1  Halloween / Halloween Costumes / Kentucky Derby on: November 08, 2011 01:24:22 PM

My family has always joked that my big dog is a horse, so when I had my son, of course they joked that he will ride her.  I was inspired by that this Halloween and created a family costume theme that included our dog as a horse.  
  • For the Jockey: I crocheted the jockey helmet and threaded the straps of a pair of sun goggles between the stitches. For his boots, I just pulled black socks up over the bottoms of his pant legs.
  • For the Bookie: I created his vest from an old tee shirt and some buttons I had laying around.  The betting slips in his pocket are old receipts that I sewed to the front of the shirt.
  • For the Horse: I used some light brown fleece to make a saddle that attached to her harness.
  • For the spectator: I added a bunch of fake flowers and leaves to a large sun hat.
