A holiday isn't a holiday without costumes... for the dogs, I say.

Betty tolerates and sometimes even enjoys costumes and outfits, so hers are more elaborate.  We're so lucky to have our own little leprechaun even if she won't show us to her pot of gold.



I added a yarn beard to the elastic strap of a dollar store leprechaun hat and made a little vest using the same basic pattern as my Star Trek dog vest (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=402346.0#axzz2N3igiWvy).



Instead of hook and loop closures, I used some brass colored buttons from my stash and scrap elastic to make frog-style closures. I for got to adjust the pattern for this difference so it doesn't fit quite as nicely as the Star Trek Dog Vest.   Undecided  I used the ankle buckles from her Thanksgiving Pilgrim costume (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=417134.0#axzz2N3igiWvy) to give the costume that finishing touch.




Delia is our tomboy and doesn't like all that "fancy dress-up crap, mama."  But, I will not leave her un-costumed, so she gets collar-based outfits at least.  Hers is just a Collar Cozy with a sparkly netting bow attached by a loop, all in green, of course. The netting was all that was left from these tutus the girls wore last spring: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=407268.0#axzz2N3igiWvy .



The whole kit was made from leftovers, scraps and remnants bought on speculation.  YEY for stash busting!

I knew that had to be one of your pooches when I saw the thumbnail. They look so festive! Here's hoping Betty caves and leads you to the treasure!  Cheesy

Bless her little dog heart, I think she's just going to lead me to bone or antler out in the forest.  At least I can make something with them, though!

Who'da thunk a lady with such lush chin hairs would be so adorable?

I love all of Betty's costumes but this is one of my favorites Smiley. She is such a trooper.
