I saw a 'pumpkin carving picture' of Jessie and Woody from Toy Story this year as I was trying to find an idea to carve a watermelon. I planted my first garden this year but didn't plant pumpkins so I decided to carve one of my watermelons. I carved Jessie from Toy Story which is also who I decided to dress up like.
I already had some cow print fabric which is what started the idea. I didn't want to spend a lot of money so I just used fabric I already had for everything. I borrowed some chaps from a friend to see how they are made. I made a pattern from those and cut up some black leather pants to make the top and the fringe of the chaps. I got a white button-up shirt, found some yellow fabric and cut out pieces to add as a collar and cuffs.
I embroidered some red western designs and sewed them on. I added a white ring on the back, for my pull tab she has on her back that makes her talk. I made a matching yellow and red hair ribbon to tie on to my braid. I wore jeans, my red belt with a buckle and some cow boy boots. I got red polar fleece and some card stock to make a hat, it was much harder to make a hat than I had imagined. I stitched around the edges with some white yarn and added a white band around the top. It was a lot of fun to make and wear. My favorite thing was walking into a party and little girls saying..."here comes Jessie".

Homemade Jessie and Woody Costumes from Toy Story 2
My daughter wanted to be Jessie from Toy Story 2 so it was only natural that my husband was going to be Woody.
For her costume, I used a pattern for a boy's Western shirt, but altered the yoke to match Jessie's. I made my own pattern for the cuffs and did some decorative stitching to mimic the embroidery. I took an old pair of her jeans that had a hole in the knee and fused the cow print over the top to look like the chaps. A friend of mine found the red hat at a dollar store, but I added the white ribbon and hole punched the rim and added white string. I also made the yarn wig.
My husband had most of his costume except the vest. I used the same cow print fabric and altered a vest pattern to make it shorter and smaller. The hat was purchased.
They won 1st prize in a family category costume contest at church!

Homemade Woody and Jesse from Toy Story Costumes
These are very easy Homemade Woody and Jesse from Toy Story Costumes. The beauty is in the details. We purchased the hats from Disney, but made everything else.
Woody – Jeans and cowboy boots, yellow shirt, vest sewn from cow fabric, red bandanna, sheriff badge.
Jesse – Jeans with cow fabric “chaps” sewn onto front. White blouse with yellow satin sewn onto shoulders and cuffs and red sequin trim. I made a long yarn braid and attached it to a stretchy headband so it hung down my back.
Both of us also had a “pull-ring” on our backs. We used a wooden ring from a craft store and a bit of yellow ribbon. We cut a slit in the back of Jesse’s shirt and Woody’s vest and pinned the ribbon to the inside, letting the ring hang down. This detail really added to the costume and got us a lot of laughs!
