It's that time of year again. The time of year when the leaves on the trees begin to fall. The crisp cool air nips at your nose when you step outside. Your puppies or kitties shiver uncontrollably because the fall season has arrived.

The past few days and nights my 9lb dachshund has shivered nonstop thanks to the cold air. Even though he's obviously covered in fur, he has shorter hair and so his smooth coat hardly keeps him warm enough when playing outside.

What to do? What to do? Aha! I have a pair of tube socks I've never been able to fit (thanks to inheriting my Dad's big feet). Here is a tutorial to make your small breed bebe a tube sock shirt to keep them warmer this fall season.

What you'll need for this project:
- An old (or new pair) of tube socks (knee highs work well too)
- Scissors, sewing pins, a pen or marker, measuring tape, a straight edge or ruler
-Sewing machine
-About 30 minutes of free time

Once you've gather the needed materials head over to my blog for further instructions as there are TONS of pics and 12 simple steps to follow.

My parents' terriers are SO getting lots of new sock-sweaters. ^^ Those stripes are really cute.

In the ground where I want to live, I see these brand new faces I want to wear.

Wow that's great! Thank you so much for sharing!
I just got my 1st Chihuahuas and I want to make them (easy) clothes as I'm not too clever at sewing  Undecided  I haven't been able to find much on-line?  I found a tutorial using one sock, but they don't fit and mine are only puppies, so this is brilliant. Thanks so much!
