Pin Cushion Costume

Peanut the Pin Cushion with a Thimble Hat!

Costume type:  Costumes for Pets
Category:Halloween Costumes

This homemade costume for pets entered our 2012 Halloween Costume Contest.

A word from Amanda, the 'Pin Cushion' costume creator:

Peanut is a 7 year old chihuahua who loves being the center of attention. Her mom is always in search of new and fun costume ideas. This year she decided to be something unique and this is what her mom came up with. A little bit of red fabric, some batting, green yarn as the trim and kabob skewers with styrofoam balls is all that it took to create this masterpiece. And of course Peanut had to accessorize like all girls do so she added a spray painted Nyquil dosage cup for a thimble hat look.

How did you get the pin cushion to not fall to the side when the dog walks. My daughter is making this for our dog for our 4H state dog show costume class. We love it! Such a great idea, but are having problems with it falling to the side. We are using elastic bands instead of it sewed to a shirt type thing. Maybe we made it to big or we need to sew it to a vest/dog shirt that fits tight.
