I've been into making my own dog stuff for a while. Dog accessories can get to be very expensive.
When you know how to sew, you can make most things for a fraction of the cost, and 10 times prettier. Here are some sewing patterns for dogs to get you started and give you some ideas.
I make most of my stuff from leftover scraps, this way I don't spend money on fabric. You can also use old blankets and sheets, worn out jeans and any other piece of fabric you find.
It's really fun to turn those useless things into new dog outfits! Ask your doggie if he'd like some clothes or a new dog bed. I bet he'll bark out a sure "YES!"
