Dog Clothes Category: Coats
1. Canine Carhartt Coat
If I had a Carhartt coat laying around, I would definitely try this pattern! This coat turned out fantastic, looks like it will keep the dog very warm, and it is a great addition to this dog’s clothes lineup! Very stylish and what a great tutorial!
2. Recycled Jacket Dog Coat
This is another pattern where if you have an extra jacket lying around, then you won’t need much in supplies! You could also pick up a coat from the thrift store if you didn’t want to use a more expensive item of your own.
3. Custom and Quick Cozy Dog Coat
Did it just start snowing unexpectedly? Or maybe you just want to do a quick project? Either way, this tutorial states you can make this canine coat in under an hour! The instructions and step-by-step pictures make this an easy addition to your dog closet for any skill level.
4. Adjustable Water-Resistant Dog Coat
With fleece sewn in under the water-resistant exterior, this addition to your dog’s clothes is sure to keep them warm and dry! The pattern is made for a small dog but with some creativity, we are sure you can size it up as necessary.
Dog Clothes Category: Bandanas and Collars
5. Bandana for any Pet
This simple addition can bring lots of color and variety to your dog’s clothes! They are easy, cute and even come with a video tutorial. The best part is, you’re not actually sewing buckles into the collar, it just slips over the existing collar making it easy to switch out as often as you would like.
6. Recycled Doggie Dress Shirt Collar
Here is another quick way to add some style to your canine’s wardrobe! The pictures don’t do this article and all its options justice! This tutorial is another one where you can use clothes you may already have or be able to pick up fairly cheap meaning you are not having to sew this one from scratch! Would love to see what some of our readers create from this tutorial!
7. No Sew Pet Bandana Collar
This is a really easy option for those hoping not to have to pull out the sewing machine and it is also a very trendy style! You could easily alter the pattern to change the style or the size of the bandana. This one is not meant to slide over your pet’s existing collar so be sure to have some buckles on hand when you get started.
Dog Clothes Category: Cozy and Comfy
8. Small Dog Pajama Pattern Free
Your dog clothes collection wouldn’t be complete without a set of these small dog pajamas! This is another pattern that can be made from a recycled item so you can easily make this from a shirt you already have! There are pictures and instructions available but if you would prefer not to have to adjust for size, you could purchase the premium pattern and have all the work done for you.
9. No Sew 5 Minute Dog Sweater
Five minutes?! Someone please test this out and let us know if it is true! Another pattern for those that like to recycle! The creator does say that they have fancier dog clothes, this is just for when the dog is going to get dirty. This will for sure be good for a crafter of ANY skill level but is only limited to those with smaller pups. There is no way I am finding a sweater with a sleeve big enough for my Doberman…
Dog Clothes Category: Dresses
10. Pooches Summer Cami Top or Dress
Be ready for warm weather this pattern that gives you not one, but two pieces of clothing to add to the dog’s closet! The instructions are not very detailed, but some questions are answered in the comments and the creator welcomes you to reach out.
11. Bella Frill Doggie Dress
This pattern is from the same creator that provided the above pattern, and it is just the cutest! The story about the dog behind the design is adorable as well. The creator has offered this pattern in multiple sizes, and it should be a fun one to try out with different fabrics.
