Special DIY Corner:
Special occasions like Halloween or your birthday party are the perfect time to create unforgettable memories with your pets. Making some fun unicorn costume for them and taking pictures to save in your album is a great idea!
This costume stands out with its rock star style. Your pet might or might not love it, but hey, look at how ridiculously adorable she/he looks in this unique outfit. What’s more awesome is you can make it yourself with just a few simple steps. Let’s have a look at our below tutorial!
The first step is always preparing necessary materials. What you need before making beautiful costumes for your pet includes: white fabric, iridescent plastic fabric, pipe cleaners of different colors, kraft paper, wadding and velcro, and other tools like thread, scissors, tape measure etc.. For white fabric, you might need around 1 yard, while ½ yards of iridescent fabric is enough.
b. Making patterns:
Time to get your hands on the material and start the real work! The first step is making the costume pattern. Draw and cut the paper with a shape similar to the below image. They need to fit your dog. Therefore, before drawing, wrap the paper around your dog and estimate the size.
You can also fold the paper in half to cut to make sure both sides are identical. Put it on your dog again and make the adjustment if necessary.
Pattern 1 is for the hood while pattern 2 is for the torso. In order to make the hood, cut 2 pieces of the white fabric in the shape of pattern 1, sew them together to create a hood that fits your dog’s head. Do the same with pattern 2 for the torso. Test the parts on your dog first to make sure they fit well. Then sew torso and hood together. The final product would look like this:
c. Making unicorn hair and horn:
The main parts are done! We move on creating little details of the costume to make it look like a true unicorn. Let’s start with unicorn hair. Estimate the location and length of the hair. Cut 2 long rectangular pieces of iridescent fabric, sew them in the middle of the hood and torso that you created. Next, cut them into small pieces to make a fringe-like shape, now you’ve done the shining unicorn hair for your dog.
Creating the horn might be the most tricky part. Cut 2 horn-shaped pieces of iridescent fabric and sew together both sides. Fill the horn with lots of wadding inside. Close the bottom with needle and thread.
Don’t cut the thread yet. To make spiral pattern that you often see on the surface of a unicorn horn, wrap the thread around the horn evenly from bottom to top. Finish by sewing the end of the thread to the top of the unicorn horn.
d. Making unicorn ear, tail and finishing off:
Important details to complete a unicorn look are two unicorn ears. For each ear, cut 2 ear-shaped pieces of white fabric, and 1 similar piece (but with smaller sizes) of iridescent fabric. Sew 2 edges of the white fabric and glue the colored fabric on one side.
Do the same for the other ear. Next, create unicorn tail by making a hole at the back of the costume, putting several colorful pipe cleaners inside and keep them attached with thread.
Lastly, stitch ears and horn to the hood at a proper location. Unicorn horn is right before its hair while the two ears are symmetrically located at two sides.
We already got the perfect unicorn costume for dog! However, in order to put it on your dog without falling off, you need a string to hold the costume to your dog’s body. Make a few bands with iridescent material and velcro like below image. Attach them to the costume and you can easily put on or take off the costume on your pet!
Now, start the party and take the funniest photos of your dog with this newly made coat!
