Animal clothing is becoming increasingly popular with pet owners around the world and is a widely growing phenomenon, especially for small animals like teacup breed dogs and even ferrets. However, purchasing these animal threads can be just as expensive as buying clothes for a child, so it's much more budget friendly to make your own ferret or other small animal clothing.

Instructions

    Bandanna Ferret Vest

  1. 1

    Lay the bandanna down on a flat surface, and even out any wrinkles or folds. Iron if necessary.

  2. 2

    Fold the bandanna once from one corner to the opposite, making it look a bit like a wide triangle.

  3. 3

    Using your threaded needle, fold the longest tip of the triangle-shaped bandanna inward, creating a loop. Sew it into place. After you do this, slide the unhooked cat collar through the looped fabric.

  4. 4

    Sew the Velcro squares on the remaining two points, making sure to face the textured sides upward.

  5. 5

    Lay the vest on the ferret's back, with the folded end pointed to the tail. Fasten the Velcro-covered ends around the neck loosely, and then securely hook the collar around the torso of the ferret.

Tips and warnings

  • Using flexible and breathable materials like mesh is great for your ferret when outdoors.
  • Do not fasten the collar or the neck pieces too tightly. You must be able to insert two fingers into the collar and neck parts.
