Santa Baby

Funny how I'm not doing a tree, or presents, or decorating my house this year for Christmas...but I AM dressing my dog.  Here is my first handmade Santa suit and I am so happy with how it turned out!


It's made of 90% upcycled materials.  One of my favorite things to do is revive something that's on its way to the dump.  


My mom found the red velvet material from a thrift store in Carmel, the black belt is from an old pair of work pants, the gold belt buckle is from a bag of random hardware from who knows where, and I used flannel plaid for the lining from my Upcycled Christmas Plaid Edition.


I take great pride in my upcycled fashions.  The possibilities are endless and you get stuff you just can't find in the craft stores!  Most importantly, Sebastian doesn't have to worry about running into another dog with his same outfit on.

I tried making a toy bone out of my school shirt yesterday and it wasn't so bad. Also... I have a tip for people that are going to make it at their home....
**TIP**
If you do not have cotton to stuff your toy bone with, just cut the rest of the shirt into small pieces and stuff it in.Most school shirts work best for the bone and stuffing because they are strong and non-stretchy!^^

THANK YOU FOR SPENDING YOUR PRECIOUS TIME ON READING MY COMMENT!~
