How To Make A Thunder Shirt


Are you looking to make a thunder shirt for your pet? Thunder shirts are great for calming and soothing your pet during storms, car rides, or any other stressful situation. Making one at home is a great, inexpensive way to help your pet stay calm. Read on to learn how to make your own thunder shirt.

To make a thunder shirt, you will need a piece of stretchy fabric, scissors, a sewing machine, and thread. You can also use fabric glue if you don’t have a sewing machine.

First, measure your pet to determine how much fabric you will need. Measure the length from the neck to the tail and the girth around the chest. Add an extra four inches to the length and two inches to the girth to allow for wiggle room and movement.

Cut two pieces of fabric to the desired measurements and place them right sides together. Pin the pieces together and sew around the edges, leaving one side open. Turn the fabric right side out and press it flat.

Next, fold the bottom of the fabric up to the desired length. This will create a pocket that you can use to insert elastic and adjust the fit. Cut two pieces of elastic one to two inches shorter than the length of the pocket. Sew the elastic into the pocket, stretching it slightly as you sew.

Finish the shirt by sewing a fastener to the open side. A snap or Velcro is the easiest to put on and take off. You can also use buttons or a zipper. Lastly, trim the excess fabric around the edges and your thunder shirt is complete!

Making a thunder shirt can be a fun and rewarding project. It’s also a great way to save money while providing your pet with the comfort they need. With the right supplies, you can make your own thunder shirt in no time.
