Easy Loofah Dog Costume

Craft Materials

Before starting this project, you’ll need the following materials:

Decorative Mesh, Needle, Thread, Doggie Shirt or Youth Size Shirt, Rope Leash

I’m so excited to share with you a project that I worked on with All You Magazine! They contacted me about creating a dog costume for their magazine. I worked on a couple costume ideas, and they picked the loofah!!

I didn’t need to take any step by step pictures for them, so I don’t have any. Sorry.  But I did write the steps out, but if you have any questions please let me know!!

Also a BIG thanks to FloraCraft for sending me the decorative mesh that I used to make this costume!! It worked perfect and looks just like a giant loofah.

I love the idea of creating a fun handmade Halloween costume for my dog.  I wanted to make something easy, but also make it comfortable for my dog to wear.  This year, I decided to make her a giant loofah. I had this costume done in no time, and it’s so easy to put it on and take it off her.

Step 1 – Grab your shirt and mesh. Then (starting from the back of the neck), bunch up the mesh and hand sew into place.

Step 2 – Work your way around the front of the neck, but make sure to keep a nice full look when bunching up your mesh. Then, sew into place.

Step 3 – Next, start around the dog’s waist with your mesh (still keeping the nice a full look when bunching up). Once you’ve covered the shirt, cut off any excess fabric.

Step 4 – Pair it with a matching rope leash and your dog’s ready to show off it’s new loofah costume.

Here are some behind the scene pictures of the photo shoot.  My Sadie bear did a great job, she’s pretty professional. No DIVA here!! But she does want me to contact some dog food companies for a new gig.

I also did a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle dog costume that I will be sharing with you as well.

This was such an exciting opportunity to work with All You Magazine. A big thank you to them for contacting me. I hope I get the opportunity to work with them again!
