Hi,  Both of my girls are Dora fans so they were so happy when I finished these.  unfortunately this is the best pic of them together.

For Dora I made her shirt and longer shorts(its cold here!!!), I found a toque (beanie for all you non canadians Tongue) and stitched the yarn to it so that she could have the huge dora head.

I made backpack and map about a month ago http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271170.msg3061191#msg3061191

Dora reading her map

I made boots from a fleece house coat.  I traced a pair of her jammies for the body, added some cream coloured flanel for the belly, I also made mits but she refused to wear them.  Her tail has a coat hanger in it and snaps to the bum so that she could go in her carseat in her costume. I made the hood by tracing one of her hoodies and added stuffed ears and boots hair. It snaps under the chin and I added long ties so that it could hold the tail up.   I like to call this picture "tragic monkey"

The boots were full footies but it was raining on halloween so I cut them open so that she wouldnt wreck it.

I had soo much fun making these costumes!!! I hope you enjoy them
thanks for looking Grin

So you, could spend the morning walkin with me, quite amazed. As I am unwashed and somewhat slightly dazed.

The Dora giant head look is awesome!  I'm still laughing from the "Tragic Monkey" title.  Excellent work, the backpack and everything look totally professional!
