I have recently become the mother of a very cute, 3 year old, black female toy Poodle. She is a rescue from a puppy mill and my best Valentine present ever. I would like to know if there is a place to go for free clothes patterns?

I went to the op shop and brought a toddler's vest for my little dog "Maxie". I took the sides in and cut the middle out and then zipped it up the back. I have done several for him; they are nice and warm for the winter. You can get cheap ones from The Salvo's, also. (05/29/2010)

I would like to know where I can go and get some free patterns for dog clothes. I am also looking for recipes for dog treats.

Petite Puppy Patterns. Easy to sew dog clothes patterns.
I know you wanted free patterns, but Wal-mart carries them for pretty cheap and they are cute things. (05/12/2008)
Mix 1/3 cup of milk to 1 cup of flour and add some bullion or other spices for flavoring roll the dough and cut to desired shape and thickness and bake in a 350 degree oven for 15 min. My dogs totally love them. (06/13/2008)
I love to recycle clothes so I took this sweater that didn't fit me anymore which was a J Crew. I cut the sleeves off. I added recycled black leather trim around the arm holes. I sewed the extra collar down which makes a thick warm collar that goes up almost to her ears. I sewed the center of the sweater together, sewed the button holes together and added leather trim about 3-4 inches wide with dog bones appliquéd to the bottom of the sweater edge. Absolutely adorable and I made it all with supplies on hand at home. I usually buy material like this leather coat that was well worn from a thrift store for $5 and I recycled the leather for other projects. (10/24/2008)

I need dog clothes patterns. Does anyone have some?
I want to make dog clothing but don't know where to find free patterns. I'm thinking of making things such as snoods, coats, etc. Does anyone have any other suggestions for things I can sew in the pet arena?
