After months of "doggy says woof-woof"....there was only one thing Ben could be for Halloween.
I could amazon prime myself a doggy costume but I had an idea of how to make one myself so naturally I opt for arts and crafts. Hobby Lobby is right next door - for the win! - so I pack up Ben and after a quick breeze through one of our favorite stores I was able to fashion him a super cute Dalmatian Puppy Costume. Easy and almost no sewing.
Away we go with another how-to...this one you might actually use someday!
Acquire the goods. White sweatsuit with a hoodie, felt, pipe cleaners.
Draw imperfect circular shapes on the felt and cut them out. Place on suit. Use fabric glue to adhere.
The ears - the trickiest part but not difficult. Draw the ears larger on top smaller on bottom.....then use the pipe cleaners to shape. I did sew them on on the top, middle, and bottom. You could also try hot glue.
I cut slits in the hoodie and sewed them in. ADORABLE! Full disclosure I did amazon prime the face paint. I forgot to buy it at hobby lobby so Prime to the rescue!
We dressed him up Saturday and took him to a little fall festival.
Didn't. Say. Woof.Woof. Once.
He's onto the next and only wants to talk about how the car goes "Vroom".
So....let's roll with it.
Happy Halloween from the dog who says Vroom Vroom!

That kid is so adorable! You made a really nice costume for Ben. I don’t have any patience to do something like that but because of those adorable pictures, I might be able to make an effort to make one of this! It’s so nice of you to share how you made this costume. I hope the end product will be as good as yours!
