15 DIY Doggy Clothes & Bandanas

Posted on Sep 8 2016 - 7:35pm by Susan Bewley

Do you love dressing up your dogs in cute outfits? I will freely admit, I enjoy dressing up my girls. Ivi especially is a great sport when it comes to playing dress up. When we were at BlogPaws, she loved showing her stuff in her pretty dress. As well, you almost never see someone dress up big dogs, making it quite fun to see people’s reactions, no matter if it is a simple shirt or a cute dress meant to make your dog feel like a canine princess. While I love dressing the girls up, my husband isn’t as much of a fan, usually preferring the girls wearing simple, amusing shirts, or bananas.

Since it is so hard finding anything for big dogs though, it usually means I have to look for custom made items or try making dog clothes on my own. Luckily, Pinterest has a variety of cute ideas, along with many of my favorite pet blogs. Best of all, many of them have patterns for clothes for dogs that are super easy to make, allowing even novice sewers like me the chance to make cute dog clothes. Below, you will find links to 15 of the best DIY Doggy Clothes and Bandannas. Make sure to tell us what you think in the comments below!

    My dog doesn’t like clothes, but he will wear bandannas and on occasion I can get him to wear a bowtie. Thanks to #5, I can make him some new ones.

    I love the “message” bandanna (like “I need my space”) I have a leash that’s bright yellow with “nervous” printed all down it to try to catch people’s attention before they rush up to my fear reactive dog. Has helped immensely with training.

    My dog Monty loves his bandana, and collar and jangly tags; it makes him feel part of things or something. He holds himself higher.

    These are some great ideas. My sister’s dog LOVES bandannas. He will actually go to a basket each morning and pick out the one he wants on. I think I’ll try to make the Doggie Dress Shirt Collar one for him for Christmas.

    I like dressing up my dog. Love the little tutu pattern and the dog coat made from a flannel shirt. I need to pull out my sewing machine, right now my dog could use a raincoat.
