I always try to make costumes that fit the dog's personality and looks, and Vinny's long legs just scream Chia Pet. I used terra cotta colored felt and made "pants" for his front and back legs - it takes about 14 people to get them on him, but once they're on, he's very comfortable and can do everything he does with his pants off! I started with a big circle of the same felt for the shell of the chia and just kept taking darts in it until it was the perfect shape and fit him like a glove. Then I got out the hot glue gun and started gluing the green stuff which was a plastic boxwood garland I took apart - it ended up taking 3 of them to cover the shell. He was very cooperative for his photo shoot and stood still and smiled. Thank you!Make a Chia Pet costume for your dog to wear on Halloween! Measure your dog and cut out a piece of fabric in a rectangle shape with bib-style flaps to reach around the front of your dog. Sew plastic foliage mats to the outside of the fabric. Cut pieces of orange fabric for the pants, sew the edges of the fabrics shut to make a cone-shaped tube, cut strips of fabric for straps to cross over your dog’s back and sew the end of each strap to each set of pant legs. Cut a strip of fabric, sew the fabric across the tops of the pant straps, and sew ties to the bib flaps and either side of the belly of the Chia Pet coat.
