Here is what you need:
A plain white shirt (I found mine at Target, of course!)
A few sheets of black felt
A friend like Hooch who can make tutus...but really any kind of white skirt would look cute!
First I found one of Bug's toys that was an oval to trace for the eyes. I think I used one of her teapots. I traced it on paper then taped it to the felt and cut out two eyes and used the fabric glue to glue on the google eyes.
Now for the hard part...making a mouth. Honestly I must have drawn 10 different mouths. To me, they all looked bad. Then when I tried to cut them out of the felt they looked even worse. And to make matters worse, I am the world's worst cutter. I cannot cut in a straight line for anything. Its bad. But finally I was able to make one that looked decent. I also had some orange and black ribbon that I tied in a bow. I used the fabric glue and glued all the pieces on to the white shirt and this is what I got:
Not bad for my first attempt! Its not anything as intricate as anything Hooch has made, but maybe next year I'll go for something more difficult.....then again maybe not!
Here's a sneak peek of the whole costume!
