Step 1: Materials Needed
Thread and Bobbin
Industrial Strength Velco
2 different colors of Materials
Paper for creating pattern
Step 2: Prewash and iron your fabric
Step 3: Measure your pet
Don't forget to write this down somewhere.
Step 4: Cutting out Pieces
Step 5: Sewing straps and collar
Put your materials right sides (the side you want showing) together and the batting on the bottom. Sew around the entire piece except for one end. Clip the corners avoiding any stitches.
Do this to both straps and collar.
Turn the tube that you created and the collar right sides out and then press flat. Stitch around the outside. You do not need to stitch the open end.
Step 6: Attaching the straps
Lay the straps on top of the fabric and pin them in place somewhere in the middle of the strap just to hold them in place. On the pattern you will see 2 rectangular drawings, this is where you will put the straps.
Now lay the underside fabric on top of that. Pin all pieces together to avoid slipping. I used a nylon fabric so it really slips.
Sew around the entire piece, leaving the neck area open.
Step 7: Finishing the body
Top stitch around the entire piece like you did the straps and collar.
Step 8: Attaching Velcro to Body
Repeat this step for both straps.
