Bonjour, sweet Frenchman! Photo: Woman's Day
With Halloween coming up faster than I've realized, I'm researching a few easy DIY costumes for my two pups. Yes, dogs are allowed to embark (pun intended!) on holiday festivities, as well. Luckily, I've spotted these darling costumes from Woman's Day
, complete with a Frenchman get-up that's sure to make the ladies go ga-ga!
To make the Frenchman's costume (which works best with small dogs), you need just a few materials:
- 11/2 feet. blue-and-white-striped material
- Piece of black felt 10 inch square
- Iron-on stiffening 10 inch square
- 2 feet red fabric
- 11/2 feet white bias binding
- 10 inch black bias binding
- White Velcro fastening
Easy enough, right? Of course, there's a free pattern download right here
to make it even easier. Hurray to Woman's Day for giving our furry friends a cute, sassy and simple Halloween!
I can't wait to Trick-or-Treat with my two pups, although I'll admit -- they may be fighting over which one gets to be the chef...
