FREE Dog Clothing Patterns for Winter
Posted on December 10, 2009 by WayCoolDogs
FREE dog clothing patterns for winter come in pretty handy when winter is right around the corner. And once winter arrives, a lot of dogs cannot stand being outside in the cold or winter elements. This could be for many reasons — they have short hair or do not have the double coat of the northern dogs, older dogs are unable to handle the cold, health issues, or they are a dog who has been indoors most of their life.
Dog owners have choices to provide FREE dog clothing patterns for winter: they can give up and just buy them online or at local pet stores; a good search online comes up with all kinds of free dog patterns; or make them at home by sewing, crocheting or knitting. It is a personal choice depending on the dog, the budget, time, and knowledge of how to make them.
ADVANTAGES OF MAKING WINTER DOG CLOTHING AT HOME
With the economy the way it is now, the wisest choice is to make winter dog clothing at home. Money can be saved, a more personal choice of material can be used, a better fit can be provided on the pet owner’s. But better yet, a feeling of pride is achieved knowing you care enough for your pet to provide it with the best care possible for the winter.
We are not saying store bought dog clothing for winter is not good. For those who do not have the time to spend making clothing for their pet or simply do not have the green thumb for sewing — then shopping online or downtown is wise, choosing winter specials and sales. And in today’s times, there are many breed choices and styles available to choose from.
ADVICE ON MAKING WINTER DOG CLOTHING
Choosing the correct dog clothing pattern is very important, as a Chihuahua coat and one for a Great Dane are two different things! But choosing the correct fit for a mixed breed should begin with measurements, and recognizing what breed the dog is closest to.
This is not a problem, as dog clothing patterns are designed in many sizes, shapes and designs at pet stores or online, but choosing a free pattern to begin with not only will help the pocketbook but is good advice to begin sewing the first coat or jacket. FREE dog clothing patterns for winter not only help you save money, but provide warm clothing for your pet during cold winters.
