Eeyore Costume

Time: 2 hours

Effort: Some sewing

Materials:

  • Blue-gray sweatshirt or jacket with hood
  • Blue-gray sweatpants
  • Blue dye
  • Blue-gray felt
  • Black fur
  • Velcro
  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Pink ribbon
  • Needle and thread
  • Scissors
  • Pink felt (optional)
  • Button (optional)

Instructions: If you can't find a blue-gray sweatshirt, you can dye the sweatpants and shirt to make them the same grayish-blue as Eeyore.

Sew a small square of Velcro to the seat of the pants (this is where the tail will go). Cut out two ears from the blue-gray felt. Cut out the inner ear in the pink felt, smaller than the blue, and hot glue it on.

For the tail, cut a strip of the blue-gray felt and sew or hot-glue the Velcro to one end. Cut out a small bit of black fur and glue or sew that to the other end of the tail. Then tie the pink ribbon around it. You can glue or sew a button to the top of the tail as well.

Sew a long strip of the black fur to the hood of the sweatshirt for the mane. Sew the ears to the sides of the hood, at the height of the top of your child's ears.
