This DIY Comfy fleece-lined Dog Carrier PDF Pattern and instruction file is available as an instant download. The dog purse is big enough to accommodate up to a 10 lb. dog. Inside dimensions are 8" x 10” and it features a fluffy removable pillow and an attached leash.


The straps are wide and fleece-lined for your comfort.

Two exterior pockets can be customized to carry anything you wish from your cell phone to a collapsible water bowl or poop bags.

Computer generated pattern pieces and step-by-step instructions with over 50 photographs will make this project accessible even for a novice sewer. I hold your hand the entire way making sure your project comes out looking professional.

I designed this carrier because my 5 lb. Terrier Lucy likes to be carried around and will scratch on my legs until I pick her up. I do a lot of my work carrying her around in one of these bags. She loves it and snuggles in as soon as I put her in it, going to sleep and very happy to be toted around the house all day. I love the wide straps because even 5 lbs. is a lot to carry around all day!

There are so many fabrics that will work well with this carrier -- I have made it with denim, duck cloth, and micro suede. Fleece options for the lining are huge with so many cute prints available. It's easy to find a coordinating quilting cotton for the trim as well. Designing it is the most fun ever! I keep seeing new prints and patterns I want to experiment with!

I have given you tips and tricks to make the process easier gleaned from my 30+ years of sewing everything from custom draperies to Halloween costumes. I am an experienced bag maker and once sold custom-made purses in my retail store in Arizona.

I include my email address in the pattern so you can ask if you have any questions while making it.

Happy Sewing!

I found the instructions a bit hard to follow because the pictures are from two different bags. However, the result was well worth powering through and my little dog loves his bag!

Great pattern. I skipped the piping (she tells you how to do that). There were a few times I had to really study the directions and pictures, but it worked out great. Seller was very helpful and super quick to answer questions. Pupster resisted getting in for just a minute and then instantly settled once I stood up. Now she is sleeping in the bag on my lap, snoring away. I made the pattern slightly bigger to accommodate my 12 pound girl.

Great pattern! Instructions were easy to follow. I love that it included an inner safety leash and a removable cushion. Bonus! Hugo loves it!
