Upcycled Doggy Leg Warmers




You know you've made a great dog product...when it stays on!  Unlike dog shoes, these leg warmers stayed on for hours, no problem.  They were also incredibly easy to make.  Just see instructions below and your dog can have his own leg warmers within the next hour!!!

INSTRUCTIONS

Find an old pair of socks (for bigger dogs, use knee highs and cut them to the desired length).  Cut the socks at the bottom of the ankle area.


Then cut the top part in half.


You should now have 4 pieces.  Turn them all inside out and sew the new edges together leaving the top and bottom edges open (the type of fabric my socks were made of required hand stitching instead of the sewing machine).  Take in as much as you need depending on the width of your dog's legs.


Reverse them again, and voila!!!  Sooooo simple!!


EXTRA NOTES

For extra cuteness, add a bow at the top of each legging, add ruffles, add rhinestones...you get the point.

The stretchier the socks are, the better they will stay on.  Also, thicker socks look best.  Depending on the type of material, some leg warmers might need to be hemmed at the top and bottom holes.  

I hope you enjoyed!!!

Awe, these are adorable. I love it!
I've often used baby socks with a few pieces of velcro added to the top for my dog's if they had a pad problem. :o

I'm just wondering...do they not try to chew them off?
I think they are really cute, but do wonder about that.

@ Jus Shar Designs - I think it depends on the dog! Sebastian has never tried to chew them off. He is such a good sport and loves playing dress up.

Going to make this for my pup for post acl surgery to help keep her leg warm since her entire leg will be shaved for the procedure. Cute and functional :)

I made one of them for my dog. Tried it on and he immediately began trying to chew and rip it off. Glad I didn't make the other three. Haha great concept though.

Like people, dogs also need food, clothing and accommodation. Therefore, before feeding the dog, you must wash the various living utensils of the dog.
