I made a jacket for a friend's dog as a Christmas present. He just got a hair cut, and she's going to be bringing him to Wisconsin for the holidays. I didn't want him to freeze his tail off, so I made him a little fleece coat. It was really easy to make...maybe 30 minutes from cutting to snipping the last of the threads off.

Here's one of my babies modeling it. It was made for a dog smaller than mine.



I used a leopard print fleece and a black fleece, and it's reversible. I've got more fleece leftover from other projects, so I'm planning on making more in my dogs' sizes.

that is so cute! I'd like to make a jacket for my dog, even though he hates them. I have an American Bulldog that has a thin coat of hair. PS your dog is so cute Smiley

Sooo cute... Cheesy What a thoughtful thing to do for your friend's dog!!  I was thinking about making a reversible felt/fleece coat for my black Lab.  I'd like to protect his paws from the salt and ice, too, but I don't know how to make the boots stay on his feet??

I need to make this for my pups. We live in Florida and are moving to Montana. They are big babies about being cold.

I'm going to make a couple for my dogs also. It was actually really easy. Somewhere I have a picture of the general shape, but I can't find it. It kind of looks like a long bib with tabs on the side.

I also had to add that your Sweet dog lucks like a much skinnier version of my dog.
