But I'm not sure how to get the fun fur on the wire so that it looks right. I want it tight around the top of the ears, and then sort of folded over in the front... I think I'll try sewing around the wire like I would for making wings, and hope it works! The I get to add more fake hair for the mane.
that outfit is so cute! I've made a lot of stuffed animals before, and the ears can probably be done with 2 pieces of fur cut in the shape of the ear sewn right sides together. A little trick to get the ear as pointy as you can? Place an extra piece of thread between the two halves at the point ( one end sandwiched in between, the other end sticking out) stitch over the thread, the fold th thread back to the inside so that when you finish stitching you have a little tail of thread to pull the ear out nice and pointy. If I'm not explaining this right, maybe there is a tute out there on how to get the points on a shirt collar pointy. You would want to use double thread on the tail for fake fur so it doesnt break. If you want them really crisp, you may have to go with a lower pile fake fur or velvet. And don't forget to pick the pile out of the seam to make it flawless!
Now I want to be a pink pony, but the motley crue costumes are coming along...
If only I could get my boyfriend to agree to a picture in the leopard spandex pants I made him. I guess we will have to wait till he's drunk on Halloween!
PS> Cigarettesandvalentines, you need to start looking into some local costume contests and make some $$$ this halloween with that costume! awesome!
