Crochet a Halloween Flower Costume For Dogs

Updated on July 23, 2014

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

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.

      I too love sunflowers. I'm betting BWD, my Great Pyrenees, would have it off in a minute though. You have a very, very patient dog. Hugs, d

      Absolutely love Belle and her new look. Sunflowers are the ultimate flower. They make me happy, as did the cute costume you made for Belle. She is definitely the Belle of Halloween sweetness. Beautiful creative work.

      Your bull dog Belle looks delightful in her sunflower costume; truly a display of pure sweet sunshine! My dog Tidbit would have a fit if I dressed her up for Halloween, though I just may try, once again, anyway!
