Doggie Vests

One of my favorite blogs in Kalyxcornucopia, a daily blog posted by Baxter, the red dachshund and his human. It is really cute and just fun reading. As I was reading one day, I noticed Baxter had a super cute harness/vest and the post said his human made it. I decided to make a few harnesses for my 2 little doxies. I got the pattern from Hancock Fabrics; Kwik Sew 3517. It was super easy and they turned out really cute. I made a few modifications to meet my specific needs. I got some blue herringbone denim and lime green fleece from the remnants bin, a 1/2 yard of nylon webbing, velcro, and a couple of D rings and got to work. See how they turned out.
