Doggie Dino Tank

Fashion Fido this no-sew costume from a shirt and felt. We used a child-size tank top, but you can use any T-shirt or a pet-specific one that fits your canine.


Resources: Wool felt, in Pea (#41), by Wollfilz Infant rib tank, in Kelly Green



  1. Step 1

    Print templates. Cut out spiky spine template. Using disappearing-ink pen, trace the spikes of the spine onto felt. Cut around the spikes, leaving them attached to the felt as shown.

  2. Step 2


    Cut through the slits in the slit template. Place it on the shirt, and trace lines through the slits. Snip out the slits on the shirt. Place the felt strip inside the shirt. Pull the spikes through the slits so they stand up.

    The scales were too small. I remade it drawing bigger scales, and it looks great. I would enlarge the pattern a bit.
