As the designer of this free pattern says – every dog needs a bit of encouragement on a long walk, and this bone-shaped mini carrier bag allows you to bring along a few treats.
To help it stay and keep clean the bag is lined with vinyl. It is also big enough that you can pop in a few poop bags to tidy up after Rover has done his business. Once you have made one all you need to do is to hook it to your belt, your pack, Rover’s collar or lead, and you’re good to go.
The designer Linda Turner Griepentrog worked with Yarnspirations to bring us all this free pattern and tutorial. It’s an easy project to work on and is therefore great for a confident beginner sewer.
This could be a nice gift idea or stocking stuffer to sew for a friend who has a dog, or even make a sew to sell project which is great for using up scraps.
