorts of patterns.  My favorite was http://www.sleepingbaby.net/jan/Baby/no_sew.html
Her site offers a no sew way to make the sling.  I did sew my fabric into a long rectangle though, so that the suede would be on both sides.

2nd bag, leopard print.  the rings are sewed on.  Used this link

and lastly my cool hippie bag.  I just made this design up after seeing a similar bag for $50.00 in a dog magazine.
thanks
Jo-Ann
