Chihuahua Clothing Patterns?

May 14, 2006

I have a small Chihuahua and I need patterns to make coats, clothes, maybe some booties. He's cold all the time. Are there some websites that have free ones? I've checked some. Any help would be great.

I found that when carmi was small (1 mo ) that a nice warm stocking cut off at the heel, made an excellent body warmer. and I stitched around the bottom so that it would not unravel. it worked great. also an old turtleneck sleeve, using the cuff as the collar, I cut 2 holes for the legs and presto another dress.


hope this helps some.

I went to Hobby Lobby and checked the pattern section and found alot of patterns for dogs. There is some with dresses and coats.
Also we went to a Thrift store and found some premie baby clothes and they seem to fit our chi's really well. Our chi's are 2.3lb and 2.7lb. They are 7 months old.
If you go to a search engine and type in dog clothes patterns you might find some there.

I have made my 2 little chi's some beautiful dresse. Now the people that I met at Pet Smart has asked me to make them for their dogs. I sell each dress for 15 dollars. They are only one of a kind dresses. I never make a dress the same so that you can be the only one that has one like it.

I would like to know that too. M chi/rat terrier is always cold as well. She sleeps under the comforter with me at night. She sleeps by my feet. If you find any free booties, please let me know. I would go to the ends of the earth for her. Her name is Precious and she is the best. Carole

I am 78 years old and my eyes aren't so good so I am wondering if anyone has second hand cloths (coats mainly for my Chihuahua, mixed with something else. The owner said he would probably get to 7-8 pounds as he is the runt of the litter.


Please let me know if you have a couple old coats, I am going to get him in 2 days. thank you Eunice O'Neil granny-b AT

I've got a dwarf bunny in the same size range. If you use the circle knitters sold at craft stores and in craft departments (the ones with the pegs) you can make a sweater for any small critter. Just look for a circle about the size of your critter's waist. I can't knit, and I made 2 sweaters for my bunny using this method:

Start by making a short tube for the neck, and then knit around 1/2 of the circle to get past the legs. If you have a girl, then knit a tube to just short of the hip bones. If you have a boy, knit a tube over the tummy, and then knit 1/2 the circle until you get near the hip bones. When the sweater is long enough, you with take it off the loom by looping the last loop back through the previous loop (etc.


until you get to the first loop and knot off). All the circle loom books show how to do this. It took me about 2 hours to make a very nice little sweater.
I'm sorry that I don't have a picture - in ascii art it looks like 0-0 (girl) or 0-0- (boy) with the pet's head to the left and the 1/2 circle bits laid over the spine. You can create this look with crochet or regular knitting, too.

I got the original idea from:
but my boy's sweaters have an extra flap attached to the back for more warmth.

If you get rid of the sleeves, pet sweaters are easy. I hope you have as much fun making them as I do.

I forgot to mention that the small circle knitters can be used to make knitted booties (tube-sock style) - make sure that you double-loop them for more warmth.

The chihuahua pattern above is great, as it can be sized well. I know I have 3 chihuahuas 3#, 5#, and 13#. It works great. Thanks

Hello, check on ebay under used dog clothes sz xxs or xs they have clothes by the lots and cute ones, too. For the girls there are dresses, jacket, shirts and pretty cheap also. Best buy

Check ebay for used dog clothes sz xxs . They have clothes by the lots people sell and they are cheap. Some lots you will get jackets, coats, shirts, skirts, etc. Also if you want little boots look under dog boots or used dog boots, great selection, but measure first so your baby is comfortable.


The tie on shoes are a pain, but the velcro closures are good. Look at the stiffness of the shoe, rubber sole on bottom and when measuring their foot include toenails.

I have a chihuahua/pom mix. She looks like a long haired chihuahua. However she "luvs" dressing up. I go to the local thrift stores & buy 0 to 3 month infant sweaters and alter the. I shorten the arms and if there is a button or zipper, I remove them & then sew the seam that will go on her belly. For boys I cut & hem sew most of the fit it around their chest so when they pee they don't get the clothes wet. My little Sabrins even has "a little black dress" lol.

Use a leg warmer and cut holes. That will work I think

I use socks from the dollar store for out little girl. Cut the toe off the make button holes where the legs should be. For Boots use newborn socks cut lengthwise (toe to opening) sew along the just you made on eat sock now you have 4 socks out of 1 pair of socks. For waterproofing find small balloons and use them over top of the boots.

I need some instructions for sewing my own dog clothing. I have just recently adopted (well was given as a birthday present!) a 7 week old tea cup Chihuahua puppy. Now what I'm looking for is some directions for a jacket (I have extra denim from old pants) and a hoodie (I have old sweats i don't use any more ) some shirts and some sweat shirts. Any thing at all! Thanks!

He will need a lot of clothes, I have 3 Chihuahuas, none are Tcup, but we keep the house cool and they shake and shiver, so I buy a lot of clothing on line for them. Ebay has a lot to sell. Your new baby looks like our Corky, he is so precious your little one. He will do his share of shivering. Starting him young to wear clothes is the best this way he wont fuss when he gets older. Love your baby to death as they have to have human affection. Sally-n-Tucson.

He's ADORABLE! But yes, I used to use sleeves of sweat shirts with the 2 holes - thats perfect! You may also be able to find some doll clothes that fits! (smiles) Here is my dog in his flannel we got from goodwill baby dept.

I found that it was cheaper and just plain easier to hit the clearance infant clothing racks. our dollar store even had a couple of cute t-shirts and onsies that could be altered - with just a couple of stitches here and there. Puppies grow so fast - they won't fit for long!!
