It's a glorious fall day and Halloween is just around the corner, so have you gotten your costume ready yet? Well, neither have I, but I did manage to get Ella's put together a while back. A few weeks ago, I headed to my parents' house to do a little Halloween crafting. My mom and I wanted to make something simple and fun for Ella to wear on Halloween, so we decided on her favorite animal at the moment: a puppy. And it really was a simple project, with no sewing involved. Check out it out below and make your little kiddo one tonight, it's cheaper than buying a costume, seriously!
|Begin the project by purchasing a sweat suit. I found this gray outfit at Walmart for around $10.
|Gather some supplies: felt and tacky glue (yep, that's it!)
|Here's the magical glue, always keep it around, it's pretty great stuff!
|Now begin creating some spots. Mom and I tried to go as "life like" as possible. (i.e. not so round)
|Now the puppy is starting to come to life, but what's a puppy without some big, floppy ears?
|Big floppy ears...
|Mom pinned them so they would lay nicely on the top of the hood.
|Pinned and ready to stitch. Whoops, I lied, there is a bit of sewing, but you could glue it.
