Hmmm me thinks Teddie needs a condo now.  Grin  Only I think he would use the side to jump off and not the stairs.

You did an awesome job and it looks like you fur baby is really enjoying it! Smiley

I didn't know this.  I've taken my foster into petco/petsmart and have had no problems.  Maybe it's state to state?

Roll Eyes .........I have a Parson's Russell/Pit Bull Terrier mix........but I was thinkin' that if the harness was made with denim (from a jeans recon even!...... Tongue ).........it would hold him plenty fine........... Wink

Ooooooooooooohhhhh.......... Cheesy ........I might hafta even try combining my faves and try making him a quilted denim one........... Grin Grin Grin

That's a really good idea and would probably hold up stronger if made out of denim then regular cotton.  Keep me posted if you do make it; I'd love to see the end result.  And hear how it holds up. Cheesy

Aww I love the collar! 

I'm also a huge pittie fan.  Right now I'm fostering a English Bull Terrier/APBT and what a lover he is. I've had a Boxer/APBT too and she was such a doll. 

Great job on the collar, I love the fabric too. Cheesy

omg i love all the little shirts!!! i dress up my doggie too but im as crafty as you to make her custome clothes. i would totally buy all these shirts. im not sure which is my favorite, love the little monster but adore the matching t-shirts!!! phenomenal job! this rocks!
Lol thanks. Smiley  I do sell them but it's more of a "if" some one asks. I have a site up, but it hasn't been finished yet.  The shirts are $10 depending on graphics it can be a little bit more and harness are $15; plus shipping.
You could totally sell those harnesses. I want one for my 60 pound mutt! He's so strong though, I'd be worry he'd bust through my stitching... Part malamute, he'll pull threw anything.
I'd be scared to put a larger dog in one of those harnesses.  I have a Malamute mix too and she'd be off like the wind.  Shocked  I think 20lbs is the biggest I'd put in one of those harnesses.  Teddie (in pictures) is 15lbs and does do a little big of pulling, but the harness is strong enough to hold.  It's not just one stitch through I've gone over it a few times to make it stronger.

Thanks guys!

Tutorial for T-shirts
Material 1/2 - 3/4 of a yard(I chose black t-shirt material and polka dot cotton)

First lay out your material for the base of the shirt and pin it out, then cut around leaving about 1/2 inch all the way around.

Don't foregt to play with your pooch while doing so Smiley

I usually do some type of painted graphic on the front so it's not just plain, but you can do whatever.  I use regular acrylic fabirc paint (make sure it's not really thick) I also mix a little fabric medium so it can be washed etc and wont effect the picture.  You just mix it with the paint. This one had Deadbolt written on the back because that's one of Teddie's nicknames..

Finished Painting..

Now this part gets a bit difficult so just stay with me.. Smiley
You'll need four strips of material two and a half times as wide as you'd like the band around the arms, neck and waist to be.  I usually cut them 2 1/2 inches wide.  Remember they have to be long enough to go all the way around the base of the arm, neck and waist.
Teddie wears a medium
Neck: 15"
Arm: 15 1/2"
Waist: 26 1/2"
Underside: 8"
Back: 13"
I make all of the bands about 28" because that's what fits the waist, you want to have extra on each end.  You can cut the rest down once they're sewn on.
Match right sides together and sew.

Your shirt should look a little something like this once they're all sewn on.

Now you're ready to start turning the bands under.  Starting from the edge I fold the band in half.

Then match the fold with the stitch on the (shirt)

Your shirt should now look like this. Do this to all bands.

Once everything is pinned in place, sew along the edge on the top so you catch both the top and bottom.  I sew at 1/4" all the way around the bands.  Now that everything is together it's time to finish the shirt.

Flip the shirt over so you can start putting the sides together. Fallow the neck band and pin down the middle; making the top of the chest.  Then fallow the waist and sew up the middle; making the bottom part of the chest. 

Now you should be able to fold those two down where you'll sew along the middle of the top and bottom. I like to zig zag the edges giving them a more finished look and keeps the ends from fraying.

The finished product.

***I'm sorry it took so long tog et one of these up.  If you end up making one be sure to post it!  I'd love to see your creations. Smiley

I know it's an old thread,but it needs to be brought back up so we can get some ideas going!!

So far I've made Teddie(shih tzu):
*A huge baby/dog blanket that's made of quilted material witha fleece outer
*Two peopermint toys; on green one red

And I'm hoping to make some doggy treats to go around for all of our dogs.
Buster,Teddie, Duncan, Mahalo

Toys are always an easy and great gift for any animal.  You can buy a little box of catnip and make homemade toys.  I know that's the favorite gift in the house to our pets.

Without knowing or seeing the dog in person there is no way for any one to be able to tell you a size and know for sure.

The only thing I can think of is taking some type of measuring tape with you the next time you go over.  Slip his collar off and measure it.  Then you have the exact measurement.
