Nicely made, but definitely did not fit up to a 15" waist. We measured our yorkie twice the first one was a mistake on our part and we only measured 11", but the second time (yes we bought two pairs) we measured more accurately at a 13" waist and they still did not fit. We even measured one more time when we got them and they did not fit her 13" waist. She did offer for us to return them, but I wasn't able to get around to it, so I donated them to a local rescue who used them for their dogs.

Thank you for your feedback Tiffany. I take reviews very seriously and have researched the issue. We haven't had any other diaper orders (out of 54 sold so far) that have not fit the suggested size range (in this case 11-15"). I suggest double checking where you are measuring or ask a local sewist for a review of your girth and length measurements. I suspect your length may have been off making the diaper sit further back where the dog is larger. I am happy to see you found a local rescue to use them! I wish we could have done something to make you happy with this order. I made an exception and offered a refund. I never received a reply and was awaiting the return package. I wish you would have let me know if you were not satisfied with a refund; I would have looked at other options with you.

About

How can I help?

I am a former paralegal who decided to be a work from home business owner with this shop. When I saw the price of plain mass produced belly bands for my foster dogs, I knew I could make them cuter and better. I love to learn new things, so off I went to refine my sewing skills and research the best materials. After making a ton of belly bands for myself, I donated some to Recycled Pomeranians Dog Rescue Houston. Then I was getting orders for custom harnesses and pajamas from foster and adoptive doggie parents. Etsy was the next logical step and provides a nice way for people all over the world to buy my products. I have currently shipped orders to 9 countries and almost every US state! I'm looking at you Idaho and Wyoming, ha!

Because of this Etsy shop and your kind support, I have been able to donate $1,154.77 in products and cash to Recycled Pomeranians Houston, Wrapped in Love, and the Days for Girls organizations. I've driven over 4,000 miles. I gave up counting the hours I've donated as I frequently work events where my paycheck from the day goes to Recycled Pomeranians. In 2016 and 2017, I have worked 10 all day events. In 2017 I built the Recycled Pomeranians Website and ran the Facebook page. I've picked up dogs from shelters, bathed some very dirty dogs, found great deals on collars/leashes to donate, and countless other things that have helped rescue dogs. I can't thank you enough for your support!

My husband and I have fostered and re-homed 20 dogs with Recycled Pomerians: Walnut, Mozzie, Marty, Newton, Ricotta, HoHo, Diggle, Freedom, Tinsel, Pom Pom, Pilot, Patron, Sunshine, Huggs, Roux, Carston, Roby, Pumba, Sissy, and Mesa. If you are interested in adopting a Pomeranian please look up "Recycled Pomeranians Houston" on Facebook.

I also support other charitable organizations such as "Wrapped with Love" where I donate belly bands and dog toys to dog rescues all over the US. In January 2018, I attended a "Days for Girls" sew-a-thon where about 40 people worked on washable menstrual product kits that will be sent to impoverished girls in places like Africa. For my 41st birthday this year, I took about 40 hours and made 10 kits at home plus donated a lot of extra supplies to make even more at the next sew-a-thons in February and March. Each girl will gain back about 180 "days" of education that they would otherwise miss because of their period!

Thank you for supporting my work! If I can help you with anything, please let me know.

    Owner

    We have 4 full time pomeranians and have fostered another 20. Working from home allows me to donate a lot of time and resources to charitable causes such as Days for Girls and Recycled Pomeranians Dog Rescue. Thank you for supporting my work!

  • Max

    Security

    Max is the dog that started it all. He is a dachshund/pom mix and is 9 years old. This boy gets no better pleasure than keeping a lookout at the window in the sewing room. He lets you know if a delivery is coming or a kid is playing.

  • Revy

    Boss

    Revy is my little sweetheart. She's the only girl of the bunch and also my smallest model. She doesn't have a mean bone in her body but she does seem to run things around here. Revy is 4 years old.

  • Regis

    The Entertainer

    Regis keeps us laughing. He's my foster failure. I was suppose to just foster him but fell in love and adopted him. He has IMHA, an immune related disease that is now in remission!!! He's 7 years old.

  • Pilot

    Customer Service

    Pilot was a former foster dog of ours who was turned in to a shelter in Washington by his adopter then had to be flown back to us in Texas. He is now a senior at around 10 years old, so we adopted him. It was meant to be, he's been through enough.

Frequently asked questions

Can I return a belly band or diaper?

Because of the intimate nature (health/hygienic reasons), I can't accept returns on belly bands or diapers. If you have a problem, just let me know and we'll find a solution. I can often offer an extender piece, a coupon, an exchange, or other accommodation.

Are the belly bands absorbent? Do I need a liner?

My belly bands are minimally absorbent. They are meant to be used with a disposable panty liner or poise type pad for anything over minor dribbles. With an appropriate pad size they can handle it all! You can cut the pads in half or even thirds for an economical solution. I buy the longest ones I can find and cut them in thirds.

If you want a more eco friendly solution that doesn't require any liners, I can make an absorbent insert sewn directly into the band itself. Please contact me for pricing.

Care instructions

Belly Bands and Diapers: Close the hook and loop tape before washing to avoid the hooks attaching to other items or collecting threads in them. Machine wash in cool or warm water. Air dry for longest life. If you use the dryer, use the lowest setting possible. You can dry on high/medium, the bands just won't last quite as long. To remove urine odor, add regular vinegar to the rinse cycle. I also like the product OdoBan. I add both of these to the "softener" section of my washing machine. Do not use fabric softener or dryer sheets, they interfere with the absorbency of the fibers over time.

Do I have to measure my dog? Are your bands similar to other brands? Is your XS the same as another XS?

Please measure your dog. I know, I hate to do it too. They wiggle! Where is the darn tape measure!

Tada...here is a printable ruler:

**Make sure "fit to page" box is NOT checked**

My bands are uniquely sized. There are no standard sizes for dog clothing. Please know that measuring is the only way to be sure you will get a size that fits your dog. Some folks include more or less hook and loop tape which vastly changes sizing. Include your dog's girth measurement at checkout; I will double check to make sure you have ordered the proper size.

Do you have or can you get this particular fabric?

Send me a convo. I will try my best to find what you are looking for. I have a ton of fabric that just hasn't made it into the shop yet.
