lol, i usually make them for chairty these days, occasionally I put some on ebay with most (usually 90%) of profits going to a dog related charity.

I have tonnes of jumpers and dresses and little toys I am making for someone for a charity day theyre helping run, keeps my arthritic fingers going!

Well i personally dont dress my dogs up everyday, they only wear clothes for a reason ie it is cold out.

I figured if the clothing I make has a purpose then why not have something nice, so being made from wool the dresses are warm.

I make more jumpers than dresses really.

Your dogs are sooo cute!! And you did a great job on the dresses! Some people will pay a lot of money for hand knitted doggy clothes like that.

thanks for the lovely comments.
I actually put one on ebay at the end of winter, with 90% of profit going to dogs trust, and was amazed that it sold for £11 !!!!!!

Most of my stuff is for charity, else my dogs would end up with bigger wardrobes than me lol.

Can I just ask what sort of dog is DJ? He is so sweet!!!

Thanks! He really is a very good boy. He's a Boston terrier/minpin mix :D

Hubby & I own a doggy boutique & some times I am surprised at the money people will pay for cute dog clothes! Really darling stuff tho!
That's great of you to donate the money you make to charity!

Youre so lucky owning a boutique, I would love to do something like that here in the UK, but just dont have the money to get started on it.

The pic with the boy and chihuahua is frame worthy. Great pics, too. I didn't think they were bad at all.

aww thanks, that one is actually a few months old, that was the day we bought that girl home to us.
She is still best friends with my youngest tho, always on the sofa with him having cuddles.

I hope to get better at taking photos, trying to find a good inexpensive course of some sort.

Well, whether dressing a dog up is right or wrong, I would have loved one of those little pink and white dresses for my Inga when she was alive. It is so unfair that they do not make cute things for larger breed dogs. I was stuck with a plain red and black jacket, a blue hoodie (ugly) and a tan with fur pea coat. She looked manly in all of them. I always wanted a girly outfit for her. lol Guess it wasn't meant to be.

Your dogs are adorable dressed up or not. :)
