Make It : Pet Costumes

Posted by

My boyfriend and I recently welcomed Addy, an 8-week-old golden doodle puppy into our lives. With Halloween just a week away, I had to make her a costume! I love Steph’s clever Dino Tank from her pet costumes story in this month’s issue of Living, so I made one for Addy in pink and red.

I printed Steph's spine template and used felt I had at home. The tank top was from the baby section at American Apparel!

A few snips with scissors based on another template from the story, and the tank is finished!

We’ve also been saying how much she looks like a little lion, so I thought I’d transform one of her small collars into a furry mane. Both were easy to make and comfortable for Addy to wear.

I simply embellished one of her collars by tying yarn all the way around.

This way, we could reuse her collar after Halloween.

  • I love these costumes. My little dog would feel so special if she had one. I might have to get busy and make one.
