I used one pattern to make both costumes.  My son's puppy dog costume was much harder because the material was so thick.  I had trouble getting the spots to stay on. The combined fabric was just too thick for my machine. I ended up using fabric glue and then hand stitching to tack down the edges of the spots.

For the ears, the pattern called for a hood but I knew my kids wouldn't wear hoods.  I bought premade cat-ear headbands from Michael's. I made my own ears, then used velcro to secure them on the headbands. They can take the costume ears off and still use the original headbands.

I'm really proud of myself! This is only my third sewing project, not counting the endless cloth diaper wipes I've made.

The puppy dog ears didn't really turn out very well and my son was very distressed by them. He said, "Momma. I just cannot wear 'dese ears all around." LOL

Too cute!

The look on your son's face in the head shot is cracking me up!
