He wants to be a green and orange puppy.
I found a bunch of ugly green and orange furry yarns on clearance at Michaels, so I have supplies, I just have no idea how to go about creating a dog costume for a five year old boy.
I thought maybe I'd make a simple knit hat and add some furry ears to it. Maybe use some felt to make the ears stick up a bit. But, what should I do for the body? I have a green t-shirt which matches the green yarn pretty well.
Any brainstorming ideas would be appreciated!
(Last year, he wanted to be a tree, and I spend hours gluing leaves onto a cape. He looked like a shrubbery, but he thought it was the coolest thing ever! Pressure's on this year!)
