Here's a brief bit of info before pics. My dog is a picky eater, therefor she is quite skinny [though I'm fattening her up now, found food she likes]
It is very cold where I live. So I made her a hoodie. I told myself I'd never be one of those people who put their dogs in clothes... but... yeah.
On to pics!
Here's Sammy looking not so happy. She had to pee.

Hey! whatcha doin?

Aaaand, action shot in the snow.

Cute! Isn't it fun to put the pups in clothes? She looks a little like:"What's that thing stuck to my back"? I think she needs some snow boots!

I want to make her some boots, but I have no idea where to start. It's been raining for about 2 days straight now and it's all muddy and now she doesn't like walking in the grass. xD

Ok. Here's what ya do:
Get a tracing of her feet, maybe put some powder on her feet, have her step on dark paper.
Then, cut out a pattern about 1/2 inch bigger.
The back feet are the hard ones. You may have to make a couple tests to get it right over the heels. Now, get some craft foam, to use as insulation. Use a couple layers. Wetsuit material would be good too. Cut out a thick bottom fabric, spray glue the insulator on it. Sew on the seam line, with a long stitch.  Trim away excess foam close to stitching, so your seam won't be bulky. You can use felt or flat batting too.
Cut a rectangle of fabric, that will fit around the foot pattern.  sew up the side seam, then hem the top with an elastic casing. Probably best to use a wider elastic. You could leave a ruffle on the top, by making the casing an inch or so down.(In that case, allow about 2.5 inches to fold over)Stitch a tie on the center back spot, long enough to tie securely, over the elastic. Just to make sure the boots won't fall off.
Now, sew the tube to the foot pad, inside out. Turn, and There you go!
Just make sure they are long enough, and not too snug.
The ones on the back feet may be trickier, but you could also use socks for the tube part. That would go well over the heels. You still need the elastic, or even a velcro strap, with a belt-loop in front.
Does that make sense?

I love the fabric - is it a velour type fabric?
