Would you believe I was just looking for a doggie backpack at Petco last night? The backpacks (with added weight) are supposed to give an extra work out, to doggies on their walks. And my fattie rottie sure needs that. Wow, it never even dawned on me to make one, and I am always saying " I could make that!" Anyway great job. I would love to read more about how you constructed it.

This is awesome! Last March me and my beau adopted our spunky Jack Russel Ozzy and seeing as we all love hiking/camping/doing anything outdoors together I've been meaning to make him a backpack so that he can carry his own water, food, treats, and poop bags in, BUT being the procrastinator that I am... I haven't gotten around to it yet. You have motivated me.

I'm not sure if it is just me, but the link you posted to your tutorial isn't working.

Also, thanks for making a tute! You've made my life that much simpler. Haha.

You can always try resizing it in photoshop or whatever program you are using and then re-upload it to the gallery.
I'm not sure if the crafster's gallery automatically resizes images though...

It's perfectly fine! (I feel like I'm hi-jacking your thread - but I'm excited)

I also wanted you to know that I hit the "This Rocks" button just because it has so many possibilities and it is so useful (for those of us who have to carry around all sorts of doggie stuff). Also those damn backpacks over at Petsmart and such places are ugly and rather expensive... and I'm cheap and artsy...

I was just thinking today about what I could make to sell at our local animal fundraiser and stumbled upon this thread.  I had thought about making backpacks before because I have one that I use daily on our walks, but I was not sure how to put it together.  I looked at your pictures and got totally inspired!!!  I ran out to the fabric store and got the materials to make a bag of my own.  I am planning on making a few modifications because I simply DO NOT DO ZIPPERS, but the idea is the same.  I will post some pictures when I finish it.  Thanks for the inspiration!!!
