Sew It Up for Halloween

Flower costume. See Below.

Admit it—you’ve tried your sunglasses on your dog at least once, or maybe even tied a scarf around his head. With Halloween on its way, it’s the perfect time to release your inner fashionista and really dress up the pup. Break out the measuring tape, pinking shears and pins and kick it up to the next level. Commercial patternmakers are ready to help —stop by your local fabric store or go online for some cuter-than-cute ideas.

And for a cornucopia of links to all sorts of patterns—costumes, beds, coats and more—visit Sweet Lucy’s.
