Sew for Pets and Shelters

Free Patterns to Fill Needs for Pets

Sewing for pets is a great way to expand and explore your sewing skills. I have yet to hear a pet be critical of anyone's sewing skills.... they just love having a new bed, blanket or toy. Sew for your own pet or sew for your local shelter. Shelters are always in need of bedding and toy for animals who have no one to care for them.
