- Old sweatshirts
- measuring tape
- lace or other trim
I hit up Goodwill, yard sales and other thrift stores for gently worn large and extra large sweatshirts. My kitty weighs a little over 6 pounds so the large is perfect. If your pet is bigger, go with a bigger size sweatshirt. For this project you are only using the arms of the shirt. You can use the rest of the shirt for dust cloths or to wash the car with!
Step 1: Cutting the Sleeves
Step 2: Leg Holes
Now if you are in a hurry or want a plain sweater, you're done. However, if you want decoration, then proceed to the next step.
For a larger animal, you would need to use a larger size. For kittens or puppies you could use a child's size sweatshirt.
Hope you enjoy it, I look forward to your feedback. Remember, keep your furfaces warm this winter!
