PETS: Beanie Baby Dog

If you did not know what a Beanie Baby was in 1997, I’m pretty sure you lived under a rock! They were everywhere, and for $5 you could buy one, hope it would make the retired list, and make millions!  Well, that last part isn’t entirely true, but it sure was fun to dream. Does anyone remember the purple Princess Diana bear? The Beanie Baby dog costume from Brit + Co wins best dog costume in my book, and you have to love that it’s as easy as printing out the free printable and trying it to Spot’s collar.

DOGS: DIY Dog pinata costume

Mindy turned her pooch into the perfect pinata! And she made the whole things from scratch. Here’s how:

Mindy said, “I sewed the body with felt and interfacing and then cut out crepe paper streamers and glued them to the body. Then I made a head out of felt and cardboard. The head is strapped to his body with Velcro. There is also a little strap attached to the head so that I can help hold up the head, but it also acts as a string to hang him up as though he is a real pinata!”
