Curlicue Doggie Jacket
(Metro Manila, Philippines)
This is a nice piece of homemade doggie clothing because it's fashionable, it helps the environment, and it makes dogs feel like they're part of the human world.
A denim jacket you've outgrown
Needle and thread
Embroidery floss and embroidery needle
Colorful magazine pages (no text, no people)
Curlicue punch (or pen and scissors)
Fabric glue (optional)
If the denim jacket is too big for your dog, re-size it with the needle and thread.
Note: This jacket should only cover the front legs and chest, not the whole body, so re-size to that.
Now, using the curlicue punch, punch out a long curlicue on the magazine page (or draw curlicues and cut out).
Sew or glue into place on the jacket.
For additional decor, embroider things like flowers, butterflies, hearts, or stars.
This jacket is nicely paired with doggie sunglasses (or Doggles), a doggy skirt,and a cute doggy bow on a barrette.
