Sewing clothes for your dog can be a great way to repurpose an old sweater,
t-shirt, or sweatshirt. And since quite a few of these designs call for working with
knit fabrics or sweater knits, here are some tips for sewing knits: Use a
ballpoint needle in your sewing machine, which will slide between the fibers of your
knit fabric instead of cutting through them. And use a special stretch stitch or a
tiny zigzag stitch when sewing your knit fabric so that your seams will stretch when
the finished item is worn.
Reinforce seams that will be subject to lots of stress (such as where bands and
tabs are attached) by sewing a second row of stitching over or right next to the
first row. And if an item has a more intricate design, or you’ll be making it from a
more costly fabric, you may want to make a “muslin” of the item first to be sure you
get the fit right before sewing the finished item.
And if you need to try the item on your dog before sewing your final seams, to be
on the safe side, use safety-pins to hold your seams together instead of straight
