Hot Diggity Dog

While staying at home, I have been doing a lot of craft and sewing. I recently purchased a denim vest for my dog and decided to spruce it up and add a rockabilly twist!

Here is what you will need:

  1. Dogs denim vest

2. Patches, buttons or cool fabric 

3. Scissors

4. Thread

5. Needle

6. Iron

Find patches, buttons or fabric that you want to attach to the vest. You can get these from items laying around at home, on eBay and Etsy or vintage market stalls. Before attaching, lay your accessories on the vest to work out the best positioning for them.

Once you have worked out the best layout, taking a photo is a good way to remember! Then you can finally iron on patches, sew on your buttons or fabric swatches.

To make your iron-on patches secure, I highly recommend sewing them on! Dogs can get rough, and you will want this cute denim vest to be durable and last.

If you are extra creative, you could also choose to embroider on the vest or paint designs with fabric paints.

I would recommend only decorating along the back of the vest, that way nothing will irritate your dog or be likely to fall off. Also, it means all your creative work will be always visible!

As you can see below, your finished work will help your dog be the coolest dog in the park. 😂

I hope my blog has inspired you to create a cool dog vest for your four legged family member. You could go for any theme or colour scheme you wanted… Go wild! Send me photos of your dog in his/her vest. I would love to see them!

Back soon….
