Project

Upcycled dog coat

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Having the idea and seeing it through! It was fun figuring out how to do this, especially the finishing. I ended up using a nice fleece binding on the edges. I also figured out how to make the belly strap from the vest collar. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Go for it! It helps to have a patient dog like Chester who tolerated lots of fittings!

What you will need

  • Repurposed child's fleece lined quilted vest
