If your dog needs a sweater, JoyStar Handmade has you covered… literally, in the case of dogs. (She makes cat sweaters too!) Candace started making sweaters when she rescued a little chichi who had cancer. She needed a good home and some cozy sweaters for the cold Chicago winter. Candace named her Chihis Lengua Michalada de la Noche del Langostina. While she is no longer with Candace, sweaters are still be created to keep ‘lil pups warm.
Because pets come in many different sizes, Candace is always happy to accommodate custom size inquiries. The sweaters are available in many colors, yarn fiber and textures.
Candace is a Certified Veterinary Nurse. When she is not caring for your fur babies at work, she is making them soft and cozy sweaters.
