The Pet Carrier Sweatshirt or I call the “Pet Sweat” is a convenient easy way to carry a pet in a big pocket. A pocket that is made with cozy and comfortable material as sweatshirt material.

Description Process Step By Step How to Make the Pet Carrier Sweatshirt:

The small dash lines are stitches to be sewed to make the Pet Sweat.

Step 1. Lay sweatshirt down on a table. 3 inches up from the under-arm, lay a piece of Canvas fabric called duck cloth fabric, approximately 12 inches wide and 17 inches long on the sweatshirt front ant than sew the duct cloth on all four sides to sweatshirt front.

Step 2. Face the sweatshirt material to show the inside the sweatshirt pocket.

Lay that piece of sweatshirt material on top of the duck cloth, this piece of sweatshirt material is the same size as the duct cloth previous fabric you sewed to the sweatshirt, approximately 12 inches wide and 17 inches long, and 3 inches up from the under-arm to the length of the sweatshirt bottom sewed. Sew sweatshirt fabric over duct cloth fabric.

Step 3 Take another piece of sweatshirt material the same size and lay it on the sweatshirt material with the front sweatshirt fabric facing the sweatshirt. This will Create the pocket with both the same color of sweatshirt.

Step 4 Sew this sweatshirt material on the top and bottom to the sweatshirt.

Now you will complete the Pet Sweat Carrier “Pet Sweat” by sewing the sweatshirt material to the top of the sweatshirt.

Step 5 Sew the top of the sweatshirt material to the sweatshirt fabric that will be on the front of the sweatshirt. Possible the same color of the sweatshirt. Now sew with the hem tucked inside so no one will see the attached sweatshirt material sewed.

Step 6 Add duck cloth under the top sweatshirt piece, sandwich duck cloth in and sew to into sweatshirt. This process will allow duck cloth to be in front and back of the Pet Sweat for support for the pet.

Step 7 Sew sides of sweatshirt to the sweatshirt itself with a tucked in hem.

Step 8 Sew bottom of front sweatshirt across the sweatshirt. It is preferred to sew into the sweatshirt already put seam to make a professional look. Sew twice for the safety of the pet.

As a result,

the sweatshirt fabric will lay better.
