Hello! Today I'd love to share with you some dog booties that I made for my dog.
We looked all over but couldn't find any that suited, so I looked at some at the pet store that were for smaller dogs and figured I could do the same.
I went to a sewing shop and bought some velcro without the sticky stuff on it.
I missed a picture of the fleece before I started.
I cut it into strips 12 inches long by 4 inches wide.
I cut the poky velcro strip to 4 inches and sewed it on close to the top of the felt.
Then in the picture below you can see the soft velcro side is turned so that it doesn't "stick" to the poky side. I laid down the soft velcro across the poky stuff, then flopped the other side of the fleece over so that it matched up with the top of the other side. (so that it looks like I'm sewing it inside out)
You have to do this with the velcro, or when you wrap it around the dog's leg it actually attaches correctly. No need to ask how I came to that conclusion. ~smiles~
Then all I did was sew down one side, and then the other.
Turned it right side out and was done. Simple!
Next pictures shows how it is sewn in so that nothing will catch on it and rip it off.
Then I just wrapped the soft velcro over on itself and stuck it to the poky side until it's needed.
So nice to have these finished and our dog can use them. She's a bit older and her feet get cold faster so this was a simple solution to that. She loves being outside, and this just makes her a bit more comfortable...after she gets used to them that is.
I'm sure you've seen dogs try booties on for the first time...a bit of a giggle fest often follows for those watching.
Thanks for popping by!
Hope you have a wonderful day!
