For Halloween I decided to make one of our dogs into a sock monkey. He was a really big hit with the kids while handing out candy.



Made entirely out of a pair of wool socks, Odie loves the costume (he generally wears a hat on winter walks so he is use to them). He will wear it for hours with no problem, even sleep in it. I am going to make similar sweaters for him to wear all winter.

i LOVEELOVELOVE the fact that you entered the costume you made your dog! i used to be iffy on pets wearing clothes...but after making a friend who has a tiny poodle thing, i realized that some dogs would absolutely freeze without a "sweater" or "dress." her dog even prefers to wear clothes!

A+!

Thanks for all the positive feedback!

I also was unsure of dog clothing until my husband and I adopted Odie (and his 'brother' Brinkley, they were surrendered after their owners death). They were 10+ years old when we adopted them, and perpetually cold. The first time I held up a dog shirt Odie and Brinkley knew exactly what to do. Since they wear shirts year long, tank tops in the summer and sweaters in the winter!
