There's nothing worse than looking out the window and seeing your poor pup shaking in the winter air, miserable because their coat isn't nearly warm enough to shield them from the chilly breeze.
That's exactly the problem that my friend Will had with his lovable pit bull Honey. Her short fur coat was perfect for the desert heat they endured through their many escapades across the country, but settling into the mountains of Virginia in late fall proved miserable for poor Honey and her short fur. With a spare Carhartt lying around, Will asked if I could transform it into a coat that Honey could wear during the cold winter months. And how could I turn down a face like hers?
So now I'm here to show to you the way to make a Carhartt coat for your own pup, whether they need the extra warmth or just want to look super stylish!
Step 1: Materials You'll Need
Here are the materials you'll need for this escapade:
XL Carhartt coat
black thick thread
2 x 7” zippers
1 exceptionally patient dog
2 people (1 to hold the exceptionally patient dog, 1 to pin jacket)
