Tis the season for costumes

It'll be hard to top the Yoda costume, but we're going to give it a try. There weren't a lot of new costumes online, so I've decided to make Shelby's costume this year. The first piece of the costume was a mask, and it's been a while since I've shared a project on the blog, so I thought I'd post it.

Pattern
Download the PDF for printing.
This will make a mask that reveals the eyes, muzzle, and ears (optional). It will probably need adjustments depending on the size of the pug. It's really important to make sure the eye holes are large enough so that those bulging eyes don't get scratched...and oh yes...your pug will hate it.

Here's how to take the muzzle measurement.

As for Shelby's costume, it's a suprise, but I'll unveil it on Halloween. (And for my friends who already know....shhhhhhh :)

And your pug will hate it! Ha! We have a cape for Nibbles, and we bought one of those headbands with devil horns that I'm going to somehow attach to his collar. I can't wait to see pics!
