Countdown to Halloween – DIY Bow Tie (…yes there is still time to make this!)

Amigo Halloween

Amigo the Dandy

 

OH MY GOSH!  Look what I made Amigo!

The extended family is coming over to our house for Halloween this year.  I’ll be cleaning/cooking/costuming my own kiddo, so I wasn’t sure I wanted to tackle dog costumes as well!  Still, I think the dogs should look festive for the holiday.

Buffy has a skeleton dog shirt that she will be debuting this year (a Target SUPER markdown from last Halloween)…but Amigo didn’t have anything to wear to the party.  Hence the brand new, handmade bow tie!

As someone who cannot use a needle and thread to save her life, I can honestly say this was a super easy project.  Instead of taking step by step pictures as I went for the blog (honestly – this would have been quite embarrassing) I am going to tell you to read instructions on BarkPost here or check out this video on YouTube.  While I didn’t follow either one to the letter (I didn’t use an iron or a hot glue gun), these gave me a good idea of what I needed to do.  While I initially measured (or cut?  or read the tape measure?  Have I mentioned how bad I am at sewing???) wrong…once I recut the pieces, it was smooth sailing.

I think this is an absolutely adorable way to get Amigo in on the Halloween fun.  He has been wearing it around…and doesn’t seem to mind it at all.  I can’t wait to see what our party guests say about our dapper little man!
