The Christmas Card

October 23, 2015

IMGP3129[1]The thing is, I like to dress my dogs up in costumes and take pictures of them. I just do. So the yearly Christmas card is a pretty big deal for me. This year I wanted to do a Grinch theme. I decided Scout would be the Grinch (she can be a little cranky) and Louise could be Max, the hound. I used a Jalie pattern for Scout’s green hoodie–I’m sure this no surpise because I use Jalie for everything. I made size M of Jalie 3245 (the Raglan Tee) and added a hood. I then cut the center front open and added buttons and button holes for easy dressing. I then added some green boa on the sleeves and hood to make Scout look even furrier. I glued felt eyes and eyebrows on the hood.

So I took a red fleece remnant and made a little Santa jacket. Then I found a belt and cinched it around Scout’s waist. She really is a trooper!

Can you tell she’s not super excited about the Christmas card? Here she is in action. She’s after the dog treats that I laid on top of the grill.

Louise just needed an antler for her head. I used fleece for this too with some wire inserted to make it bendable. I used elastic covered with red fleece to keep the thing on her head.

Louise was not loving the antler.
