A few months back when my cat passed away I got a new kitty.He's a Manx that is only a few months old,so I didn't want to spend money on things like collars or harnesses when he will just out grow them in a week or two.Plus I have lots of extra fabric scraps laying around so I figured I'd just make the little fart one.
I'll attach a scan of a rough draft of a pattern I used for Mr Manxy's harness.
All you have to do is sew where the stitch marks are and make sure you LEAVE a OPENING to TURN IT RIGHT SIDE OUT.
Then hand stitch the hole closed and attach a D ring with a extra scrap of fabric to attach the leash to.
I just added snaps to Manxy's since he's not bad for trying to dart away.But if you are making one for a grown cat or your doggy make sure to use really sturdy hook and eyes or something of that nature so your pet can't break out of it.
