12+ cutest sewing ideas for dogs

sewing ideas for dogs
When we first adopted our dog, Yoshi, he was totally spoiled! For a few years, he was treated like royalty, until we had kids. As the story often goes, he fell down a rung or two, getting less attention and love than before we had kids. I ought to make it up to him and make one of these cute sewing ideas for dogs!

A few notes:

  • please be safe and supervise your dog when they’re chewing on any of the DIY dog toys!
  • when you’re stuffed dog beds, shred up your waste fabric and use it instead of stuffing
