I wanted to dress my dog up for Halloween and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money. I bought cheap tees at a craft store and started cutting. I knew he didn’t like the sleeves so I decided to make a cape. I measured him, and used the collar of the t-shirt as the collar of the costume. The body of the t-shirt was the body of the costume and the remaining parts of the sleeves wrapped around him to secure the costume.
I hot glued some Velcro straps on to keep the costume in place. Then I glued on some paint swatches (free) and used a fabric marker to write the word ‘Fifty’. This costume was so easy to make and took less than 30 minutes. I made a version for me too, with a paint swatch necklace. He loves his costume so much and his tail starts wagging when I put it on. He gets lots of laughs and loves the attention.
