This weekend, I completed a custom order via my etsy shop, Wienermania. My customer sent me a beautiful blue handknit sweater in a luxury yarn that was accidentally washed - a genuine knitting "Waterloo." I have cut many cashmere sweaters in my time, but I hated to cut this one! All the same, it made a lovely set of dachshunds - a mum and a pup - and gave the dogs a very nice weight.
To give the stuffies a little color, I made each dog a removeable turtleneck sweater. This is very easy to do and would even work for a REAL, LIVE, small dog if you have one. Just take the sleeve of a felted sweater, cut leg holes, and adjust the length accordingly.
The felted sweater doxies I made earlier this year are now completely sold out! I so enjoyed making the bigger one that, if it continues to snow, I may make a few more for the holidays.
