Recycle an Old Child Sized Sweater into Dog Couture!!!!

Goodwill was having an "all orange tags" sale day which made this cute little snowflake sweater 1.00.  I had an idea...and for 1.00 and this cute sweater, I could not pass up the chance to see if I could make it work.

Dixie Lee has outgrown all but ONE of her little doggie sweaters.  She is getting to be quiet the chubster in her golden years.  With the bad weather we have been experiencing in Texas her cute little pink sweater was not cutting it...this old gal likes to play and roll around to get her "scent" on things and the sweater was always dirty.  She needed more in her wardrobe, plus a gal likes variety.

I took the cute snowflake sweater, cut off the arms, hemmed the armholes, and cut a little slit at the neckline, on the back.  I wanted the snowflakes to be on HER back but this was made to be on a CHILD's front, so I did a wee adjustment and turned this cutie around.  I also had to make an adjustment at the bottom so her girlie parts had not make a mess of the bottom of the sweater.

Why pay 20 bucks for Doggie Couture?  Recycle a cute child's sweater!!!!
