Yorkshire terrier / Yorkie size male dog diaper wrap belly band sewing pattern
If you have a male dog, in the small toy breed size, Yorkshire terrier size, with a 9" to 11" waist, and he pees all over the place, or is old, can't wait to go, and having accidents, then this male dog diaper wrap belly band sewing pattern is for you!
My boyfriend's mother had me make them for her pugs, and I wish I knew about them when my dog was alive, because I would've made them for him. Then, a customer asked me to make them for her Yorkshire terrier. So far, I have patterns for the Yorkshire terrier size, and for the pug size or large toy breed, because ...those are the breeds that I've worked with, to customize patterns for. lol ...so far. And, my Yorkie customer hasn't provided photos of her fur baby wearing the belly band, even though I've asked several times, however I do have a pdf pattern download for people to make them for their Yorkies.
The Yorkie size belly band diaper wrap is for a dog with a 9" to 11" waist, and it measures 13 1/4" wide by 3 3/4" long when finished, and only requires 1/4 yard or meter of fabric, 2"x 3" Velcro / hook & loop, and optional stretch nylon pocket, or buy 1/4 yard or meter of microfiber terrycloth, the kind that hold up to several times its weight in liquid, and have that as the entire inner lining for the belly band. Or, you can buy several microfiber terrycloth washcloths or bar mops that have the microfiber, and sew them together, so that the inner lining before sewing is 14 1/2" x 4 1/2". The outer fabric can be snuggle cotton flannel, or denim weight, but some dogs that size want something lightweight, so maybe keep with the flannel or try ripstop nylon for the outer fabric.
In this download you will receive a pattern, 1 sheet for 2 part panel to tape together, and connect with tape on both sides, and total of 4 to print. You can even hole punch around the outer edges to place the pins, heads pointing inward, to hold the pattern in place. On the printables, I have the areas marked for the Velcro sew on hook and loop closure, where to place the optional stretch nylon pocket, centered.
You do have the option of using microfiber terrycloth for the whole, entire inner lining, if you wish, where you don't need the stretch nylon pocket, used to hold a maxi pad or cut up diaper cloth in place.
