Adorable Fox Costume Made From a Wool Sweater by Zanna Smith
Inspired by recent reading about foxes, Jen C. decided to put together an all-natural, upcycled fox costume. Her daughter asked that it be soft, stretchy and warm, so she upcycled and fulled a soft, thick wool sweater, adding a chevron print cotton ruffle below the drop waist skirt. The big tail is made from a piece of the same sweater (a sleeve!), stuffed with wool and carefully needle felted with fluffy white merino wool on the underside. The costume fits easily over other clothes, and tights or brown pants, if necessary – as in Ottawa, one never knows what Halloween night will bring in terms of weather! Jen then wrapped a fabric headband in thick merino wool, and added needle felted wool felt fox ears. The headband is flexible and very comfortable.
