Pattern Details

Do you have a male dog who urinates inappropriately on your stuff, has accidents, and/or is getting old? You will probably be like me, wondering, "Why didn't I have this pattern, or even these bellybands, before now!" Believe me, when I found out about what bellybands were for, I wish I knew about them while my dog, a Dalmatian named Chief, was still alive. I really believe in these bellybands! And so do my customers! This size is for a pug size, the male bellyband, with 23" to 25" girth / waist. It is 27 1/2" x 8", with 2 lengths of sew on Velcro / hook & loop 7" each length, measuring 4" wide by 7" long fastening area, with a pocket for a maxi pad or cut up diaper cloth to stay in place, as added protection, pocket made from stretch dance / swimwear nylon / spandex knit. If your dog is "scoochy", and you want the bellyband to stay on, I'd insert the elastic in the area on the pattern. I am told that this size of bellyband is SM / MD, for the largest of the toy breeds. Manufacturers vary in size, so I am going by their sizes, which is why I give you the measurements specifically. I've customized patterns for pugs & Yorkies. I have 2 pages of photo & text, step by step instructions in the pdf download, as well as 4 pages to make the bellyband pattern, and 2 pages to make the pocket. This bellyband is different than other dog bellybands, in that it has an absorbent pocket for a cut up diaper cloth or maxi pad, to keep them in place, so it is added protection. My customer, who had me make her bellybands for her Yorkshire terrier, was the one who pushed me to put this panel in, she swears by it, believing that it is an added, bonus feature that helps keep the "fluid" leaking from the dog in place. My other customers had me make this specific size bellyband for their dogs, male pugs, asking me to insert elastic inside, to keep the bellybands secure on the pugs, and it works. Most bellybands on the market are 2 thicker pieces of fabric sewn together, maybe a little elastic on the top & bottom edges, plus some Velcro for fastening, and that's it. They don't last long for the customers, and their dogs go through the ones on the market, quicker than they should. These bellybands will last longer. Thank you very much! If you need help, I have my photo & text, step by step tutorials available to view on & in video tutorials at Links to buy supplies are on the last page of the download- don't forget to use store coupons to save $$$ !!! I think you can make the bellybands for as little as $10 a piece, give or take, if you buy on sale or use coupons. And you can transfer the patterns onto contact paper, to make more bellybands! THANK YOU! Other options and tips: transfer pattern pages, cut down and taped together, to contact paper, to preserve the pattern for making future bellybands, and/or transfer paper pattern onto clear thicker gauge vinyl OR taped together, clear, sheet protector pages, cut to the size of the pattern, and use to figure out layout of pattern on fabric, to determine how much fabric to buy, in case you are matching up outer & inner lining fabric panels' designs on fabric, or you want to feature a certain aspect of the fabric's surface design, centered Bellyband pattern & download by Kristie Hubler, inventor, pattern maker, product designer, artist, author, & owner of 1864 Sunset Avenue Deptford, NJ 08096 609-970-4548 Copyright protected pattern and download by Kristie Hubler.
