A no-sew costume any parent can make
This cute cat costume comes together with a sweatshirt, marabou boa, ribbon and a few other easy-to-find craft store items.
- Oversize black sweatshirt
- Fabric glue
- 1/2 yard black ribbon
- Black marabou boa
- Straightened metal hanger
- Black headband
- Six 3-inch pieces white floral wire
- 1/2 yard sheer ribbon
Follow the instructions for the devil costume, using black sweatshirt. Glue marabou around the neck.
Cut a 1-inch-wide strip of a sweatshirt sleeve to desired length; glue straightened metal hanger down the center, then top with marabou. Glue the tail to the back of the sweatshirt.
Cut triangles (about 4 inches high and 4 inches wide) from sleeve remnants, and attach with glue to the top of a black headband. Add a small piece of marabou to the inside of each triangle.
Measure around your child's face starting at the nose; cut a piece of sheer ribbon long enough to tie at the back of her head. Glue thin white floral wire to the center (3 per side), and then top with a black pompom to form nose and whiskers.
