Last-minute pet costume

In the past, I've been one of those people who spent $15 on a Target costume for my cat. Why? Not really sure, but when you're in the aisle, everything just seems so cute.

Mr. Friedrich von Stauffenpuss grew out of the sharky costume I bought him a few years ago.


And last night as I was finishing my costume (another post to come tonight), this costume just started taking shape.


What you need:
Men's T-shirt
Cat or dog (You wouldn't necessarily need one these, but then this project would be kinda pointless)


1. Cut a sleeve off one side. Friedrich loves crafternoons.


2. Flatten the sleeve so what would normally be the top of the arm, is the back, where you use a sharpie to create a spooky creature. I drew a jack-o-lantern face. If you have a green shirt, try a witch or Frankenstein. A plain ol' white Tee? Hello, ghosty.


3. Cut arm holes. These turned out to be not quite big enough, so it may require a few dress rehearsals to get it right.


4. Friedrich loved crafternoon until he realized it was a costume for him. He's not modeling the best, but I promise he looked adorable.

What is your pet going as this year?
