Introduction

This costume idea comes from our friends at Primary.com. Kids clothes, a hoodie, or a matching pair of green pajamas all work as the base for this outfit — simply make a matching tail and pair of ears. When shopping for crafting supplies, check out your local dime store: they will have most items on the list of materials.

steps

  1. Make ears: Cut big teardrop shaped ears from green felt. Pinch the wider curved part of the ear together and glue to give the ear some more shape. Attach to the hood with safety pins.

  2. Make eyes and snout: Make the eyes with black felt circles and attach to the hood with fabric tape. Cut an oval for a snout from green felt and cut smaller slits for the nostrils from black felt. Fabric tape together and attach to the center front edge of the hood.

  3. Make eggs: Cut two wavy white blobs for the egg whites, and two circles for the egg yolks. Attach the green yolks to the egg whites and stick to the front belly of the hoodie.

  4. Make tail: Cut a circle of green felt and spiral cut it to the middle. Use a pipecleaner to give it spring. Attach to the back base of the hoodie with fabric tape.
