Give your dog a treat by making DIY for dog food. Whether your pooch is a lap pup or a full-sized pamper, he or she needs to have their favorite treat to help curb their appetite. There are many recipes out there, but I prefer to make my own dog treats for my dogs’ nutrition and safety. Why not? It’s healthy for them and good for your wallet.
Bow-Wow! Get your day for dog sewing on with these 36 fun DIY dog-related projects. From a cute Pomeranian sweater to an outdoor bone set, this companion for Crafting for Cat Women features 36 adorable projects for dog owners and their furry friends. I like to make collars, sashes, purses, and even a headband. If you don’t know how to sew or don’t have a sewing machine of any kind, there are plenty of books or even books on the topic of DIY dog crafts that will show you how to put together these projects correctly.
If you’re having trouble getting the pattern orientation of your fabric right, consider starting with a few squares of a larger piece of fabric to work on your project. Use a server or even your straight edge to follow the pattern. Sew the squares together to form a bow tie. This easy DIY for dog sewing project is great for working on small areas, but if the pattern orientation doesn’t read well you can also use some pins to make holes for the eyelets. Or you could just leave that part out altogether.
Another easy DIY for dog sew together is a simple chain stitch project. Choose a fabric that allows you to sew easily, and start with a chain that’s a little longer than what you’ll sew it to. Starting in the center, make a loop hole in the end of the chain and fasten a dog bow tie onto the chain. Fasten the rest of the chain through the first loop. Tie another knot at the beginning or end of the line to secure the bow tie.
A simple but effective DIY for dog sew together that I’ve seen a lot of people not make is the folding scarf or bow. This is done by sewing two separate fabrics together, then cutting strips of one of the fabrics and folding the resulting strip into thirds. You then sew the inner fabric together, forming a triangle. You fold the outer fabric in half diagonally, then fold the triangle in half going half way around. Then pin the two fabrics together, and sew them up neatly.
The final step in this DIY for dog sew together is to sew the remaining raw edges together, forming a clean line along the length of the entire strip. If desired, sew some decorative buttons onto the fabric. You can also add a ribbon to the ends of the strip for a fancier look. When completed, simply slip your hand under the folded edge to remove the loose end. Then carefully untie the fabric and gently brush the finished looped edge of the strip along the floor until the ends are tied together and securely held in place!
