Make your small dog a dog sweater out of an old sweatshirt in five minutes!
My dogs got furcuts recently and are constantly shivering because I keep my thermostat set to Dreary London Winter (my fave). I have a few cute dog sweaters that I crocheted, but I wanted something that I cared less about in case their outfits got ruined when they romp outside in the snow and yuck. Inspired by Maria Von Trapp, Scarlett O'Hara, and Carol Burnett, I left the window curtains alone and instead looked in my husband's closet. I found a grubby XL Old Navy sweatshirt that he never wears because it is too huge and makes him look like he has given up on life. I cut the sweatshirt up a bit and voila! two dog shirts!

    And you're done! Without any sewing! Unless the raw edges make your OCD tic flare up, in which case, go ahead and stitch the hem. I don't want you to have an episode.
