Charlie gets cold in the mornings and shivers. My friend showed me how to make him a sweater and it works great. I thought some of you might like to know what I did. I bought two used fleece sweaters at a used store for $2.50 each. I cut off the sleave and cut some holes for his legs. His head goes through the cuff. I cut it to fit him and so he would not pee on it. It fits him good and helps him stay warm. So for $5.00 dollars I got 4 sweaters that only takes minutes to make. There was no way I could pay for warm fleece sweaters at a pet store. I will post some pictures on his page if I can get him to sit still.

That's great! When my little pup, Annie was still tiny, we made her a sweater out of a sock, doing pretty close to what you describe with the sleeve. We used a low-cuff sock, so it could be the neck.
Dog clothes are so expensive at the boutiques! Momma bought me a new sweater for my birthday from the place she gets our food, cause not only was it lovely, it was marked way down! And it was pink, which is my colour.

Charlie that's awesome! I crocheted Sas a couple of sweaters....I'm not very good at it though so they didn't really fit right and she haaaaated them! I'll master it some day.

Thrift store cut ups is an awesome idea though. Way to be creative wink That is way cooler than designer!
