Lets get spookey! There are plenty more flashbacks on projects that I have done, but with the upcoming holiday quickly approaching, I would like to post some of my past and present projects for Halloween.
My next three blog posts will be of some costumes I've made in the past for......my dog :)
Raja is our now 6 year old 2lb 7oz Chihuahua. One of my fur babies, and of course the smallest of all my babies!
Halloween 2005 was our first Halloween with Raja and I decided she needed a costume to greet kids at the door! So I made Raja a bat! As you can see this was not too far fetched as she already looked like one!
Not only did the idea of making Raja a bat for Halloween come easy due to her natural ability to look like a bat but the costume was as easy to make as they come. Raja wore a harness to attach her leash to so I cut out 2 identical pairs of bat wings from black felt. I covered one side of one of the pairs of bat wings with fabric glue, gently laid the other pair on top. The glue and double layer provided the stiffness needed to keep the bat wings standing up. I also took a silver sharpy that I already had to draw bone lines to provide a little more depth. I simply placed the wings between Raja's harness and her back so we could still attach her leash when taking her out side to go to the bathroom. That was it! She did the rest!
If you like what you see here come back Friday and Monday to see the next two costumes I made for Mrs. Raja. Which include a Spider and a Skunk!
Inspired by Raja
