    Been sewing for the dog

    I have been sewing for my little dog. He's not a frenchie, but I couldn't find anywhere else to post it. He is elderly with various health problems. Recently he has been getting confused and has tinkled on the floor. So, to save my house and marriage (haha) I decided to make him some little "diapers" to wear around the house. I always catch him when he starts to tinkle, and run him outside. These are just to catch the little that was hitting the floor before I get him outside. He seems to not be bothered by them at all. I used 2 layers of thick towel material, and some scrap fabric I already had. It happened to be John Deere tractor fabric. I also made him a new coat. He has lost weight in the last year and his old coat was too big. A good friend has an embroidery machine. She let me come over and put his name and a snowman on it. I lined it with fleece. He likes it, but it's not cold enough for it yet.

    Oh, cute! I love the John Deere ones!! I have one very similar for Leo, just a different pattern, but it's a little too big for him and he keeps slipping out of it!! Little bugger!
    (I'm referring to the belly band that is). The coat is adorable!

    Thanks everyone! They were really easy to make. For the jacket, I just layed his old coat on a piece of newspaper and traced it. Then, I made it smaller where I needed to. For the belly bands, I just measured him and cut them out and sewed them. It took maybe 15 minutes for every 2.

    Re: Been sewing for the dog

    Thanks guys! He is very much loved, but in pretty bad health. It makes me tear up just thinking about losing him one day.

    Bullmama, I will look into that site. I feel silly really posting because I don't even have a French bulldog, or any bulldog for that matter. One day though, one day .

    Me too, I was so close but I was second in line for a girl and my Frenchie breeder only had one girl, so I will try to be patient! Don't ever feel silly about posting, it is not about having one it's about loving them! You don't have to own to love! Although, someday we will, and then we can really learn what all the fuss is about!
