Boy Dog Diapers

A friend of mine came to me asking for me to make her dog some diapers. Some WHAT?!?!? Yep, her dog has a little dribbly problem and she bought him some diapers but the fit wasn't great so she asked me to make him some custom diapers. Seeing as I've made wedding gowns in the past, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to round out my sewing experience. I used to say I've made everything from wedding gowns to home furnishings to kids clothes but now I can throw in "dog diapers" as well. Anyway, this is what boy dog diapers look like:

Please note the dark shadowy edges on the picture. 
That gives these a more classic feel.

And here's what they look like unfolded:

I used some scrap pieces of PUL I had left over from making diapers for human babies then the inside layer is a poly blend that I felt a maxi pad would stick to. I now know that the way these work is the owner sticks a pad on the inside then wraps the diaper up around the dog's torso, making sure to catch his bits as she wraps. If he dribbles a bit, the pad catches it.

Now, this looks like it is a rectangle but it actually bows out a bit which adds some extra room for the pad so that it doesn't smash the dog's bits. The edges are sewn with fold over elastic then I used super strength diaper hook-and-loop tape along the edges.

Naturally, I recruited my raccoon to model it for you:
