The smaller a dog is, the harder it is to find them a harness that will fit them properly. This tutorial will show you how to make a custom fitting small dog harness using grosgrain ribbon. Since I do not own a small dog, Mr. Stuffie is going to be the model. He is very obedient and patient :)

If you liked this tutorial, I have a bunch more like them at my blog

*NOTE* the materials used for this harness are suitable for small dogs weighing 10 pounds and under only! If you want to make this style of harness for a larger dog you must use a sturdier material like nylon webbing.

Step 1: Tools And Supplies

For this project you will need; a sewing machine, a plastic snap, D-ring and slider, a marking pen, scissors, pins, one large hole bead and three feet of any kind of ribbon that you wish. The size of the hardware is dependent on the width of the ribbon that you choose to use. My ribbon was 3/4" wide, so I needed 3/4" hardware.
