It’s no secret that dog is man’s best friend. Sometimes our furry companions show us their love by leaving some not-so-special “treats” while out for a walk. It’s easy to forget to grab a plastic bag on the way out the door and, take it from me, it’s not cool when you do! I came up with this Crochet Dog Wallet so that I’d never be without a way to retrieve Rover’s precious gifts.
I made the wallet a little bit stretchy so that I could cram quite a few bags inside of it. This way I don’t have to remember to refill it every other day! The front opening is partially sewn shut on each side to keep the bags from bursting out.
I also added a small loop to one corner of my doggie wallet so I could clip it to the dog’s leash or my backpack. The loop could easily be lengthened to make a “doggie wristlet,” so you can keep your hands free on those long walks.
Ready to make a wallet of your own? Here is the Free PDF pattern for my Crochet Dog Wallet! You can also find this pattern on Ravelry! This pattern is for personal use only and may not be sold, reprinted, or copied in any way without my express permission. If you decide to sell something you make from one of my patterns, I ask that you give credit to me as the pattern designer. I also ask that you include a link back to the free pattern, so that others may have the opportunity to make the item themselves. Enjoy and happy crocheting!
UPDATE: After making this dog wallet I needed something else to hold the rest of our plastic shopping bags. I crocheted a bag eating monster to devour them all. Of course by the time he was finished, our bag collection was pretty much extinct (from all the wallet refills!). So he adapted to eating all kinds of household clutter instead! I’ve added the free PDF pattern here, but beware – they multiply!!
