*Make Dog Stuff Spotlight *
* December 2018 *

Happy Holidays to you all! Now's the time to make, or finish making gifts, for dogs and for those who love them.

Need ideas? Check out our Dog Gifts section.

For items you can make out of yarns or fabric specifically for Christmas, check out the photos below. (If you celebrate the holidays in a different way, simply change the colors to suit.)



New to Making Dog Stuff?

If you're a newbie, we'd suggest you start with something simple such as Crocheted Dog Socks or Knitted Dog Leg Warmers; then gradually challenge yourself with more complex projects.

You may also want to check out other ideas on the Dog Accessories page first, before tackling something like a dog ramp or bed.




           How Did Make Dog Stuff Start?

Comet 1998-2010. Wasn't he a handsome fella?

This website began in 2006 to share items I'd made for Comet.

After that, I began looking for other things to make in an eco friendly, cost effective way. Scrounging and creativity became the name of the game!

I couldn't do all this without my sweet and generous hubby who helps with technical and engineering matters. 




Our Purpose

We aim to:

  • Teach you to make your own dog products using  recycled materials whenever possible.
  • Provide a springboard for you to come up with your own upcycled ideas.
  • Collect these ideas to provide a resource for other dog lovers all over the world. See how to share your stuff below.

Although there's no charge for most of the instructions for how to make our dog products, we do have a few specially engineered dog plans for wheelchairs and ramps, which are available for purchase at a relatively low cost.

Note that we also obtain a small amount of revenue from ads and Amazon or affiliate links (hence the request that you accept Cookies). However, we try to keep those to a minimum so as not to detract from the content. 

Thank you for your support!




Share Your Dog Stuff!

To share how you make dog stuff, simply contact us. 

Note that usable contributions that are of sufficient length become a stand-alone page on our site (for example, the  or the Dog Harness Dress by Cynthia from California).

Good ideas that are shorter are incorporated into existing pages, with credit given to you. Either way, people from all over the world may get to see what you've made!
