Easy, Cheap Snuggle Bear Costume For Pets
This is my Chihuahua, Syri, dressed up as the Snuggles fabric softener bear. This easy, cheap Snuggle Bear costume was really easy and cheap to make. First, I bought 1/4 yard of off-white fuzzy material at a fabric store. I cut a rectangle for the body, a hood, and ears then hand sewed it all together. To make the bear tail, I cut a circle out of the fabric, hand stitched along the edge, put a small amount of fiber fill in the middle, then pulled the thread tight and tied off. I used fabric glue to attach the tail puff to the bottom of the costume. I glued tan felt to the ears to look like the inside of the ear. This also helped the ears stand up. Finally, I cut circles out for front leg holes.
With the costume finished, I just sat her in a white laundry basket with blue towels and an empty Snuggles bottle. Syri was a hit at my preschool class’ Halloween party in her super cute costume!
