DIY – How to Make a Dog Carrier Pack or Purse

The following tutorial will show you how to quickly make a safe dog purse out of an old tote bag.

Step 1 – Get Basic Supplies

You’ll need the following items:

  • Old (or new) tote bag
  • Fabric Glue
  • Seam Ripper
  • Needle and Thread
  • Pins
  • Elastic
  • Snaps
  • Bolt Snap
  • Key Ring

Step 2 – Build a space for your dog’s head

  • Rip one side. Use the seam ripper to open up 4 – 5 inches of seam from the top of one side of the tote
  • Use the needle and thread to reinforce the bottom of the ripped seam
  • Fold the two corners in and use the pins to hold them in place
  • Iron these corners
  • Remove the pins, open the corners, and apply fabric glue along the edges and to the center
  • Place a heavy object to hold the flaps down and allow the glue to set

Step 3 – Build a Mini Leash and Attach inside the Bag

Cut 10-12 inches of elastic, thread one end through the bolt snap and the other end through the key ring. Use the needle and thread to sew the folded pieces together. You should have an 8 to 10 inch length of elastic with the bolt snap sewed on one end and the key ring sewed on the other.

Sew the key ring on the inside of the tote just below the ripped seam. You’ll clip the bolt snap to your dogs harness to keep them secure.

Step 4 – Sew snaps along the top edge of the bag near the middle.

This is to snap the bag and keep it shut, also keeping your dog secure.

Step 5 – Add a small blanket or padding to the bottom of the bag

This is to keep them warm and secure.

Final Step – Add your dog!

Use the bolt snap to clip on to their harness. Then use the snaps to close the top of the bag.

You’re ready to roll!
