This Comfy fleece-lined Dog Carrier PDF Pattern and instruction file is available as an instant download. The dog purse is big enough to accommodate up to a 10 lb. dog. Inside dimensions are 8" x 11" and it features a fluffy removable pillow and an attached leash. The straps are wide and fleece-lined for your comfort. Two exterior pockets can be customized to carry anything you wish from your cell phone to a collapsible water bowl or poop bags. Computer generated pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with over 50 photographs will make this project accessible even for a novice sewer. I hold your hand the entire way making sure your project comes out looking professional. I designed this carrier because my 5 lb. Terrier Lucy likes to be carried around and will scratch on my legs until I pick her up. I do a lot of my work carrying her around in one of these bags. She loves it and snuggles in as soon as I put her in it, going to sleep and very happy to be toted around the house all day. I love the wide straps because even 5 lbs. is a lot to carry around all day! There are so many fabrics that will work well with this carrier -- I have made it with denim, duck cloth, and micro suede. Fleece options for the lining are huge with so many cute prints available. It's easy to find a coordinating quilting cotton for the trim as well. Designing it is the most fun ever! I keep seeing new prints and patterns I want to experiment with! I have given you tips and tricks to make the process easier gleaned from my 30+ years of sewing everything from custom draperies to Halloween costumes. I am an experienced bag maker and once sold custom-made purses in my retail store in Arizona. I include my email address in the pattern so you can ask if you have any questions while making it. Happy Sewing! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Sewing with some experience SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Outside dimensions: 9"x12"

I've been making stuff since I was a kid and tried to recreate a dress I had outgrown. I especially like making items for my four dogs and have a shop on Etsy selling custom-made dog harnesses, leather collars, doggy hats, and doggy backpacks. I want everyone to experience the fun of seeing their own pets wearing hand-made creations. It's so much fun!
