Crochet a Halloween Flower Costume For Dogs
You are my Sunshine....
Oh yes I did.... nobody in our house escapes my passion for crochet, and to be honest my little Bull dog Belle makes an awesome model for this years Flower Halloween costume. She loves getting dressed up and is the talk of the town. This year we decided not to be as scary as last years, little witches outfit, but go 'oh so cute'. Because she really is our little sunflower.
Though believe me she does not smell like one.
I love sunflowers, and this year grew our own. Belle herself enjoyed eating quite a few, so I thought it only appropriate to mark the last of the sunflowers in bloom with a delightful crocheted head piece fit for our little Queen of the flower garden.

Crochet Flower Hat Pattern for your Dog or Pet
Cute and really easy to make
When I was looking for a crochet pattern to make a sunflower costume for the dog. I came across such cute patterns and really just followed this one and changed the colors to look more like the sunflower would.
I felt the pattern was too similar for me to be able to re-write it and claim it as my own.
Obviously substitute your yellow and brown to make the sunflower colours
Dress up flower costumes for your Dog - yes, you can have your own little garden of doggies with flowers
My mother in laws friends was shown the picture of Belle as a sunflower and she wanted to know if she could buy a dog flower Halloween costume as she could not crochet. I found these 3 Blooming wonderful doggie costumes.
I think this is just too gorgeous for words.
This pink ensemble is blooming cute with its cape and antennae
This would be better for slightly larger dogs.
We Used our Very Own Homegrown Sunflowers as The Back ground Photo Props - My Little Sunshine Belle
We staged this using the last of our beautiful home grown sunflowers of the year. We felt it was an appropriate costume this year, as Belle the little garden vandal had also eaten most of the sunflowers when they were growing. So we were luck y to have any left.
Have you ever grown your own Sunflowers, they really are very easy to grow and a great beginner gardening especially for getting the kids involved.
