I'm really not sure if this goes here or not, it is an oddball and it really doesn't fit anywhere else. Feel free to move it if I am terribly off.  Cheesy

I made this about 5 months ago my dog Nubby (he's a mini pincher) when I had a Mexican themed party  Grin this loverly set includes a vest and a sombrero
The materials I used
-6 pieces of brown felt
-scraps of red and yellow felt
-ribbon bits for the vest( to tie around his belly and hold it on) and brim of the hat
-toggle for his hat to adjust it to his head
He didn't seem to mind it and actually got excited when he saw me take it out  Cheesy

I only got one good picture of him in it.

Sadly I had to get my baby (Nubby) put down about two weeks ago and I am still mourning him so I can bring myself to even post pictures of the outfit all by its self it brings me to tears even looking at it.Talk about serious meltdown I had no idea how much that little dog meant to me until I literally watched him go away forever...I haven't cried like that since my grandparents passed away. Then to make it worse the vet asked me if I wanted a box to take him home in to bury him. I seriously could not talk because I was crying so hard, and that just made it to where I could barley breathe. Then when I am going to leave they say "We didn't charge you" What was I supposed to say "Thank you for euthinizing my dog at such a great price!" ? In all seriousness I am very well mannered and polite  wouldn't saying "thank you" in that situation be a bit morbid?  Anyway enough of my pitty-party!  I got the idea from a cheapo magazine that I found at my Dad's house when I was cleaning and instead of paying 20 dollars for one I ventured to do it myself, the most difficult part was sewing on yarn around the edges and then cutting it.
Again sorry for the rant!

I finally made a wist... It's pretty dweeby! http://www.wists.com/p1nkbunn13

Cute outfit. Sad story... Sorry about your loss.  Cry  Cry  Cry
When my first rabbit died I didn't handle it well. She saved my life. I owed her so much. My vet even sent me a sympathy card! I knew she needed someone her own species and size so I had gotten her a rabbit. The first one was never very nice to the second one but they bonded anyway. The second one and I comforted each other and looked for the first one... It's never easy losing a loved one. Regardless of how many legs they have. But my little friend was in pain and I couldn't let her suffer any longer. I'm sure the vet was used to people not knowing how to handle such a difficult decision and time.
Thanks for sharing and hope you are feeling better.  Smiley

Okay, I found this totally by accident, but wanted to say that the idea is awesome and I admire that you made him his own little outfit! I also want to say I'm so sorry for your loss.
