Nosing around etsy looking for holiday gifts, I bumped into all these adorable photos of adorable dogs in adorable handmade sweaters. 21 dogs in sweaters on Retro Renovation, you might ask? Heck, yeah, they belong here because first of all, retro dogs are a regular category considering I have a dog named Astro, after the Jetson’s pup. Above: Melody’s pretty pup shows off her handmade dog sweater, $30 from 44softpawz. Yes, can you believe it, 20 more adorable dogs in adorable sweaters – cute, cuter, cutest all the way to the end – click on through what are you waiting for! –>
Second, we often talk about vintage and upcycling, and I made Astro a sweater last year, out of recycled wool. Above: Cute overload in a handmade knit sweater and matching cap, $36 from thedoggiemarket. Owner Robin says, “That cute pug by the way is my baby, Buford. He’s a very good sport and gets lots of carrots as treats for modeling.”
Third, because I’ve been writing about handmade gifts from etsy to buy for the holidays. Doesn’t woofie deserve a little something, too? Above: More orange luv, and in granny squares, too. <3. Handmade dog sweater from HepsibabaBowWow, $54.
