Introduction: Doggie Sweater

They say the mother of invention is necessity. It snowed and I needed a sweater for little Moxie. I used a sweater dress of mine that I no longer needed to make it.


  • old sweater you no long want
  • scissors
  • adhesive (I used Gorilla glue it's what I had on hand)

Step 1: Lay It Out

I got out an old sweater dress, and the scissors.

I laid it out on the floor.

Step 2: Cutting

I cut the sleeve off. Remember to leave on the seam, otherwise it will unravel over time. Lay sweater on top of your dog to see where to cut the leg holes. Cut a slit on each side of the seam.

Step 3: Done or So I Thought

Voila finished sweater!

Well then...

After a trial run I noticed Moxie stepping on the under side. Also, I thought it should be farther up around her neck.

Step 4: Onto the Second

I cut off other sleeve, laid the first one next to it to see where to move the slits to and cut slits in the second one.

Step 5: Success!

I then took the small buckle off the sweater and glued it to the back of the sweater and let dry. Voila new and improved sweater!
