I'll never understand why buying clothes for small dogs gets so expensive! Our poor little short haird doxie gets so cold in the winter but I can't afford to buy clothes especially for doxies. So what to do...?

How about turn some baby clothes into doxie clothes?! Smiley

(I got the idea from this post http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=338830.0)

I discovered that Dylan wears a size 6-9 months... With a few modifications.

The first recon I tried was a fleecy hoodie.

Here it is before:



And here it is after:



(Extra long winded post with more pictures on my blog: http://wondrasworld.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/baby-clothes-recon.html )

The next was a long-sleeved Halloween shirt:



What it looks like finished:



(On my blog: http://wondrasworld.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/im-batty-about-you.html)

I freaking love them. Smiley (And Dylan does too!)

If I'm haunting the baby section at our local department store for my dog, is it time to think about having kids? Lol.

Haha, my mother does the same for her Doberman in the winters, turns out he's the same size as me. Grin He wears one of my old fleece sweaters in the winter. Yours look super fancy though, such a great idea!

Try getting the baby clothes at Goodwill or any other thrift store.  Like new but only a fraction of the cost compared to new.  Great use of existing resource.
